Which LOC kits are those? Or is this 5.5" build original design?

Interesting configuration for an ebay. Could you explain why the unique shape? I'm guessing that it's designed to fit around a central tube, but why the open segment?

I'm going to bet that open section is for where the eye bolt connects to the centering ring.

Nailed it. Center hole is fir the loooong motors and the cutout is for the eye hook for the shock cord.

How to you power up the altimeter? Looks like a good candidate for a Eggfinder mini-wifi switch.

It also looks sealed, is there a vent anywhere?

I was planning on using a screw switch on this on. I do need to look into the wifi switch though. I could use a couple of them. It will be vented by the hole for the screw switch and another hole if needed

Agreed. This is one of the coolest av-bays I’ve seen in a long time.

I talked to the creator and he can make them for you for $35 shipped. I need to know what color(orange, black, green, silver, yellow or blue), charge well size, what altimeter and what battery.
