I thought I’d use a new thread to document a build, from the word go, based off a @pacificmeister’s excellent plans and the info contained on the forum. By documenting it from start to hopefully finish over the next couple of weeks, I hope to help any other new builders, as there’s a wealth of technical information on here. I’m coming at this from someone who did a bit with RC stuff a few years ago, but completely non technical and new to the CAD/printing/mechanics (I’m an anaesthesiologist!).
The build is essentially taken from the parts from the PM CAD build sheet. For other aussies, I’ve had to use ebay and bunnings to supplement the stuff that amazon won’t ship to Australia. I’m using a Sindoh DP200 3D printer to prototype the parts before assembly in PLA, I’ll most likely do the final version in ABS. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks sourcing the parts which have started arriving and I’m keen to get this going before the new year. Haven’t decided on a board yet, and I’m waiting for the foil from alibaba to arrive.
So let’s go!
