So make sure you have a clear 10m diameter launch site when you kick off as it could potentially land anywhere in that circle.

It's also effected by beer and mates

Well you'd need to get your own projector. Bulbs are pricy and LED isn't bright enough. So there's a nasty running cost involved. The resin (when compared with ABS) is extremely pricy. The build space is great. The resolution is outstanding, way above what you could achieve with an ABS addative extrusion printer. The parts wouldn't quite be as tough. And the parts would probably be quite heavy in comparison with ABS. With the resolution I've got (0.15mm or 150 microns), the materials are cheap enough and there's plenty of choice (PLA for zero shrinkage and a green statement. Plus it's semi translucent. ABS for strength, every colour under the sun including glow in the dark blue and green, metallic colours too. Nylon for flexibility and smooth wearing parts). The running costs are fairly low. Regular maintance takes 10 mins. I honestly couldn't be happier with my one.

Get yourself either an UP! Plus (not the mini) or the eventorbot.

[QUOTE=999vertigo;24033934]Sorry i`m asking but why you did not interrupt the RTH procedure when you see that was out of Home location on the descent phase.


We were in the field behind my house and I said, i can send it back home by flicking this switch. Looking at it it looked like it was over the garden. But it wasn't.

Lesson learned

You know you can take it out of RTH

This is how it should be. Three RTH on the bounce and very accurate

Naza GPS RTH first tests (9 min 34 sec)

I just ordered a RepRap Huxley
Ugliest SOB I have ever seen but Mitch is having great success and it's bloody cheap.
Thought it would be a good starting point.
Plus it will fit in a suitcase (disassembled) when i Finally bugger off to the US.

That terrible? =/
Tempted to get one whilst saving up for the Naza, something to play with =]

Ordered the SK450 frame, (mainly for the Dead Cat conversion when it's back in stock!)
Turned the Q450 into LOS and experiment frame =] Oh and added the traditional take-away tub cover! Although designing a fancy one tonight =]
Might even dig out the fiberglass cloth/resin!

I've bought a Crius aio 1.1, supposed to have a stronger USB port. Not finished building anything to put it in yet though...
