  1. I usually hold the blaster with the other hand. Fits under the glove pretty well. And rest in my hand with the flics without setting them off if I need to. But this is why I’m offering it for others to test the app to get some feedback. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Adding a video demo of how the set up might work with your kit. I have 10 spots available for people who want to beta test this for free.
  3. I’ve been working on this on and off now for about a year. I’ve tested it at several troops and it’s working well. So now it’s time to show you what I've got! ‬It’s basically a soundboard on your phone controlled by unlimited wireless buttons. I’ve created this video to explain how it works. I sped it up a bit so it’s quicker to listen to in case you are wondering why I’m talking so fast! (You can always slow it down in the settings!) If you are interested in testing it and you have an iPhone 5 or later PM your name and email and I’ll send you a link to install the app on your phone. You’ll also need a flic v1 which I can sell you at a discount while my stocks last or you can order via this link. (FYI It's an affiliate link any support much appreciated.) I'll have support for flic v2 some point next year. Click Here to Buy Flic ‪Below are a few hints and tips about using the App if you decide to test it. I'll add more updates once I get some feedback, I'd love to hear what you think of it.
  4. Similar with me. Longer torso proportionally. Plus I’m shorter overall. I ended trimming my shins. Leaving my new thighs as is and I’m probably going to cut the cod and move it up slightly to give a bit of clearance.
  5. Anyone reading this and hoping to trim their thighs watch out. I completely ruined the shape of mine by trimming an equal amount off all the way around the top. I ended up getting some new ones. I’m not sure the best way to do it although troop master’s technique seems a better approach than what I did but I can’t say for sure. Just be careful whatever approach you take. Good luck with your build! I’m surprised you need to trim them with your height. Maybe you have a long torso?

  7. I'm thinking or selling my Jim TKFO kit and Anovos helmet if you would consider that route. I haven't started any work on it so you would need to sand and paint. On the plus side it's basically constructed. Just needs strapping.
  8. How did you go about finding someone to paint it for you? And how much did it cost?
  9. Does the weight of all the electronics at the back pull the helmet back?
  10. Just wanted to get your opinion on strapping material as I have heard two different approaches. Should the material that holds the armour together (the back plate and kidney for example) be nylon webbing or black elastic? I thought nylon webbing but I have heard people say elastic for flexibility. The worry I have is elastic my have too much give and leave extra space between the armour.
  11. I used blu tack which I brought from the uk with me. I'm in Canada now. I got the idea from another thread. It's basically a kind of putty you use to stick posters on the wall. It worked well.
  12. What do you use to trim the thigh cover strip?
  13. The pipe is 7" long but with the caps on it's a bit over 8" as it doesn't fit into the recess of the caps. But it's overall length that matters. Here's my plan. Gonna trim 5mm off each cap (by sanding?) then 10mm off the control panel to bring it down to 120mm. That increases the gap by 10mm on each side. So I trim the pipe by 20mm. Brings the overall length to 190mm with caps on. Gaps will be back to about 15mm each side. Sound good?
  14. Biceps done just need outer cover strips. Looking at forearms now. Also wanted to get started on my TD but wanted to check measurements are ok. CRL says approx length of TD is 7 1/2" is 8" close enough?
