TBS Discovery GPS Stand

TBS Discovery GPS Stand

So on my TBS Discovery, I didn’t have a place to mount the GPS Stand.

I decided against drilling holes into my chassis and possibly weaken or damaging the chassis.

I accessed the chassis for a suitable mounting point for the GPS, then I measured all the components.

Design

I did all the design work in Google Sketchup as I am very familiar with the programme and was able to design the part within a few hours.

the design is very simple and this is the way I intended it to be as all it needed to do was span 4 fixing points and allow the GPS to have a solid fixing point.

I used my CTC to print the GPS Stand and these are the completed component images.

How To Print

Printing is simple I used abs for strength.

Infill doesn’t need to be high as it uses the strength of the chassis to support it. so 1 shell and infill of 10% to 20% would be more than enough.

Receiver Holder V8FR-II for TBS Discovery

Receiver Holder V8FR-II for TBS Discovery

One of the problems I had with my TBS Discovery was mounting my receiver, mine was the FrSky V8FR-II an easily found and cheap receiver.

So I design this adapter that spans over two fixing points that already exist in the TBS Discovery so no drilling and weakening your chassis.

Not only do you save on your chassis strength vital if you ever crash your drone, but also having a layer of protection added to your Frsky receiver.

This item is available at the link below and is priced reasonably well much less than a TBS Discovery chassis or new FrSky receiver.

Available in many colors to bling up your TBS Discovery.

More products for the TBS Discovery please check them out.

Design

I choose to design the receiver hold in Google Sketchup as i like the program and find it powerful and not to over complicated to use.

How To Print

This is a easy item to print as it is flat and square. No raft is need and No supports either.

Infill can be very low as strengh is not needed i would advise 10% to 20% with a single outer shell.
