Bixler Accessory Chassis on diydrones, I thought I would tidy my own setup and make my own adaptation for the Hawk Sky. I haven't quite finished it but it looks promising enough to write up, and I think something similar would work on other models with a front hatch.
I cut the horizontal top plate using the opening as a template. I just cut the cardboard "close enough" and then traced the opening directly onto the cardboard. I used scissors for the cutting.
I cut some holes to run wires, see the ABC lights, and reach the reset button. I attached the xbee and GPS on the top plate with velcro. I didn't make a GPS mount like diydrones did; if I have reception problem I will do so.
I'll update later when I've applied the finishing touches and gotten the thing into the air.
