It’s shitposting time again for me
Introducing the Covix2 - An esk8.news exclusive mod, inspired by DIY, driven by quarantine.
This is a printable shell for the Flipsky VX2 remote. Changes include:
“Armored” shell - With an average thickness of 3.3mm, increased from 2.5mm of the original shell, better strength against impact. M3 and M4 thru bolts will be used to add structural integrity
Better ergonomics - the chin has been completely removed, allowing for a much wider range of grip, people with small hands may find the original unwieldy, this is mostly due to the distance between the chin hook and wheel. Version with finger loop hole available.
Adjustable display angle - Anyone finding the original display odd to look at during use, now can flip the display up for better visibility.
Modified for easy print - Made to print with little to no support. Main shells can be done completely unsupported, display module needs minimal, resulting in much better finish quality, especially in PLA.
All original parts is retrofitted into the shell, including buttons and wheel - However, a mod version will also upgrade to a printed wheel with a steel spindle resting on 2 ball bearings - extremely smooth.
Many colors to print from - Fully customizable mix, left/right shell can be mix/matched in colors.
All files are in next post. For any other combination of “add-ons” not listed, shoot a PM and I’ll create it.
Potential mod: A trigger conversion.
Thanks to @BigBen for the original models that was used as reference.
