3d printing is still like the solder-it-yourself days of R/C. You are buying a project not a product. 3D printing is cool, but still mostly a PITA. (i'm on my 3rd printer, and will be getting more!)....

Thanks. I'll try swapping motor leads. Bizzare that its at a right angle rather than just forward/backwards flipped. Can't quite get my head around it. On the sound system, I'm all good there. I...

ok, aside that you don't like, it a burned mosfet does not result in having all the controls mixed up. I looked at other stuff, and for what I have now, its good enough for $30 for the Rx/Tx and...

Looks good, but as an engineer, you've just thrown down the gauntlet lol. Should be pretty simple. Port a line from the smoker to where the airsoft gun pulls in air when charging, and bingo.. once I...
