Steve’s MS-22

Finally, check out this talk I gave about the calibration during the Exploding Shed workshop.

It takes about 1-2 hours to build the full DIY kit. If you’re building from a PCB/panel set, you should expect to have many more hours of fun. Calibration takes about 20-60 minutes.

Whoever said build guides should be boring?
