    To Marc's point, this is indeed shaping up to be an epic year. We are on track to break the record for most people registered. Which means we might also break the record for most waivers signed (that number includes guests and venue staff). Crazy to think back to that weekend in 2007 when...

    Bring them anyway! A few years back Johny Turpin (Bluefang) did an exhibition flight with his 600 electric heli, and Chris Tate (Lazerjock) had his 450 electric with him one year as well. (I think that might have been the year I brought my 200 and my 450 as well...) And Ed Keefe (ekeefe) keeps...

    I have helicopters do those qualify as drones? Mine are big and slow not trick types. In fact I have to see if it still flies. My uncles dogs did a number on it when I landed. Grabbed it right out of the sky. These have 2-3' diameter blades. Bet you could cut the lawn with it. still...

    Ok so I think I solved the cost issue. There is another way to do the same damn thing I just noticed. Just use three regular cubes aligned on their tips in a diagonal. ___ |__|__ .....|__|__ ..........|__|

    It's not custom to each laser head. The only thing I can see being "custom" would potentially be the driving current for the KTP heater which is done when the laser is built and tuned for maximum efficiency. It's surprising how much the laser output can vary depending on the temperature of the...

    That is fantastic information! Not exactly the best news for me, but I would never have known about those features and that the driver would need to be built for that. Would all of the 532's of the same power from CNI have the same driver or would each have been custom made for each module? If they...

    Yes, geometric correction and accurate zoning are deffo 'must haves' for a device that's going to be used outside of the house.

    If it didn't have a heater and thermistor for the KTP, a simple driver would be fine but without a matching driver and or specs to build one, I'm afraid it isn't going to be worth much. Outside of a replacement core for someone's CNI module of the same power, the price drop on everything is...

    So I have been out of the laser hobby for about 4 years now, but I saw on a visit to 'the-other-laser-forum' that 488nm diodes were out. Since that was my favorite wavelength back when I had my Argon, I figured I would try to sell some stuff to make some funds to build a 488nm presentation laser....

    ... two (or up to six ;)) of this 200Watt-beams on a spot of 0.4mm is enough power to melt/fuse metal wires on a metal surface ... and you doesn't need such a stiff/solid frame, as used with metal machining. So my plan is to hook a head with 2 to 6 fibers on my CNC-mill and perform some tests...

    There will be at least one of the v2 prototypes (the one i've been using to make these videos) at SELEM. I'm hoping that Andrew will be able to make it from Montreal. If he does, he'll bring the second v2 prototype. It's rather clunky compared to the production version, but I'll be doing a...
