When I set up my openppg today for a flight, I noticed that the lower fixation for the hand strap of the throttle controller had broken off. Did that happen to others too? Has anybody modified the model to thicker material, because there is no real reason to make it so thin? Especially since 3D printed material is not super solid and has a wood like structure, which breaks off easily if the force by accident comes from the wrong direction.
Also are the latest elastic handstraps which we got from Paul 15mm wide instead of 20mm, which means that the cut out for the strap can now be 5mm less, which almost doubles the material at the weak spot.
I tried to find the STL models of the batch 3.0/3.2 throttle controller casings, so I could quickly 3D print repair parts and get flying again (and reinforce the model a little). But at our GitHub I could only find the old batch 2 parts. Or do I look at the wrong place?
Actually none of the mechanical batch 3 and 4 modifications are on GitHub. Isn’t OpenPPG open source anymore?
I also read all threats on “throttle controller”, hoping to find a link to the V3.2 throttle models, but only found the old models (plus nice alternatives invented by the forum).
So it looks that I have to glue my old throttle, if I don’t want to wait long for a shipping from the US. Which then raises the question whether the parts are PLA or PETG, because they require different glue (when it has to be strong). Does anybody know?
