Custom Panels



Mount electronics, instruments, and more in a Seahorse case with our custom Seahorse case panels. We offer two options for this process. The first is through our online Custom Plate Creator. The Plate Creator allows panels to be previewed, quoted, and immediately ordered online. If you have a more specific design in mind, or need something our Plate Creator can't do, see below for details on submitting a custom design.

These optionally-waterproof inserts are perfect for creating a custom Seahorse FPV ground station case, pyrotechnics firing panel, or launch controller. Medical spec components also available.

We also carry blank panels - click here.

Engraving

Recommended for use on any material with a contrasting surface treatment such as anodized aluminum or layered acrylic.


Finishing:

Anodizing

While pre-anodized aluminum is available, we can also anodize your panels post-cutting to provide a full-coverage durable finish.
Powder Coating

Powder Coating

Protect your panel with a high-quality powder coat applied as a final step.


Accessories:


Press-Fit Fasteners

Press-Fit Fasteners

Mount PCBs, attach mounting hardware, and more with press-fit fasteners built into your panel. Concealed-head and flush-head available. Flush-mount nuts available on panels 0.090" and thicker. Perfect for adding windows and vents too!


Seahorse Case Modifications:


Side Cutouts

Side Cutouts

Make your case usable even when closed, with cutouts on the sides of the case.

Note: Side cutouts can compromise waterproofing, and will void the manufacturer's lifetime warranty. Please contact our customer service department for details.
