|Thread: Gardan GY 20 MINICAB|
A French plan HERE. I am ashamed to say I have one under construction for the last 5 years.....
At some time the designer Laurent Buissyne also sold a CD with an illustrated set of building instructions.
|Thread: Wireless Copilot - mAh telemetry|
Have a look at the Unisens-E multiple telemetry sensor, including battery capacity used. Suitable for a number of current Tx/Rx systems.
(information in German, iirc there is also an English version, but I cannot find it right now)
Edit: English manual HERE.

All about LEDs in series/parallel in the September issue of RCM&E.
|Thread: i/c wiring diagram|
Can be seen HERE on the Dutch forum.
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
I passed the drawing and the building instructions on to Rob at www.RBCkits.com , who has now kitted it and is selling the kit online.

RBC don't seem to list the Red Eagle now
Parts kit (no drawing) I would suggest to mail them and ask for the extra cost of adding the drawing.

|Thread: HK KK-1.x Flight Controller manual?|
Thanks Bob! I have sent you a PM. I must confess that the urge to experiment has faded somewhat, but I am still interested in the manual.
On request, I am posting the front and side views that my design was based on:
|Thread: Unisens-E Graupner telemetry sensor|
I made up my MPX receiver update cable like so:
When the MPX cable works with the Unisense, this should work too I guess.

|Thread: Which CAD software|
True, but you will have to pay extra for new versions, i.e. the upcoming 6.xx for Mac. I plan on staying with 5.xx (still being upgraded regularly at present), since it fulfills all my needs.
To further make the case for Rhino: there is an excellent forum where you will find plenty of help and guidance by both experienced users and the people behind McNeel. A bunch of friendly guys who will help you out when you get stuck. And you will learn from the answers to other's questions, I know I still do.
But as others have said, you will have to be prepared to put some effort and time in learning to use any package, and I would even say you will have to treat it as a separate hobby altogether, and not only as a means to facilitate your modeling.

I am a fan of McNeel's Rhinoceros. It is certainly not for free, but you can download a full version on trial for 90 days. After that you have to pay for a license since it stops saving your designs. The Mac version is slightly less developed than the PC version (and therefore cheaper), but is still way more capable than the average modeler needs. We are talking hundreds of euros/pounds though (unlimited license duration).
|Thread: Lidl XL Glider|
He is on the Dutch forum, claiming it's for a family gathering. He had to travel to 6 or 7 Lidl stores to get them.....
I made him aware of this forum thread, let's see what comes out of it.

|Thread: Verhees Delta|
No, I did not. I am happy with the way it flies on a 1.5 mAh battery and 60 g extra ballast directly behind the motor.

The V-Deltas are coming! Keep an eye out for the August issue of RCM&E.
And before anyone asks; this picture is 'shopped. They are actual flying shots of Rob's and mine, but we never got them that close in front of the camera, let alone both in focus........

|Thread: Cura 2.5.0|
Are you sure you are downloading .stl files from Thingyverse? Judging by the "Convert Image"-interface Cura is in some form of Photo-etching mode, probably because you have loaded a .jpg or .tiff file.
Edit: I checked by loading a .jpg file with Cura and I am getting similar results, so that must be it.

|Thread: I think i have found my next build project|
I guess I could update my flea project (a HM16) to that.
|Thread: Verhees Delta|
Bart Verhees treated us on an unannounced flyby of our model flying field, very impressive! The shape is unmistakeable, and I was alerted by my fellow club members who started to shout: "hey, that is that thing that Max designed a model of!"
|Thread: FrSky Taranis - user chat|
Ah. I will dig up my copy of that and have a read. Thanks Andy.
I may have missed that, but I am not sure if we are talking about the same document. In the "Open TX Getting Started" document it reads on page 3: "
In your user area on your computer create a folder called Taranis. Then connect the Taranis to your computer with the bootloader enabled. – See “How to connect your transmi er to a computer” in part 3, “How to”. Once connected 2 new folders can be seen. One will contain just 2 les, EEPROM and FIRMWARE. Do not touch these! However, copy the other folder, with all its subfolders to your newly created Taranis folder on your computer, and rename this folder SD Card. We are now ready to start thinking about the OpenTX approach and begin to see how it works. "
I do not see a page 100 or 101 in any of the Martin Phillips documents?
Yes! Thanks Bob!
