Default Designing RC products for Hobbyist

Hey everyone,<o></o>

<o></o>

My buddy and I are currently studying electrical engineering at Western Michigan University. In our spare time we like to do electrical projects. We have decided to step into the realm of RC. Our budget is limited, but as students we can sometimes get the university to help out. Does any have possible ideas for a new development in the RC world?<o></o>

A few years ago a buddy and I made our own lipo glo igniters. We pulled un-puffed cells off puffed packs and use them. Now I charge my igniter about twice a year.

I would like to build a better tach than a glo-bee or the like.

I almost wrestled for Western in the 80s.

The easy way to do it is to be a modeler, create the thing you need, and then sell it to others.

I sold a ton of ESCs and PiStix that way.
