@lrdesigns Ummm, that’s ORANGE. How dare you . Definitely was a concern when we swapped so we made sure the total mass of aluminum was the same. We were planning on die-casting the all aluminum case (milling that shell is prohibitively expensive for this complex piece) but the lead times would have delayed the launch >2 months. So after a lot of ideas thrown around in late-night vid-chat meetings we decided to go for a 3 piece case. 2 pieces that can be milled and a silicone over-shell for protection. @Blasto performed the same 80 amps testing that @hexakopter did a couple days back with the new case and the thermals aren’t noticeably changed. I’m working to add data-logging to our app so we’ll post some plots soon.
One final note is that the new case feels super premium. We will have a unit to show off in Vegas next weekend, can’t wait for people to get hands on feel for it.
@Itsmedant you need a BT module with special FW unlock to use metr. @FredXanadu we did explore this avenue but its looking like we won’t be able to support any kind of metr functionality with the onboard BT module. Would have blown our budget beyond what we had left (we are already a bit over for various reasons). The unity will still be compatible with their modules if you want to use their app.
