These part files contain skid plates designed for the Shendrones Squirt V2 and V2.1. The skid plates can provide several benefits including:
- Additional protection for the electronics
- Smoother sliding surface
- Directs landing forces to center rather than arms
There are 4 versions of the skid plate design, one for each of the 4 common layouts of the Squirt V2 and V2.1. The 20mm and 30mm versions relate to the size of stack electronics used in the build. In the centered versions the stack would mounted in the rear position and their are no holes for the rear plug. In the HD versions the stack would be mounted in the forward position and a hole is provided to access the plug on the DJI digital HD air unit. If other versions are desired, please let me know and I can adjust the file.
Another design feature of the skid plates is that the stack mounting holes are large enough to clear around the head of the screws, so the stack screws would still mount flush to the carbon fiber frame, eliminating the need for longer screws.
To mount the skid plate remove the 4 bottom screws on the corners of the center part of the frame, the ones threaded into the standoffs, and reinstall them passing through the mounting holes in the skidplate. If the longer screws included with the kit are used, then the stock hardware will work for the install.
