Re: Sky-120 by Tony Nijhuis

I vote for Spektrum radio, I took a 30 something year break and everything had changed ! Back then servos came 2 flavours, for any given stick movement there were clockwise an anticlockwise ones, if something moved the wrong way then you swapped the servo for the other type.

Re: Need help with design - electronics

I vote for LEDs or fiber optic from one master bulb or LED. If you really want to use traditional bulbs then the voltages that you looking for in your post are easy to deal with as regulators are available in 9 and 5 volt flavor, a 3s lipo will give you the 12 volts and power the other regulators.

We have all sorts of bending equipment at work, but that small bend radius on the inside makes it very difficult as the back of the bend has to stretch a lot and the inside of the bend tends to squash. Could you do a 45 de...
