Has anyone printed a bracket to hold the RA+ display/head unit? If so, would you mind sharing the STL file? If nobody posts I will update after I design one. I can potentially work on one for the star controller too but I don't have one of those.

Ended up designing my own. My printer is new so the print isn't as clean as I'd like but I'll get that dialed in sooner or later.

Oh very nice, and I love the logo!

One critique if I may, I'd make it 3/4 of the height of the controller for stability and add screw holes on the back or maybe dimples for screw locations so that everyone can use different sized screws. But at least with the dimples we know mounting would generally be straight, lol.

I...just realized I forgot the screw holes! I got in a hurry to print it. Oops. Will add and update Thingiverse.

It is very stable at this height. Fits very snug too. You have to consider adding unnecessary height can add hours to the print time.

Updated thingiverse with mounting holes. Left the one without holes in case anyone wants to use that one.

Will you be selling these and can you print in other colors?

Hadn't really thought about it, was just making them to print/share. I could probably print a few though if people don't have the means to print them. Right now I only have red/white/black filament. I also need to figure out the issue with my printer regarding those little horizontal lines before I'd feel comfortable selling anything to anyone.
