What is the widest fuse it will accommodate? I fly PSS type slope gliders and the widest I have is 5 3/4 inches or 145 mm wide.

Thank you Rick

So i knew it would take a while but for giggles i stretched this one. Takes a while to print. Had it going for 6hrs!. About 150mm width, but about 60mm deep. How deep do you need?. Not really familiar with slope plane sizes.

That would be more than enough to suit my needs.

Thank you

Had a chance to fit it together. 150mm width between pads, 150mm from front post to back pad, 60mm depth. Ended up having to widen the base. But, i had run out of orange, so the base ended up green. Installed two 5kg load cells, so it should handle over 15 lbs.
Is that depth enough?

They are all calibrated and tested before sending them out. Never had a problem with any of these. If you have a problem, let me know. There is no reason it won’t last for many many years. The only reason it would fail would be overloading it, which would be hard, or water damage.

No. It creates an access point, it’s own WiFi. You supply power via micro usb and connect to it via your smart phone, tablet, computer, etc. There are no wires going from your phone to the scale. The connection is done wireless.
If you watch the video, turn the unit on by supplying power, go to your WiFi settings on phone, computer, etc, and select it. Then open your browser via chrome, explorer, safari. Just like a www. Address , you type
192.168.4.1 in the adress bar. This brings up the cgscale page.
Check out the video below. This phone Is Just connecting wirelessly to the scale.
