    Post your new ideas about custom laser cut parts for fpv

    Hello guys,
    my large laser machine is up and running
    here you can see it cutting 5mm thick aircraft grade birch plywood.
    It's just a battery tray for my skywalker...


    If you have more ideas of parts that can be laser cut, please tell me and I can design and cut them
    Tony.

    Can we send you battery tray dimensions and you can laser custom cut them out? I've been looking for a source for some high quality bays for my wings instead of making my own.

    As far as ideas:
    how about a P&T for the mobius cam?

    a housing, similar to the go pro/flight cam box TBS or Ritewing uses, but for the mobius

    curved sections of balsa so we can sandwich the top and bottom trailing edge of our wings around the prop. (its a common section that cracks for me)
    Some fly for attitude, others for altitude

    great ideas, I'd like to make the mobius cam box, but first I have to get a mobius. Or if I can get precise measurements... that would be great.
    So you prefer balsa? what thickness? Why not 1/8 ply

    for the bays I have found that 5mm birch ply is nearly indestructible, and with lighnening holes it is not too heavy either.

    Are you taking orders? I have more laser cut orders than my current laser cutter friends can handle
    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    I'm in the market for a Sky Surfer Mobius camera mount. If I sent you some dimensions could I get it cut out?

    OF course, picture and exact dimensions and a picture of what you are looking for, does it have to be pan+tilt? etc...
    Then I can make a cad drawing for it.
