Ardupilot Mega 2.5 Case, Side entry
It seems I will have to wait for ever to get one of the promised Covers cases from 3DR if you bought one of their APM 2. 5's ... So I placed a order and actually asked in the order ," do we still going to get the one that was promised "  ... well I got my order which I paid for and no reply to the question ...SO STILL WAITING FOR THE PROMISED CASE (Chris ?)  this one I paid for , because I need a extra one ... Waiting , waiting ...

Well the case is neat , really neat .

ArduPilot Case

Notice the Sponge inside ...Pink thing ...I still kept small piece of "the Tissue fix" ...

Here is the Official write up from 3DR Web Site ...

This is the official case for the APM 2.5 system.  It's designed to keep your electronics safe while looking great at the same time!
The new APM 2.5 enclosure is made of black translucent ABS plastic. It protects your electronics while allowing access to all pins and connectors. The inside of the enclosure is lined with ESD safe open cell foam to ensure the barometric pressure sensor is surrounded by static air and prevent unwanted readings due to airflow over the sensor. The screws that secure the enclosure have been moved to the top for ease of use. The enclosure comes in two variants straight pins and angled pins. The side entry variant protects the I/O pins to protect them in the even of a crash.

The kit comes with the following:

-Foam cover for pressure sensor on APM 2.5.
-3x 6mm screws for the shorter corners of the case.
-1x 10mm screw for the longer corner of the case. ( NOTE THIS )
-4x 4mm screws to secure the APM 2.5 board to the base plate of the case.
-4x Rubber washers to help secure the APM 2.5 board to the base plate of the case (use with the 4mm screws).
-1x Reset button.
