Mounting Plate
« on: November 02, 2018, 02:10:38 PM »
Does anyone know if the F16 mounting plate will work for the F4V3? If not, what are people using to mount F4s into CG-1500s?


Thanks

I just run to Home Depot and get the clear plastic and cut to size.

Or go to your local walmart and buy a plastic cutting board.  You or may not have to cut it.

I found the local plastics retailer much cheaper than Home Depot's outrageous pricing.

Thanks guys for the advice. I did end up buying some plexiglass from Homedepot. Scoring it with a razor blade wouldn't cut it, so I completed the cut with a multi tool. I drilled the wholes for the standoffs. So far I mounted power supply. I might double deck the plexiglass so I can fit a power supply, raspberry pi, F4V3 and power distibution board in the CG-1500.

Check out JDeation.com, you can do layouts of your various component, and then print out your layout for producing your own custom mounting plate, even double decker for the CG-1500.  All this is for Free, if you want, they will fabricate your design for you as well for a very reasonable price.

However they are closed for the season (until January), so you'll have to print the design and make it yourself if you need it this year.

I used jdeation.com's design and modified it so I could cut it in my laser. His original files are too large for my laser. This is a double decker with a F4v3.
