3D model description

I've owned my pagoda antenna for a while now and have liked everything about it besides its strength. It's so easy to get the 3 plates bent out of shape! I've tried nearly every other 3D printed pagoda cap/protector on Thingiverse but they all either fall off easily or just don't protect the antenna. That is why I designed this super durable, super simple pagoda antenna protector. It consists of two sets of spacers and an upper TPU cap. the spacers ensure that each plate remains perfectly spaced at all times. The upper TPU cap ensures that the spacers don't fall out and that the upper plate doesn't get scratched or chipped in the event of a hard crash. The bottom spacers are held securely in place by a tube of heat shrink.

Note that this is only compatible with the 5.8ghz version of the pagoda antenna as the others have different plate spacing.

Cut a tube of heat shrink to approximately a 20mm length. Make sure that it has a large enough diameter to slide over the lower plate spacers. Slide it over; heat; all done!
