Whats on the Printer - 2.2 beadlock! (3 min 50 sec)


Hey everyone!

This is the first video of my Whats on the printer series, where Ill be covering 3d printing and RC! This one needs a little work and ill fine tune the timelapse videos including links to the parts once complete and information on 3d printing.

The Printer:
Prusa i3

Additions:
LCD/SD reader
Custom Spool holder

The Print:
This is a 2.2 size beadlock that has been oversized to stretch a 2.2 tire, it is slightly wider and larger diameter for a super strong fit for the most demanding torque. This is my first rim designed which took a total of 6 hours to print.

The Pros:
This rim cost $1.20 in material and $.34 in electricity
4x rims = $6.16

If you factor my time in you are still looking at only $26.26! for a set of 4

These are for my axial wraith that will be revived for its return of the Wraithventures videos after a few more modifications.

Future prints:
Mobius or HD808 pan tilt for in the cockpit.
Mud guard plates
Battery Trays
High center recovery system
Rollover correction system
Dash/Steering wheel/controls
and more!

The Prusa i3 (iteration 3) is the newest and most current 3D Printer design by RepRap Core Developer Prusajr. The i3 incorporates lessons learned from the previous two Prusa designs, as well as other popular modern RepRap designs.

Specifications:

Plastic Parts (exc. Extruder) 26
Non Printed Parts approx. 337

Hey everyone!
Just found a good price for a 7" screen. I have one on the way to make sure it does not blue screen or if it does, that it will be usable for FPV

Hey everyone!

Just found a great deal for those that may be interested in FPV but not want to take the massive leap into FPV with all of the different equipment.

This Quadcopter has an actual 5.8ghz video link, headless mode, and some great features for starting in FPV. Or if you have a kid or friend that is asking about FPV, show them this! they can start without investing $$$ in all kinds of rc equipment! I have not tried this one yet, but I may be reviewing it if there is enough interest in it!

And if you wanted FPV on something else... the camera is modular!

4x 1806 Emax motors
4x 12A simon Series ESC's
CC3d flight controller
Two pair of carbonfiber 5x3 props (now three pair if we get 10 people)
A quick price comparison
The frame goes for $50 http://www.2dogrc.com/2dogrc-juan-di...l#.VAjDT_ldVHU
The motors go for $15-$18 http://www.2dogrc.com/emax-mt1806-22...l#.VAjDuvldVHU

The cc3d goes for $66: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...oducts_id=1555
So in a quick total without shipping it would be: $217 to get them from other places. a quick shipping calculation and it would be: $242
The break down that I was able to work out would be:
3-5 people: $175 shipped USA
5-10 people: $165 shipped USA
10+ people: $155 shipped USA
