A few radio accessories printed out recently for the ‘817 transceiver (from Thingyverse, see links):
DC plug adaptor using an XT60 connector. I have been using these connectors for a while now, they are small and capable of a lot of current. On my model plane, they were passing 50 Amps for brief periods with no signs of overheating.
18650 Lithium battery 3 cell carrier for inside the FT-817. I have put together 18650 carriers for the ‘817 in the past, but the original lid would not go on properly. This carrier has a slot for a 3 cell battery management system board (BMS), so it is an improvement over the previous. The printed lid is raised slightly so as to accommodate the larger cells. It fits very well. Still waiting for the BMS to arrive.
Three band end fed half wave antenna. This design was posted previously in the blog. It was made into a 3D print project and posted on thingyverse by mfhepp.
It came out a bit lighter than this one. The matcher box is integrated into the winder.
This one is for the KX2. Its a KX2 paddle using RF finger stock. I had some finger stock left over from a HF screwdriver antenna build and it was just the right fit.
