I’m getting a little ahead of myself. I’m not done setting up the electronics (previous post) for the Tarot T960 hexacopter drone, but once I got to the point of being able to, I HAD to mount this awesome dome to see what it looked like.
The dome (see badgerfly.com) is made of highly impact resistant plastic. They even included a test piece of the plastic with the unit for a demonstration. I bent the hell out of it and could never break it. Many multirotor helicopters like this are flown with no dome to protect the top of the craft. GPS’s are often mounted on flimsy poles. Often during testing or some bad flying, the unit will flip and break all the stuff on the top. The dome will protect that from happening.
Which dome did you order from badgerfly?
Also, looking at the dome and how you mounted it seems to interfere with the locking screws of the folding arms. How did you work around this?
UAP2 Dome – Hemisphere with Optional GPS Unit Pocket – Clear Polycarbonate Material
Simple solution on the arm locking screws. Just put the Y bolts on the underside of the frame!
