Using a Toshiba FlashAir Wi-Fi SD flash memory card in your 3D printer is a cool way to wirelessly transfer g-code files. I recently installed a 8GB card in my daVinci 1.0 (which had been upgraded with repetier firmware). I configured the FlashAir to operate in client mode and had success without any hassle. Any web browser can be used to upload files (no special software required). But my luck ran out when I tried to use the FlashAir in my Geeetech i3 Prusa printer (which uses Marlin RepRap firmware). I could read/write files to it in the usual way, but it refused to establis

EDIT June-03-2015 / UPDATE: Had my first flights with the prototype DiY 3D Printed FPV Goggles and it was awesome. Fantastic image quality, better than anything I've flown with before. The huge 70° field of view (FOV) is incredible. Here's a 3D rendering of the DiY goggles: The 3D printer STL files and build instructions are published here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2429042 THE PROJECT BLOG STARTS HERE: Over the years I've made several DiY FPV goggles using small LCD monitors. Material choices have been cardboard, foam board, duct tape, snow ski goggles, and so on.
