    looking for a rangefinder

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm currently trying to track down a source for a range finder stalk and head. Pretty much, I have a head but it's solid and I would like to add lights to it.

    overall, I'm wanting to create a motorized, remote triggered rangefinder. I'm pretty new to this and am not 100 percent on what I need but have a pretty good idea as to what i want to do. I want to go the way of the micro rc car mod to keep costs down. I've gotten some pm's from other board members that offer kits and I appreciate it but I need to go more low cost. ultimately, I'm trying to find a hollow range stock so i can run a wire up it for the lights so I can hopefully use the rangefinder head I already have rather than buying a hollow one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    For the most affordable I'd buy a ASOK rangefinder kit and salamanderkings LEDs for the topper. Terminal fettler if you want to spend more for accuracy and quality.

    If the RF topper you have is resin, just hollow it out with a dremel

    Bobamaker does hollow stalks and heads... (As well as hollow aluminium stalks)


    Couldn't say who's more 'budget friendly', though.

    Out of the RFs listed above, the Asok piece is probably the cheapest but I don't know for sure.

    F4R, how much in size does the Asok differ from the BM and he TF RFs? I am designing a light kit that should fit the Asok but I don't know what the size of the other ones are. And which would be more popular a self contained unit or one that needs a hollow stalk?

    I print them in ABS plastic, if you are interested. I can make them to an exact size, there is a sale thread over on MMCC

    I sell the entire thing including a hollow RF and base printed in transparent plastic for $20 plus shipping
