Would be awesome to see some tricopter action footage from David's new house and surroundings :) Need to get my hands on the next batch to make some of my own too.

David, do you have any social media presence, or are you planning on anything like an FB/Google+ fanpage? Would be really nice as people seem to have a profound interest in all things Windestål.

David's website is http://rcexplorer.se/
and those carbon fiber booms on his new tricopter are beautiful,
and his tilt mechanism is awesome (and the price is fantastic).
The KK2 board he is talking about with the 1.6++ firmware is available from ReadyToFlyQuads

Hear is a link to You Tube vid of David flying a DLG. I guess its in Sweden cause he is speaking Swedish.(there is subtitles) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svRIi_cgtJE
I really want to see the Yak 52 ride Sounds fun. I got dizzy just riding in a plane sim!

Ultimaker is pretty high-end for hobbyist printers. If you need a cheap, but nice 3D printer, check out Printrbot simple metal. It's really competitively priced as a kit, only $539! http://printrbot.com/shop/simple-metal-kit/
