Thanks for the input guys. I learned back in the day's of glow trainers w/o buddy boxes.

I'm going to recommend a cheap sim and then something EPP.

I've done it with a Barnes and Noble Nook Color to turn it into a full Android tablet vs. the limited functionality device it ships as.
Thanks for the explanation. I had to double read that the first time i heard it on here.

As Wamsy said, the Australian meaning had me wandering what you guys were doing to your devices over there

Cool video. Looks like everyone was having a great time. Where the hard hats for the combat flyers or were they a costume? Looked like they meant to dress up as the village people and then all showed up as the construction worker.

Techies....
I have a question for you.
I am planning on making a night flyer out of my slick, but am NOT gonna pay $120 for the Andromeda kit.

I have 8 10watt 140 degree LEDS that I can get for 30 bucks.
I need a driver now. Somthing about 100 watts? (technically 80?)
So would this work: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-DC-5-32V-...item231f279c0d
Or would this be fine: http://www.ebay.com/itm/10W-high-Pow...item3ccb592ecf
Or should I get 8 of the small ones?

The LEDS Im gettting are: http://www.ebay.com/itm/380491266498

I did my first threading on the lathe today. I'm quite proud.

External threads were on the lathe and internal threads were with a hand tap and they fit together like they are supposed to.
