This Week's Progress:
This week I worked a lot on the GNS 530 and 430. It's insane how much work, effort and learning go into these. I enjoy making them though.
Tip of the Week:
This week's tip is to use a small work vice if soldering a lot of components
Using a small electronics work vice can be more efficient and effective than using helping hands, as it keeps components in place better than traditional helping hands. These also have a larger capacity and can do multiple connections at once. I've used the PanaVise 381 and grown to like it, however, there are cheaper options that produce very similar results.
If you would like to submit a tip, please email CaptainBobSim@gmail.com with "Here's a tip" in the subject.
Videos of the Week:
Roger Doger is who got me involved in flight simulation. Here's one of his videos to hopefully spark some imagination.
Video about Altimeter Motive's Laser Cut Panel. Enjoy!
August 7th, 20:30 UTC I will be flying from one airport to another. It will be fun, and I'll let you join probably.
