5-inch Racing Drone Stack Standoffs
The 5-inch Racing Drone Stack Standoffs are made from a yet flexible, TPU material. The standoffs come in 2-7mm sizes with an ID of 3.2mm and a wall thickness of 1.5mm. We are also experimenting with at an more flexible material, Ninjaflex, to allow for an even softer mount, but Ninjaflex is even harder to print consistently and the color choices are really limited.
The deal with soft mounts is that they are only as good as how tight you crank down your stack nut. The more you crank that down, the more the dampening material gets compressed which will change the dampening frequency which may, or may not, yield the desired results.
With this in mind, we decided to find a compromise and use TPU material and tighten our stack nuts snug.
Having specific heights allows us to clean up our builds and add some cool color to the stack. We’ve nearly eliminated the stacking of the bland black or orange O-rings. We also found that there is a potential cost savings depending on the type of O-ring you use and where it is sourced.
The STLs are available for $3.95 for 4 standoffs (you choose the 4 files you want) OR the print shop in Sheboygan can print 16 (you decide to sizes) for you at $3.95 for a bag of 16; which doesn’t include shipping.
The print shop has limited colors on hand, but we are offering green, orange and black initially. As demand grows, we will offer more colors.
