You know thereís a jodo rocket you can have 3d printed right?  Since one of our clubs most recognizable 3d printer people is down in Oz with you you might be able to hit her up for the jodo rocket.

Just a small update. Finally got around to getting jp beacon light to flash
Haven't uploaded any video to YouTube, just two pics showing on and off. At this stage it only flashes but there's a few other flash rates to look at
I got the kit from diyrc.com, it's the mini flash kit


I'll take more pics in the dark tonight, and if I can get to sit right in beacon mounted to jp

Just remember to have it setup on a dummy so that you can stealth ambush him while heís distracted.

G'day all, spent early morning installing led in the beacon, I bought the flash kit from diyrc.com with a 5mm clear lens red led, I got a red cover for it to give the red light....may play around with a few other coloured led I have around. May not be as bright....I wouldn't mind an orange colour though. The flash kit and battery holder isn't secured in place yet, sourcing a few other greeblies to install, one may be a switch .....or may connect to gauntlet


Also got message from Delta13, my esb ammo belt is ready
