Spent what seemed like ages (probably only 1/2 hour or so) patiently boring a 0.8mm hole about a cm into my canopy rod, bang down the middle. Another hole into the main frame only took about 10 minutes, so good to go. Couldn't find a pin of the right thickness, but managed to dig up a 0.9mm paperclip, so just a case of reboring the holes to size. What happens? Right, the 0.9mm drill bit busts off flush with the end of the rod, so no chance of getting it back out!!
Oh well, at least my white clone arrived from BG today by way of consolation, a little less than 2 weeks after placing the order
Might just rest up the yellow bird for a while and order a couple of main frames after all. The msr paddles and Helios 100 main motors should be arriving soon, so that should be enough to keep my busy for a while
