Futaba FT-3A F-66 or FR21case

Post by tiptipflyer » 09 Dec 2018, 14:05

Hi guys,
yesterday night I had a few hours time, so I decided to make a replica case for a Futaba FT-3A, F-66 or FR21 S/C transmitter. Here is the result. I did the best I could, but be aware, my programming and drawing skills are very limited.
The case has not been printed yet, so I do not know, how it will look like in real.
I also never saw a real Futaba FT-3A, F-66 or FR21 tranny, so I have no idea, how big or small it is.
My only reference was the picture on the singlechannel homepage.
That is the best what I could achive. If anyone likes to make it any better, feel free to do so.
Here are the OpenSCAD and stl. files.

Cheers
Frank

P.S I am looking forward for the O.S. Pixie MK2 case files.

Frank,

I have an FT3A which I have Gigarized, I could send you any measurements or pictures you want or even send it to you to take your own measurements........

Ron..... Why do pictures sometimes get turned on their side?

Thank you Paul for the offer,
if you could send me the measurements and maybe a picture from the back and the side, that would be great.
No need to send the transmitter to me.
