Kind of surprised I didn't find something like this already. Working on a simple plate to make aftermarket escs easily removable. Plate attaches to ESC with double sided tape and/or optional zip tie and plate screws into the receiver box lid or center of the chassis.

Dimensions need a little adjusting so I won't post the files yet but here is one I made real quick with 2 colors using Z hop trick. First printed the Hobbywing logo in black, then leave it on the print glass and print the mount on top of it. The mount has a cut out in shape of the logo in it and so with Z hop it lifts the nozzle over the printed black letters and fills in the areas around it and after 2 layers it continues to print as normal.

Cool! I'm guessing you still change the filament for the color change?

Yeah manual filament change. The logo takes only 1-2 minutes and when it's done I keep the bed at temp while I swap in a new spool and manual prime until the previous color is cleared then start the second print job for the plate portion. It's kinda jank but it works lol

Oh I know about manual filament change :) the pallette 2 pro has been awesome and a saving grace when I print multi-colors for others.

So fitment is pretty good so attaching files now, I will also put them up on thingiverse. In the zip file there are multiple files:
  • center of chassis mount (no logos)
  • center of chassis mount (with arrma logos)
  • receiver box mount (no logos)
  • receiver box mount (with arrma logos)
  • arrma logo by itself (if you want to attempt to print a filled void with one of the logo'd options like I did)
Because of the placement of the receiver box right next to the servo the centered mount version doesn't fit quite right so the receiver box mount files are offset just a few millimeters to clear it. Also some like logos, some don't care, so I have versions of both with and without logos.

This was my last test last night with filled void to make sure fitment was good and I think it came out pretty well!

This is an awesome file.

I printed one and needed the zip tie tabs on the other edges.

Some quick edits and I was able to make this for use with the hobbywing esc I am installing. (y) The source files are in great condition which made the edits easy ;)

Great work @suchtragedy and many thanks!!!
