Waterproof Control Box Cover
« on: June 19, 2017, 13:02 »
I was going to make a cover for my control box as shown in several youtube videos but the recommended phone covers  (Aryca wave 111) do not appear to be made any more. Has any one made one recently, and what did you use
cheers Keith

I believe it is the Aryca WS12 that fits the control box, the letter on the end of WS12 usually denotes the colour (ie WS12B for black).  There is usually a reasonable gap on the top and sides of the control box when the control box is placed in the cover, though the silicone membrane holds it firmly in position.
There is apparently a smaller case that fits it a little better, though some confusion remains on exactly which model due to minor variations (ie some have found it fits, others not so).

Yeah Goldpick I was aware of that but just about all of the ones I could find were up to $80-00 including postage. Bit rich for me.

Try The acrya WS8 thats the one I have, Hard to find though as they are iphone 4. Used to be like $2 each.

I do have some camo canvas covers Keith, Listing to the store in the next day as soon as I finish the rebuild.

Good luck in the search
