  • I wish I could find one of those filament recycling machines for cheap, but otherwise right now mine go to the scrap heap.

      I know, I've researched that a bit and even with that the recycled filament is not without air gaps, impurities, etc. Scraping it on Recycle Days seems the best thing, then I can quit thinking about it. We tried, huh. Just seems a bit wasteful even though a new roll is less than $25. LOL

  • Haha yes indeed!

    • Here are the L-39's drum brakes. They work great!

      I'm hoping to finish up the build over the next few days. Pending weather hope for a maiden next weekend. AUW is about 7.9kg

        • Mobius camera was acting up and cut out both times partway into the filming, but here are some onboard videos of the maiden and the second flight.

            • Thanks! I'm working now on final detail bits and getting ready for paint. Printing some vacuum forming plus for the canopy as well.

              I also want to do a thrust test to check if my ESC settings can be improved. Right now I have it on auto timing.

                • Been loving printed 16th scale things to match the tanks. Found this Willy's file and at 16 scale it fit perfectly on my ender 3 bed.

                      I hand painted them! Looks better from far than up close
