kilroy07 submitted a new resource:

$10 Foam Glider PowerPack - 3D printed powerpack frame for foam glider

You can find this on Thingiverse as well-
View attachment 108370
Designed for my specific hardware (basically an "F" pack) but you may get your stuff to fit.

A 1300 2S balances nicely (front skid pad right up to slope on glider.)

Not a huge fan of Wal-Mart... Hobby Lobby has these as well (and you can often find a 40% off coupon!)

I assume that this is the working version and not the one that lead to the battle wounds in the foam? ;-)

Well, I did in fact strengthen the attachment of the pod after the "Extreme attitude landing"...
The worst part was I didn't get it on camera, it was... "Spectacular!!" LOL

Speaking of battle wounds... This is what happens when you don't hold the pod and test motor direction... IMG_7017.JPG
I always wondered why they were SO adamant about removing props in the videos (now I know!)...

kilroy07 updated $10 Foam Glider PowerPack with a new update entry:

Now Split versions and 9g Servos!

Update 16 June


I originally designed this for micro servos, but have had a request to design it for 9 gram servos as well. An issue also came up with the build area so I have also split the design at the battery tray.


So in summery;
PowerPod The original one - piece Pod for Micro Servos
PowerPod_Split Same as above, Split for smaller build areas.


PowerPod_9gServo One piece PowerPod for 9gram Servos.
PowerPod_9gServo_Split Same as above...
