I did not notice that, no. I would have if Brian had posted it though...

Too bad, I could have saved a penny!

Actually guys, not sure if that's accurate - shipping is free from shop.tinyrc.com but I don't think it is from Kenon - so you could have saved hundreds of times more!

Shipping is definitely NOT free from Kenon, and there's also that nasty CA state tax. If only I'd known sooner...

Brian,

Another question for you: I remember reading somewhere (here? dunno...) that it's a good idea to coat the exposed side edges of the chassis plates with some material to inhibit cracking and increase durability.

What should I use for that? Would like to do it before I begin assembly... Thanks for the help,

ianc

Ian, sand the edges with fine grit sandpaper (at least 600) and then use a q-tip to apply superglue all around the edges. This is mostly important on the big chassis pieces (main plate, motor mount, etc) in order to prevent premature de-lamination of the cf.

Cristian got to it first. I'll put this up in the FAQ for future reference.
