For me the indicator side comes up 1 layer only and is too thin. Should be 2 layers or 0,8mm thickness.

Thanks for this, a really nice design.
One problem with it is that I dont particularly like the clip sticking in the side of my head.

It is much more comfortable the other way around
The only way to do this is to Mirror it, otherwise the cable comes out at the back.

The only downside is that all the letting is reversed too - this is not too much of a problem, but would quite like a mirrored version with "FPV" actually removed altogether, for even greater comfort.

Thanks again, I hope you find this feedback useful.

Very nice model, printing it right now. Would you mind sharing your original files for changing something? I would like to remove the clip.

Thx dude! sadly i dont have the original file anymore sind my external hdd crashed!
lost alot of stufff...

How to you charge this build?
Are you using the lipo programm 3s in your charger and then connect to balacing and power plug on charger?

Well i charge it with my rc lipo charger, using the 2s lipo balance program.
just connect the power and balance lead to the charger and run!

What a beautiful print! I'd like to make something similar that would hold 2 18650 batteries, a toggle switch, charging port and room for a small LED driver circuit. My sister uses a head mounted light for her work and they want like $100 for their "battery". My goal isn't really to save money, rather have a totally cool, personalized battery!

I'm not asking for a solution, rather, I'd love to learn how to make an object like this. I have had a hard time getting lettering on different surface sides. I'd love to know how you make the gentle curves of the belt clip. The more I look at the print, the more I love this thing.

I'm 100% nubie Have been working with TinkerCad and Cura.

This is truly an awesome design! Thanks!

Can you post clear picture of back PCB for voltage monitor part

Got wrongs ordered want to compare difference to try to make it to work on 2s

Regards

Link to the correct pcb is in the description.

I know but dont want order again if its only varies in resistors i make to work that way hope you help me
Regards

Uh, are you guys soldering your battery connections or using terminals?

What's the difference between the v2 and v3?

The Clip of the v3 is closer to the case.

Hi, is it possible to move clip on the other side, it is a bit uncomfortable to wear?

Tnx

Could you maybe make a version with a 'fatter' clip?

Nice design! Needed to reprint mine as it was too tight. Ended up at about 105% and that was almost to tight. Had some electrical tape around the batteries so could be that. I recommend a bit of upscaling though. Part at the indicator was too lose and came of so the whole board is exposed, only cosmetic effect. Big thanks!

Thx man!! yeah there can be nothing around the batt, not even tape.
Well i test it on a 15k 3D printer and my kossel printer and both time everything fitter just perfect,
So i think this is due to printer tolerances, the only thing i did was go met a diamond file through
the slot for the pdb, and then the tap will not break because its just sitting on the button.
Grtz

The design looks great. I have printed the battery case and it fits the batteries very well. BTW, the voltage display boards that I have got are different from the one used here. Would it be possible for you to modify your design and create another version for this board http://www.banggood.com/2S-3S-4S-5S-Lipo-Battery-Voltage-Display-Indicator-Board-Polymer-Power-Indicator-Panel-p-1095698.html?rmmds=search (if not too troublesome :P)? Anyway, thank you very much and I love this case!

Let me try to find some time, because at the moment working like 6 days a week, so pretty busy!

awesome works thanks a lot !

Your welcome and thx!!

currently printing it ...

hi, can you please provide links for the equipment used to build one.

thanks

Check the description, added the components and links.

Awesome, thank you.
