Hi everyone,

I've been thinking about a second homemade and decided on an ultralight cps. Post feedback!

Feedback: do it, pics/3-D concepts and images are welcome (see jlspacemarine's thread on SSC).

Yes, I agree with Steelboot, definately go for it. Some possible designs would be nice to take a look at. And is there anthing else you want it to be good at apart from being light and maneuverable? If I was coming up with a whole new design for a homemade I might try to incorporate a few " special features".

Good stuff. Nice and simple. However, is it to scale? I hope not, because that reservoir looks like it couldn't fill the PC. Unless it has a backpack attatchment?

Not to scale. :)

I might take off the pc case for weight.

Without a PC case, the PC will simply dangle around and you need a way to "catch" it. I made the big mistake of not using a case for my CPH and I can't get one on now since it's too late. It's possible to integrate the res and the PC case to save on room (like the Vindicator), but your res will need to be well ventilated whilst preventing air from leaving.
