Hi again , No not tonight !!! .
Prototyping and learning to drive my home bake cnc router,
There are reasons why polycarbonate is not a recomended material for small cnc routers , its tough and melts back on to its self if the wrong feeds speeds and bits are used. and it is expensive . In past builds i used what i thought was polycarbonate (cast acrylic ) sold as sun tuff in our warehouse style hardware stores. But this time i got the real deal from a local specalist , and it is a whole diferent animal.
Any how the combo of carbon arms and pc body is going to be interesting . Feels stif enough but i do not know how it will handle the vibes . I will update this post when i have discharged a few lipos . Also will post a raw maiden on default config with my thoughts,
Cheers

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
