    That looks very nice! will you be basing your firmware on the code already available?
    I was thinking about making a flightboard, if you board works with gimbals and such then I might be interested :)

    i just took the wrapping off my ESCs and they have pads for programming it! win! gunna put Simonk Firmware on them :)

    So flashing went successfully, they're much better with the new firmware and the throttle works properly.

    I kinda almost finished my new arm,

    but as you can tell it's unfinished,
    I had a little problem with it in the CNC. a structural issue that I'll learn from on the next model!

    Each side takes me about 5-6 minutes to do, but changing the tools and re-finding zero can take ages. I need to develop a manufacturing process :) and what order I do operations in.

    It would be easy to make with a rotary tale and tailstock, but not really worth getting one for just these parts. Have you done any analysis to see if they're strong enough?

    I can stand on it without it deforming and I weight 90kgs, I think they'll be strong enough :)

    and I was thinking this would be easier with a 4th axis.

    It was desined around the Multiwii 2 code and has extra pins broken out for gimbal usage etc :) I'll dig one out and take a photo for you :)

    Arms are looking good now, I'm not patient enough to make them, I bend too many :D
