3D model description

This is a custom bracket used to mount an iPhone 4 to a 60Beat Controller for control of an AR.Drone quad-copter. This version allows the use of the iPhone while still in a case. The iPhone is off center so that the display is centered for viewing when flying in FPV mode. The unit is presently somewhat top heavy, and so I may add either handle extensions or handle counterweights to balance it out in a future version. You may want to redesign the iPhone shell to better fit your cased iPhone, or create a custom spacer to use with the provided shell.

3D printing settings

  1. Use a 5mm tap to thread the top portion of the center three holes on the back of the 60Beat as shown in the photo.
  2. Glue the connecting bracket to the smooth side of the back plate for best adhesion. Check the photos for orientation before gluing.
  3. Glue the iPhone shell to the connecting bracket with the cutout for the earphone jack at the upper right corner.
  4. Mount the assembled iPhone mount onto the back of the controller using three M5 x 7mm button head screws. Only thread the screws in far enough to press lightly on the back plate, as the plate is flat and the controller surface is irregular.
