UPDATE 05.02.19: Thank you everyone for your support and interest in my design. I have since moved on to new projects and will no longer be updating this Thing, replying to comments or answering messages on Thingiverse. I appreciate all of the comments, builds, downloads and collections, wishing all of you makers a happy 2019 :) Zack.

- 4x M3 nuts
- 1x #29 elastic band
- 1x zip tie & heat shrink
Attach the screws and nuts to either side of the top cover as shown in image 8. Fasten the zip tie near the front of the top cover by looping it through the slots (image 9), the heat shrink slides over both the zip tie and antenna (image 10) from your Rx to keep it upright and away from the props (no need to shrink it down as long as it is a tight fit). To see how to attach the top cover to the lower frame using the elastic band, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uww9_MAOlg8

I use a cubic infill as I've found it provides a great balance of strength and weight, as well as a faster print time.
I'm using the MK2S, Flashforge PLA, and cubic infill.
