APM 2 cases now available, also come free with new APM 2s

Good news: the 3D Robotics store is now offering custom-molded cases for APM 2, in both top-pin and side-pin variety. They're $4.99 each. All new APM 2s now ship with these cases, included free!

They're smokey semi-transparent, so you can see the LEDs through the case. The button on the top connects to the APM 2 reset button.

I guess I'll wait for the 3DR cases and hopefully wait till the EU version of the telemetry kit become available again, and then will order all the 3 together. Too bad the e-commerce software doesn't allow to start buying products that are not in stock and have to rely on the email notification.

Cool, I've just seen you now added the possibility to order even if not available... Will the 3DR cases will be just for radios, or will it be a case that contains both APM and radio? Also it seems the case doesn't have the hole for the 3DR pins.

Ah good!  I was just starting to wonder when these were going to be available!

The cases for the radios will be nice too!

@Manfred: that's a really nice case!  CNC Aluminum?  I made an APM1 aluminum case a few months ago.  I actually like it, it provided some mass to the thing which helped with a vibration damping system.

Chris, Paul, etc: if you ordered the unassembled APM 2 before there was an option to select the case, and it hasn't been shipped yet, email sales@3drobotics.com with your order number and which case you want. I can't promise that they can process it, but I know they'll try.

Nice case for the APM 2.0. I should not have ordered mine last december, sigh. Nevertheless, good job 3DRobotics! This is a winner!

Perhaps a little off topic, but since this is now being shipped with all new orders, is rigid or semi-rigid (2-sided foam tape) mounting now the preferred method rather than suspending the APM2 on o-rings as per the wiki (http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/MountingtheAPM2Board)?

Brian: to be honest, the new ArduCopter code is so good that that kind of vibration isolation should no longer be necessary. Simple double-stick foam tape is fine.
