Re: Hovercraft B/C

Thank you Adi1008 . So if I can use a voltmeter to calibrate, can it stay on the craft? Is it not considered an integrated circuit? They're fairly specific about which types of electrical components are allowed on our devices this year. I'm not familiar off the top of my head with which components ...

Re: Hovercraft B/C-shielding question

However I do have a skirt that prevents any parts of the propellor from flying out. Is this ok or do I need to put metal mesh sh...
