Unhappy End of the journey

Very sad but reality needed to set in that I just haven't the time or resources to keep developing the twin engine mini.

Going to put it up for sale in the near future as a whole initially (in case some other complete nutter wants to keep going, may try adverts in US and Japan as they seem to like extreme nutter stuff) but more likely will be dismantled for bits when I get bored of waiting for any interest as it will probably be out of sensible price ranges for most due to the amount of doubled up expensive items

Will still be keeping a watch around the forum to assist anyone with questions I can help answer though and thanks for all the help and support from other members posts and answers along the fairly long journey that started back in 2004.

Cheers,
Mike

Mike, I clicked through to your website and reminded myself the work you put in on this, but also that you had very clear objectives - and smashed all of them! I hope someone keeps your creation alive, but whatever happens I think you can be very proud of what you achieved
