Re: Kronos Flyer Series

On the Futaba radio do you mean 8FG? For the radio you want a mode 2 radio as its just easyer to fly a quad. A mode 1 will work but the controls will be layed out different. On the Naza rapid flashing amber lights mean that it is in failsafe mode. A setting off on the NAZA or radio can cause this. M...

Re: 3D Printer Series

If money is not object and you can live with the small build area I would go with the Afinia printer. It prodces the most acurate parts I have ever seen. This includes printers not included in this series. If you cant afford the $1600 for the Afinia, look at the solidoodle 2 Pro. With some tuning yo...

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

I will eventually sell a mount for the Hero2. But its designed for the isolation platform. If you are not using an isolation platform your best bet will be to use an actual Hero mount.

Re: 3D Printer Series

I just ordered a MakerGear M2 kit.

Once the kit arrives I will post a few highlights in the series, but will provide detailed build notes on my website at:
http://www.kronosrobotics.com

I went through the instructions on the web site. They are not step-by-step, but look doable.
