    Apologies if such a thread exists, but I couldn't find such a dedicated discussion in my searches.

    Does anyone have any 3D printer files or links to creations for the Inspire 1 to share?

    I'm hoping that Bjorn can create one for my RF-V16 GPS tracker. Is the side of the landing gear the safest place to mount such a tracker (in terms of magnetic/compass interference)?

    I purchased an Inspire 1 lens cap from: http://www.ebay.com/itm/221683341887?redirect=mobile

    and an ND lens case from:

    Hey Ascender ..probably the best place to mount the tracker would be behind the battery ( if someone made a mount that spaced it out away from the battery to avoid magnetic interference between the battery on the inspire and the battery in the rf-v16 )
    Another place would be near the center of gravity on a arm near the cockpit. . Something that would mount around the arm with a flat spot to mount the tracker on..
    or velcro it on the arm like in my pictures I posted. .
    I went over a mile with mine on with no signal problems..
    Check out shapeways on line ..they have a bunch of 3d printed stuff..tdp..

    Sounds good.. That would be best, so I could do some test fittings and see what works out the best.

    I haven't verified these dimensions from an earlier post:
    the rf-v16 tracker measurements are 41mm L ×36mm W ×17mm H

    made a universal boom clamp type mount. clamps to boom and then use industrial grade double side tape.

    I'm going to use this for my new trackimo that should arrive this week.
