    Default MicroMagic fun and LOTS of noobies questionS

    There you go...

    Began (finally) my MM...

    As I bought some special servos...the servotray didnt fit...so[:-batman] I made one (yeah I did that...took me an hour[:-banghead])


    Now, the big question...how do you make "holes" in it so that I can fit the servos?, I mean without breaking it ...yup, I broke it...so I made actually 2 of them...



    cheers

    Use 2-56 or metric small blind nuts under the servo tray and grind off the edge that would hit the servo. You can always add more material for reinforcement and just use longer mounting screws. Clyde

    You must first dfraw the outline of the servo you are mounting on the base.

    Then drill several holes, big enough that allows you to insert a small saw thru it, within the servo outline.

    With the saw, start sawing until you reach the contour and follow it.

    You might need to saw in several directions, back and forth, up and down to complete the outline.

    See if this helps.

    I drilled lots of 1 mm holes...then with the cutter...sanding a bit...adjusting...sanding.

    Was easy!

    Hi there MM sailors,[:-captain]

    In europe there are loads of MM sailors, in the
    Netherlands alone there are over 1100 registrated MM-boats.
    In Germany there are over 400 registrated boats.
    Take a look at the sites, they are in dutch and german but images will tell the story.

    link for the german site. http://www.micromagic-rc-segeln.de/
    link for the dutch site. http://www.micromagic.nl/

    greetings, Sailsystems

    [:-banghead]<font color="red"> <font size="3">What a shame!</font id="size3"></font id="red">
    Once again model yachties have shot themselves in the foot.[:-cowboy][img]../forum1/images/speech/icon_speech_duh.gif[/img]
    Why o why don`t the Germans and the Dutch get together, with one rule for the good of the <font size="3"><font color="blue">MICROMAGIC</font id="blue"></font id="size3"> class instead of this stupid situation, where a potentual new owner has to make a decision as to which version of the class rules he is going to build and compete under.[:-dunce][img]../forum1/images/speech/icon_speech_sigh.gif[/img]
    Come on guys, get your act together, if you really want your class to grow and prosper internationaly then some tough decisions need to be made, and made quickly.[:-mouse][img]../forum1/images/speech/icon_speech_yeah.gif[/img][img]../forum1/images/speech/icon_speech_ok.gif[/img]

    Do it NOW before it`s too late.
