    Hi, long time lurker here, but I have the "building bug" and a bunch of electronics left over from an old quad. The reason I am reaching out is: I have been having a heck of time finding plans for that setup. If any one out there has any experience with this please let me know! Thanks to all!

    CNC drawing problems

    Use a CNC machine as a plotter to draw Flite Test plans directly to the foam sheets.

Cad see's all this extra info as vectors and wants...
