Copy that Jeremy. Thanks for being honest. I'm really not expecting to sell a bunch of these. At this point, I just want to finish what I've started. If I sell a few also; GREAT! You are right about...

RE: 1/6th A-6 Intruder Scratch Build

Love the build! A Joe2006 is a great machine. I love seeing the CAD -> CNC -> RC process. The swarf will become a problem during long cutting runs. Best thing I ever did for my machine is buying a...

RE: Kingcat-Like Design and Build

Not yet. I put all of my projects on hold until the CNC machine is done.

PS. If you think the flanker was cool you should see what I'm going to build after it's done ;) .
