    Not sure where you're located but most places like Home Depot, Lowes, local hardware stores, Harbor Freight, etc. should have something you'll like. I've got a two headed light on a stand from Sears...

    I'd never buy a helmet again without replaceable batteries, you end up with a disposable helmet. I picked up one of the cheap Harbor Freight units years ago that had the solar panel on it. It also...

    Hi Mark, Hey you know for the most part we like your stuff. These pedal issues just keep surfacing from time to time so I'm guessing that I'm not the only one that didn't do a thorough enough job...

    I should know better than to get involved with a foot pedal discussion after starting up the one on my 200 DX a couple of months ago but what the heck. I was curious and took a look at the 185...

    I've got a 200 and the fan starts when I flip it on, I'm assuming yours is the same. Based on what I've read in other posts that's the way they're set up. Keeps it nice and cool but it is a bit...

    Most of the inexpensive little hobby servos I've used spec somewhere in the 3.7-6v range. You could use one of those 5v three terminal regulators (they run about $1 around here) to knock down your...

    You could try Arc-Zone. They've got all the dinse connectors and some adapters on their web site. They claim if you don't see it, call them. I did see some dinse adapters that used a short length...
