Re: SmartPilot X-5 Wheel Drive Unit "Upgrades"?
If my Grandfather was still alive he would relish the idea of copying most of it in some sort of metal.
As a SeaBee he made replacement aircraft, jeep, tank, etc parts from stock and scrap metal out of a mobile machine shop in the Pacific islands during WWII.
He used to piss me off because he wouldn't go to the hardware store to buy even a bolt. He would make just about everything.
That mindset, sadly, is lost.
