    Hey guys, I have a storm fpv transmitter that is attatched behind my gimbal.

    I hate the bare wires and chip board being exposed so much, Has anyone come up with a way of protecting this bar putting it inside of the copter(mine is too big)

    it gets quite hot so not sure how to go about it.
    Someone suggested coating the whole thing in some kind of adhesive moister seal glue stuff? might be an idea...

    cheers
    peter

    there is always something like this - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:99048
    or this - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:306786

    These are not my designs!!!! Just things on saw on there that I liked and thought about putting on my quad. I have yet to do so either. There are several guys on here with 3D printers who could print those out for you (myself included). I would be happy to print one out for you but you may be better off to find someone closer to you to print it.

    Some black heat shrink tubing will work well. Just make sure you leave some airflow around the heatsink.
