hi all. in the process of building my own backpack. ... got bits coming in from everywhere.

has anybody else had a go at building a bruce special with the cloverleaf and everything? I would love to see some comparisons with other less experienced guys like myself.(cos i dont think mine will look like his one!)

videos or photos would be awesome.

so far I have the bones of a cloverleaf made with the wrong co ax, but bruce has set me straight there. will post pics of my build as i go.

Yes I have been quiet, which some may class as a blessing :lol:

I will post pics of my new Parkzone Icon A5 that I bought from www.modelflight.com.au a few weeks back. As the weather here has been really crap I have only been able to fly a few times and I limited that to my AXN in case rain spoils the moment (ergo limiting my potential losses).

I will post progress of my Raptor, but until I receive some assistance setting up the FY-31 AP I'm afraid the maiden won't be happening.

Will can you possibly send me pictures of your 31AP wired up? Someone else was going to do it, but alas I'm still waiting :lol:

More soon folks...

Sure thing there Hallmark! I'll get in there in just a few minutes.

EDIT: Alright, damnit I just tried and couldn't get a macro shot, everything is so far out of focus it's worthless. I'll see if I can't some up with something better. :(

Cheers mate, my main issue is with the camera and power connections for the OSD and the AP if you can help with that I'd be much obliged. :D

Hello again all,

Well I have some developments in my build to share with you all. Yes I've been absent of late, but the tumour I had in the frontal lobe took some doing to remove and the recovery was quite long. :| they say I'll be a changed person now so let's see.

Anyway, here goes...

I have received and assembled my Immersionrc 600mw Tx/Rx from Bevrc.com. Let me say their delivery times are the best ever and their prices were better than anyone else I found. The units are great and I have had them connected and working through brick walls three rooms away in my house.

I'm writing this on my iPad so I cannot upload the pictures, but I will when I'm home. I'm having an issue getting the Hornet OSD working, but I'll look at it when I get home from Uni and see what's what.

I hope to maiden in the next week or so now that spring has sprung. More later on.

PS: I'm kidding about the tumour - it was suggested I get a frontal lobotomy but I told my wife to get a life, I like being an asshole!!! :D
