Step by steps and matching that up with vid times is really ott. I feel like i could build one!
Yeah I watch a few U.S. youtube channels where the presenters adopt a "nice guy" persona that doesnt feel very genuine. So its refreshing to watch Timmy and see the real thing.
Re the build - yeah that was a huge effort - all that sanding would have broken a lesser man. The trouble shooting and time spent, give a well rounded view of the effort involved in taking on such a project. Watching his excitement on the maiden voyage was a good pay off too
