    I just wanted to condense P4 3d files into one thread. I hope we can all contribute.


    Otherwise, what happens is some Chinese manufacturer will get their hands on it and try to rip us all off.

    I'll start off with the motor caps
    DJI Phantom 4 Motor Cap by jonbunker

    Hopefully everyone can contribute

    Considering the amount of time it takes to print parts, it's a no-brainer most times for people to buy them rather than buy a 3D printer, learn how to use it, invest the time in printing, etc. For example, the maker of these motor caps says it takes about 65 minutes to print one. So, it'll take a little over 4 hours to print a set. There are many people selling printed sets for $5-$10 shipped.

    I need battery covers meeting two objectives:
    1. It seals the contacts
    2. It doesn't allow battery to turn on

    Msinger has a perfect cover. Fits real nice on the P4 battery.

    I thought we are sharing 3D print files here.

    Qidi Technolgy. Pretty much a clone of a Flashforge Creator Pro.

    Unfortunately, no. The dji case is very compact

    I'm sure it would work fine in my GPC backpack if I adapted the foam to fit the P4. So far I've removed the P2/P3 foam and put the P4 case inside the backpack and that works. I guess in that case I don't need motor caps.

    i dont want to beat a dead horse here, but if you have a 3d printer. 4 hours is way faster than the post office and saves the environment and resources of the Post having to ship and deliver. i don't really think anyone is going to rush out and buy a 3d printer to print out a charger cover ;)

    have you figured out what percentage to scale it to so they fit the charger? I went through quite a bit of trial and error with the motor caps to fit just right.

    And thanks for finding those battery covers! In fact, I did order 3 from msinger, but already lost 2 of them....haha, now i can just print them again and change the colors so i can find them.

    I also found this gimbal guard that works well.....printed it in 3d filament so i can find it if i lose it at night.

    no problem at all, i really believe in the maker community and open source and not wasting resources. I think that's why msinger touched a nerve. just call a spade a spade and say they want to generate traffic or revenue , not use logical fallacies to tip toe around the subject.
