    Covering the second servo hole

    I was wanting to get some ideals on what others used to cover the servo mounting hole with I'm not really liking the opening now that I only run one servo pics & ideals of what you used would be appreciated

    homemade or the TRX logo plastic cover<----not sure if they make it for 1/1o scale, I know 1/16 has a cover for it.
    I'm thinking of doing it homemade out of aluminum plate.

    People have reported it wont fit. Scaniris had a write up on how to make one. A cd works. Or an old servo.

    I saw a video the other day and I saw one of those covers on an e-revo chassis. Not sure how he made it fit though. It's at the end of the video in one of the pictures. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ycfz4Kuz3c

    it should fit... the Revo 3.3 uses the same servo as the E-Revo, correct?

    I just used a left over piece of lexan from trimming a body. I drilled two holes in it and screwed it into the stock holes on the chassis. Simple and light.

    Has anyone considered lexan.

    Cheap, light, effective, easy to cut, and you can use the rest of the sheet to make other things.

    I just bought 3 9"x12" sheets of 0.015 for $4.00

    The cover that fits the Revo 3.3 does not fit the E chassis perfectly.
    I made mine out of some old, solid nylon binder covers:


    FWIW, this is the most strenuous duty I will put stainless steel screws to.
    I also made mud guards for the Revos (mini and big) out of the same material. These mini ones needed some smoothing of the angles for a more finished look.


    Prototypes for me (these are not my own design - I believe credit goes to mistercrash):

    The 3.3 cover isn't a direct fit but can be modded to fit. I used it on mine.
