"Computron" AM Radio to Bluetooth Speaker

I bought this little AM radio a few years ago intending to turn it into a Bluetooth speaker. I think they are from the 1970's or 80's.

I used a super simple circuit, just a DW-CT14+ Bluetooth amp and a now discontinued SparkFun Power Cell. The batter can also be driven using this Icstation TP4056. I also 3D printed a little mount in there to keep the USB port steady.

3D Printed iPad Mini Suction Mount

I made this because my other airplane has a 1" ball built in to the dash, so I could share parts of my RAM suction mount between airplanes. This brings the iPad quite close to you in portrait orientation so it's good for IFR.
