I'm very grateful to be in community that supports a laser-equipped Fab Lab. Lately I've been designing and fabricating custom components for my unmanned aircraft, especially components that are easily integrated into existing systems.
Above is a photo of one of my latest creations: a solution that houses a five or six-cell LiPo, an APM 2.5 autopilot with uBlox GPS, and potentially an RC receiver. Other features include vibration dampening via rubber o-rings, and slots to secure the module to the airframe via hook-and-loop straps. The material is 1/8th-inch birch.
Here's a custom acrylic (1/4-inch) mounting solution for the HeliPal Storm Drone quadrotor. Also makes use of 3mm rubber-o rings for vibration dampening. Not sure if it's the ideal material for this kind of structure, however, so I'm anxious to take it out for the first time.
