i just built my first power supply ever. always used a 12 volt battery in my garage. only took about an hour to set it up cleanly in a old toolbox with 2 chargers on it and didnt cost a penny. used a 12volt auto bulb instead of a load resistor works great

I just got one of these for when I travel from ebay (Toshiba 15V 6A power supply).

John, some pice of the new H Quad. As you expected the other one had too much twist.
This one is like a rock. 700mm diagonal mtr to mtr.
Completed at 850grams without battery.

It looks really tidy and low drag. I like it. should be very stable at that size
Are you back on your feet ?
When do you plan to finish it ?

Yep well and truly up and about thanks. Back to work next week though.

Sorry for posting the quad thing here but I know a couple of you fly them.
It flies well. I will post some video shortly.
The box section is from bunnings. The arms could easily be made from the 16 x 1 aluminium tube that Bunnings also stock.
Would be easier than the cf to work with.
@John, if you would like to make one of this design I will send you some motor mounts and clamps etc for the tube.
Just let me know what motors you are using.
