A removable servo tray for thin F3x electro fuselages

Some information about my removable servo tray for the Shinto electro.

It is composed of 2 parts because of the 3D printing constraints. The lower part is just to provide a rounded support to fit perfectly with the fuselage. The upper part allows to mount 2 servos MKS6100/HV6100/HV6110 in a oblique position, upside down, in order to have a free movement of the control rods.

The 2 plate are glued together with some cyano, then fixed into the fuselage with 3 mm screws. On my Shinto, it will be located just in front of the wing joiner. Of course, it means that you abandon the elevator control snakes and sleeves, and replace them with carbon rods and the corresponding MPjet aluminium Threated adapter, so you can easily mount and remove the servo tray when needed.

I will share the CAD drawings and STL files soon.

PS: I like DesignSpark very much !!!!! :)

  1. you glue the 2 parts together and screw the whole thing to the fuselage don't you ?
    when i first saw the drawing i thought the lower part was meant to be glued to the fuse and you screw the upper part on it.
    Is it less stiff/reliable like that ?
