  • Stub-Axle Adjustments

    Even before I’ve had a full set of parts for the prototype and I’m already making improvements… Almost as soon as I’d frozen the design for the M0.1 Atomic Duck, I realised that it needed a slight adjustment to the front axle mounts to make the mounting more secure. In...

  • International Royal Mail Shipping from OpenCart

    I found the problem with the international shipping, have corrected it and, in addition, upgraded the logic for shipping selection in the module to remove some unnecessary options at the checkout. it turns out that the royal mail module error was a duplicated array name in the catalog/model/shipping/royal_mail.php file. $quote_data['airsure']...

  • When Projects Hit Problems

    I’m still undergoing a delay with having a prototype kit manufactured. It’s a bit of a disappointment when each promise of a quote for parts turns out to be empty. I know part of the problem is the small scale of the production I’m looking at – 10 kits batched...
