    Cool, Soon you are so far thinking about the frames.
    I hope this week something turn off. It's hard to do anything after work.

    Hi Vitalius, could I ask what is the closed length of your actuators and what is the extension lenth?

    I Vitalius. Long time since I saw where you where at. I checked your videos. That beast is going well. I hope you are having fun on it.
    I'm looking forward to play Elite on mine, but the platform has not the controllers installed on it, yet...
    Keep on the good work!

    with all the epxoy that you been working with, i been meaning to ask, how do you epoxy your carbon fiber tubes to attach the hiem joints / tie rod ends?

    i worry that epoxy will drip inside the tube..
    if you have a method for this, i would love to hear!

    that is the only thing i have to do with my actuators...

    Hi, I have to search my drawings to answer your question. I need a little time for that. Was not in project for a long time.

    [QUOTE="I am not so good at SketchUp and can not afford it[/QUOTE]
    There is a free version of Sketchup.
    It means Sketchup Make.
    (If I understood you correctly.)
