Interesting Samuel,

I wonder how precise they are (you know gimbals are real close tolerances)? I also wonder how many parts you have to buy in order to get good pricing.

Have you used them?

Thanks!

Tery

I just read an article about them in Wired magazine. I have not used them personaly yet. You can download the software for free and when you design something it will calculate the price for you.
