Re: HPR X Wing - T70

So the plan with the nose weight is to 3D print the shape of weight, this will be used to make a clay mould that I can fill with molten lead. So far I printed out the shape and I estimate I can make a weight up to about 200g. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49950010638_b000223285_c.jpg Nose Weig...

Electronic flight cards

There’s an interesting discussion going on at TRF with regards to going to electronic flight cards.

Altimeter wiring is complete. This was done in a similar style to the Purple Parrot, with a mini header for the altimeter power and an additional twin terminal block for the positive power to the ematches.
