Default Receiver Box expansion

Has anyone come up with way to expand the size of the receiver box on the TRX4? I can barley get mine to close completely with all the wires in it already.

I'm kind of surprised that no one offers a 3D printed cover or even a complete RX box for the TRX4.

I just rigged mine up using a half inch strip of plastic, shoe goo and extended bolts. Hasnít leaked yet.

For some reason I can't see the one on thingverse. Meaning the pic.

Good ideas if you want to go taller. I think it would be cheaper to get a second box and cut the bottom out then omit the top of the second box and bolt it all together with longer screws. The rubber seal from the second box would seal the first top portion of the box to the bottom of the second. I'm envisioning this in my head so could be wrong but may be worth a try.

I went with a separate box in post 39.

Cmbscx10 great idea on extra receiver box! Thanks for the thought.

I did exactly that and used some JB weld to bond the two boxes together. Now in my receiver box I have a Y splitter for the aux wire on the mamba x, Holmes bypass for servo from BEC, and a Castle Blue link all tucked away in my receiver box. I am at max capacity but it works perfectly.

I was able to move the receiver box to the battery trey to clean up the wiring even more.
