DIY CF2 Carrying Case

Wanted to share my idea of a protective storage case for the CrazyFlie 2 (CF2) using foam & CD-R Disc container. Blue foam was traced & cut to the diameter of the CD container. I centered the CF2 on the foam & traced its shape w/ a marker pen. Shape was cut out of foam w/ a soldering iron cauterizat...
