This thing is triple remix based on my last one "Antenna guard protection cover for FPV camera Eachine TX01 TX02 TX03" http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1925995 (Nov 29, 2016) combined with "Eachine E010 FPV" http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1919430 by "Diymik" (Nov 27, 2016) and "whoop camera mount for eachine TX01" http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1815820 by "sepela" (Oct 9, 2016).
I have merged all designs creating a new design to mount the Eachine TX01 and TX02 FPV (first person view) AIO (all in one) camera besides to protect its antenna when is installed for creating the named "Tiny Whoop" mini drone using the frames of the models Eachine E010, JJRC H36 or FuriBee F36, that do not come with FPV camera.
The main idea was to include a second guard protection cover or hook to improve the safety of the antenna because in my opinion only one piece would not be enough depending of the way of a possible crash. I have redesigned the mount, reducing the thickness of the mount vertical walls and the space inside for the camera. The guards insertion holes are taller that make no necessary to use glue or hot-melt adhesive to fix the guards. Neither would be needed to use it to fix the camera on the mount, because when it is inserted is very well fixed and does not move.
For the guards/hook I have reused the one in my previous remix, with 1.6 mm thickness and the original one created by "sepela" with 2.41 mm. A new one with 2.0 mm has been created as well. There are two versions for each, one with the original length (large) and a second one bit shorted that can be used if you want to reduce the space between the guard and the upper zone of the leaf mushroom antenna of the camera. In addition I have included the straight hook designed by "Diymik" creating three versions with thicknesses 1.6 mm, 2.0 mm and 2.41 mm. It gives more chances to choose the one you prefer or like. As the original design by "Diymik", the camera inserted into this new mount has a 15 degrees tilt.
Combining the mounts and guards I have created 18 different kits / files ready for print. If you prefer you can also download the parts separately.
For ease I have included in my bundle the original 4 spacers (1 mm) designed by "Diymik" for the mount. As he says they give it clearance off the circuit board. I recommend to use them. Besides the 2 tiny screws that come with the drone, also 2 pieces more will be needed to secure the 4 points of the mount.
To insert the camera into the mount, please insert firstly the right side rotating the camera and then the left side (with the lens camera in front of you), pressing down until camera touches the base. For accomplish this, you will require see the lower corners of the two electronic boards of the camera, and the pines under display, moving and pressing the camera until fits correctly inside the space. When it touches the base it will fit perfectly and will not move. To extract it from the mount do it in reverse mode. You can bend the sides for ease the extraction.
For last, to get better result in the printing is mandatory to use a 0.4 mm nozzle or less in the 3D printer because the insertion guards holes have thin walls. All my printing tests were made using 0.4 mm nozzle and choosing 0.8 mm for shell thickness in Cura software slicer and a low printing speed.
This design is valid for Eachine TX01 and Eachine TX02 FPV AIO mini cameras. Both share the same size. However it is not valid for Eachine TX03 FPV AIO camera because it higher and wider. For TX03 you can download another mount desinged by me from Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2072111
Due to the increase of the total weight of the drone using the Eachine TX01 / TX02 camera with this mount I recommend to replace the factory motors with others with more power, like Chaoli 615.
