Excellent observation! I never thought about that but it certainly is something to consider.

All I can find on servocity (that's my go to place for servos) is the idle and no load operating operating amperage. That doesn't do much good if you are really trying to learn/know what that servo is doing in flight.

I dropped a thread in the electric plane forum and no one can seem to find any servo data either and there has been close to 500 views. That's a lot of manpower searching for the same thing.

It's just not out there.

What was the small battery powered 3D printer that was mentioned in the latest ATTF episode?

Was it the leapfrog then? I looked at those links before and neither looked like the right one

Stopping in to say what a great time it is "hanging out" on the live chat and after show of TheCrashCast. Good times. If you have never done so give it a try one Wed night. It's pretty entertaining.

What happened to ReadyToFly Quads? When I was a regular listener to TheCrashCast, Mike and the gang always talked so highly about them. Now I see in the vendor area they are getting trashed?

What gives?

It has to do with shipping time, to keep prices low he is a one man show which leads to slow response and shipping. Between the crashcast and his spot light on Flitetest his business blew up

Oh OK, thanks. So there are some impatient people in the vendor forum but now they have to harass him because they waited too long for their quads?

He is getting better. I put in an order last Sunday and received it on Friday. Though i keep it simple and don't have him do soldering on the boards or anything.

Yes, he really should cancel that soldering service, or at least charge enough that he can hire someone to do it for him.
