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.

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........

I won't be using it until next season but I would want it back before Brexit or we will have to pay duty on it!!! :evil:

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.
