OK!!! Test Install went well. The extra room is nice I admit. I slapped one on a boss 7 that I’m currently flying and another on an E011 silverwhoop that I sent to @Denovich . While working on the Mohawk I spotted a tiny error in the symmetry of my geometry so that is fixed now and officially today on the day before Christmas eve - I bestow upon you, the hobby community, my gift of the Shanghai Mullet!!! If you are new to vacuum forming - don’t be intimidated. It is super easy with a little practice. I will always be available to answer any questions you have. My recommendation as always is to use HDPE plastic to form over this mold. It’s easy to come by in your recycling. Milk jugs are a personal favorite of mine. A canopy made from a milk jug will be roughly .3 to .4 grams once cut out. Camera mounting can be as simple as a piece of double sided VHB tape under your camera, a bit of hot glue inside the canopy between the lens barrel and the canopy face, or I suspect there is even a certain 3d printed mount that will also work under this which clips on the lens barrel (also uses double sided tape under camera). If you want one of these but do not want to go to the trouble to learn vacuum forming and make it yourself, and you are in the USA, I do sell them on ebay in both white and black plastic. In the spirit of this forum I am not providing links here as the intention of this post is to encourage you to make one yourself and I am here to help you do exactly that and to tell you that you CAN do it!!! Please let me know if you are planning to dive in and I will share all the tips and tricks I’ve learned after making thousands of these!
So Merry Christmas MMC - the Shanghai Mullet officially belongs to you!!! You’ve been good this year and you deserve it!
Special thanks to all who have participated in this thread, in this project, and to those of you who have supported the development of this truly awesome design. You all are the reason that this is now available to anyone who would like to try to make one themselves!!!
