The lights are battery operated and it will take 3 strands per logic.
For $15.00 per logic it sure beat the price I paid for mine.
The Vid is short and not that great, But you'll get the idea.
Once I get the Logics finished, I'll post another video.

I painted 1 Booster today, Yeah BIG PROGRESS!!!
Anyway, It's showing some orange peel but I think when it dries it will be better.
I tried to leave the Aluminum showing where it's suppose to show the 1st time,
But it looked terrible, So I clean the booster and painted again. I'll have to hand paint the areas that need to be silver. :(

Here's the A&A mount assy.
Now I'm not sure if this is the way Andy has designed the mount to fit, But this is how it works best for me. After you bolt the ring and circle to the frame , You mount the outer blocking to the frame.
I guess you noticed I got the inner circle mounted wrong, So I'll have to pull it apart and turn the inner circle so the slots Aline correctly. This is a must, But I'm not feeling my best today and wanted to show the mount process.
I'll post more pics about this soon.

I found a flaw and have corrected it and R2 probably weighs about 20lbs. lighter and much stronger at the shoulders.
The satellite motors I was using in the frame only allows for shallow bolts, Even though I tapped them for larger bolts.
So, I removed the Sats. out of my frame and used the A&A shoulder mounts.
There was still allot of shimming inside this area, But I am confident this will hold.
If R2's shoulder bolts would have backed out, I would be back to square one and a damaged R2.
I'll post pics of the change this Sunday and I recommend everyone to stay away from the Sats.
Not only have they failed doing the 2-3-2, They are just not a strong way to mount the legs.
