With less than 24 hours to the official release of the mini tricopter, I have uploaded some basic optional modifications for the mini tricopter 🙂
Find them at Thingiverse 🙂13 September, 2015 at 19:18 #19466
A custom canopy for the mini. Allows you to choose a different color of the canopy (if you don’t want to spoil the original with spray paint).
Also adds the option of tilting the mobius plate 0-25 degrees.

Racing canopy for the RCExplorer V3, V3.5 and mini. Extra protection for the board camera and less drag. Spoiler is removable to fit Mobius/Runcam/GoPro session.
Source file included.

I’d like to see a photo of the skids mounted. Thanks14 November, 2015 at 21:55 #22557
The skids are mounted on the racing canopy picture. Here is a picture of them in orange.

Nice… I ended up using stick on furniture feet on the bottom of the power distribution board. This looks mutch better.7 January, 2017 at 18:34 #35886SamParticipant
Late to the party, but great job. I love these bodykit mods. Does it add much weight? Does extending the nose let you get a camera with a case in there? What program did you use to model it?10 January, 2017 at 11:36 #35923
I’m working on a new lighter canopy using laminated 1mm plywood, 1.5mm plywood and PETG – mostly for show though. It is lighter than the original G10 canopy, but requires access to 3D printer and laser cutter or coping saw… More along the lines of “Pimp my ride” than actual functionality.
There are no dedicated mounts for a cased camera, but I guess you could make one if you wanted to. Since there are different mounting on cased cameras, I can’t make one that fits all.
I use Autodesk Fusion 360 for all my modeling work.17 January, 2017 at 03:45 #36107The-One-Who-Never-CrashesParticipant
I wish David would do a CF cage. I’d buy one right away!!
I’ve seen people mount cased cameras with 3D printed mounts:
Or you can use LEGOs 🙂 :

Instead of expecting David to put a carbon canopy into production, you could just make one yourself, using a coping saw and some patience? I would go for 1mm side plates and 1.5mm top plate 🙂 Remember to get the woven carbon plates!21 January, 2017 at 12:01 #36180
I made a RunCam/Foxeer adapter for the RCExplorer canopy. Find it on Thingiverse.
