HangsFromSky batch 3 build log

I tried hot glue on my also, but I ended up just reprinting the handle and making the hole smaller so it pinches tighter on the cable.

I think You could use zip ties to the backplate. Either through some of the holes or to a stand off. And then make a loop and zip tie again that way if you do yank and it pulls through the zip tie it just shortens the loop. I think that’s what I saw glider pilot use in his.

Yeah, I zip tied to the carbon plate. But as for the controller side I have batch 2 and the wires fit tight through the hole.

I tied a know right before where the cable exits the case:

I posted a couple of other issues in a separate thread: (Throttle-)Cable issues

PM if interested.

Wow. Sorry to hear it and - ■■■■ man! 6 months ago I’d have snapped it up.

Picking up where @HangsFromSky left off, I made a fix to his fix, since I managed to break one. I replicated the delrin fix but this time in black. This uses the 30mm bolt version of the 3D printed hoop connector from @GliderPilot (BE CAREFUL - very thin tips). I am pretty pleased with the results.

Nicely done! The black definitely looks better.

Nice Job ! Where did you find the stl for the 3d printed parts ? Can you point me to ?

Here is a link to my most recent fix (including the stl files) which are much stronger and closer to how batch 4 and greater are made. However, This fix requires shortening the hoop sections because the arms are shorter.

The stl files for the design that doesn’t require shortening the arms are here:
