  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • DarkButterfly: My laminate arrived, the rebuild is coming along ~~

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: Thanks, can't decide on fibre glass or laminate. Like the idea of fibre for some reason, don't know why.

  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Re: WHICH? 3D Printer - Malyan M200
« Reply #155 on: June 07, 2018, 09:44:40 »
Does anyone have experience with the Malyan M200
I'm after a small, simple 3D printer
It wont be used for more than small Quad parts - ie I cant see anything bigger than 2-3 inches being printed at this stage.

build it your self theirs some great guides out there you learn so much and the first time it breaks down you know how to fix it and if your lucky you can sell for a prophet
i've built two now if you like tinkering then its good and easy 

id recommend something like this remember to have lift lid and door its cheap it easy to store as its a box and it keeps all the mess enclosed and if the roof and door will make great for stopping drafts killing your prints as that can be a big issue later on down the road honestly if your going to do it build it

its basicly a ramps board running everything theres lots of information on ramps there old and noisy but still do the job great place to start inexpensive 18 dollars for the hole brain run it with a raspberry pie using octo print for web contorl of your printer from anywhere on your network again octo print can be added in at a later date
