Out With My BETA75S

Didn’t really get a chance to fly for very long. I decided to take my BETA75S outside, and the wind was blowing me all over the place.

New Gantry

I’ve decided that I need a new XY gantry. The old one is fine, if you don’t want to change nozzles. As this is a very basic requirement of this project, I’ve had to come up with a solution to a mechanical problem I have while changing nozzles with the old gantry and carriage.
