    Thanks. The one tab wonder is a little off center so I went to see how it did with two, over all I do think four tabs is overkill as well.

    Actually on version 5 now.
    Rounded corners, made it a three tab instead of a four tab. Made my lettering actually visible now lol.
    I may lower the towers again and the height of the strap support so it fits tighter. One could add a thin piece of Velcro under it or even hot glue it in place.

    Wrong. Version.... 10 is almost perfect. Holy smokes I keep tweaking and printing like a mad scientist.

    One of the edits was to make a shelf for the edges of the ultra IBEC to provide clearance for the resin and to keep it more secure.

    I’ll add more pics, but I am now pleased with this design. Might mass produce and see if I can sell these things for others to enjoy.

    Let’s us know what you decide. It looks like you have the final design. if you look back at the first one it sure has come a long way. Like they say Rome was not built in a Day.

    Redesigned the Futaba R7014SB tray. The original was too boxy, designed for foam padding... now it’s a snug fit, servo style grommets and sleeves. Now I am thinking about raising the side center posts to act like clips to retain the Rx in place of a strap.

    I would stick with the straps I belive it will allow the the receiver to be little bit more isolated from vibration than hard clips.

    Thinking I may add a slot on one side of the trays strap recess so I can glue in a piece of double backed Velcro and then I can wrap it around itself while tugging. OR maybe just glue the Velcro to the tray itself? Now that I'm writing this... maybe I could create a flat to use a small screw to hold it in place. What do you guys think? The screw is sounding like a good user friendly idea.... now thinking a slot with a recess for a small servo screw :fist_pump: THEN I could tug on it, and wrap it around on itself. :applause: I may have answered my own question.

    I also discovered that thin CA leaves a white haze when it dries on PLA, kinda nasty looking actually. doesn't rub off easily, and not all the way I'm finding. just learning as I go!
