    Well I guess some of you Phantom 2 owners may know my work, other new comers might not. Either way I have finally got around to making a version of my custom FPV undertray for the Phantom 2. It is available as of now on my Shapeways shop.

    Images of it fitted to my Phantom 1.5 (Phantom 1 in a Phantom 2 shell) are here:

    Part 'in the raw'. You can see the cut out for the Zenmuse allows fitment of both the original and new Zenmuse brackets.

    Fitted on:

    Design is identical to my original for the Phantom 1 but allows access to the P2 battery.

    With my Fatshark 3s power filter housing fitted too (4s version available):

    Just like the first versions, fitment is easy via 4 x 25mm Male to Female M3 Hex Spacers that replace the innermost leg screws. The screws are then used to mount the tray. Video of fitting it to the Phantom 2 shell will follow later but it is the same method as the original here:

    No doubt over kill to some but enjoyable to others. Feel free to ask away.

    Weight? And are those brass standoffs?

    Weight of the undertray is 20g.

    Yep they are 25mm M3 Hex Male to Female brass spacers.

    You could use nylon ones to save weight but when I tried this I found it was really easy to strip the nylon threads when tightening up. I use brass for extra security.

    If Ian or anybody else in the US orders this and needs the brass spacers, I have a bagfull of extras I'll be happy to share.
