Been awhile since I've logged in, sorry guys.
Charles has always helped me out in the past with hacks, builds, etc but I'm not seeing him visiting the forums currently, probably health issues are the reason.
At any rate I have a friend who has three unhacked S600 cameras and he would like them put in builds.
The build I did for him was a fasthack build with external D batteries and he would like to have three builds done the same.

Not knowing Charles' condition this is an opportunity for one of the members who can  possibly help this gentleman out.....Frank is his name and I gave him the DIY website info so hopefully he will registering soon.
Meanwhile if anyone has any suggestions or interest in doing the new builds for him please respond here.

Thanks Ken, hopefully he will have some input on this thread if he sees it.
I know he would do a great job if he's interested.

Yup, I will do the builds. All I need is the specifics on exactly what he wants such as the case brand and size, servo or hardwired, case mount or pipe through, painted case or 3D camo, etc. A few photos of the build he has already would be a great help also if he wants the new builds done pretty much the same. Send the info to my email at ralph45@cableone.net and I will get him a price quote.

I'll be trying to contact him today and forward the information, he'll be glad to hear the news  !   [smile]
The build I did for him was with a fasthack modified 600 with the old Yeti board controlled by a nine volt, with a pair of D's for externals. If I recall correctly it was just a painted camo Otterbox 3000 case with pipethru but I know none of that stuff is an option anymore so I'll leave that for you two to work out.
The only thing I am positive about is the fasthack option and D externals, those will probably be a must.

Thanks Chris, lots of stuff going on since last January, dual knee replacements, rheumatoid arthritis in both hands, and all the other stuff that is associated with the aging process, but..........you gotta accept the limitations and do what you can while you can, like it or not.

My goal during knee rehab was to be able to use my ladderstands during archery season, that goal was realized and I managed to arrow a couple of nice bucks in early November. The hand issues will more than likely remain with me for the rest of my life, meds help but my building days are a thing of the past, just can't do it any more.

Welcome to the forum Frankie. Wealth of knowledge here. Enjoy your builds when completed.

Beautiful buck Don. Perhaps your hands won’t allow you to build cams not more but man you sure can shoot some dandie deer. Congrats.

Nice bucks Don!  Sorry to hear about the hands, really wish we were all closer.  There's a wealth of knowledge that you guys have that I don't, but my hands are still working.  Would be great to have a few Friday or Saturday evening sessions, with me and Jon working the cams and Charles Ralph and you guiding the way.  Then Woody John and Mike bringing in the security and camo.   (Since Jon doesn't drink he's invited so I have a designated driver [rofl][rofl][rofl] )

The knees gotta feel better though! 

(Now all we need is a Bruce sighting!)
