I had a request for some Multiplex so here is a collection of much of their current aircraft. Also there is a Bixler II -- actually it's my bixler II from a photo taken by my wife.

I'll amass the collection in post #1 about the first of August. Until then it's just here all lonesome. Please check my names and bit depth. The zip file below has all of these icons. I tend to get going in a zone and don't remember what I'm even doing.

When I try to download from this or other threads on Taranis my PC just gets stuck with a 'connecting' message in Firefox!

Downloads from other sites does not seem to be a problem however!

Anybody else seeing similar issues?

Cheers

Thanks Scott

Just tried again this morning after re-booting PC - no problems :)

Wow nice thread !!!

Ideas for more Icons:
-Batman Dark Knight Icon
-Bee / Wasp / Hornet
-FPV Quad Frame - Maybe TBS Discovery?
-A camera or Gimbal Icon (Camera Operator Mode)

That would be my wishes :) Guess others would love it too

Thanks Scott !
Great artwork !

Could you tell me how you do it? Is there a special trick for color-reduction or something?
Or can i just take any colored icon / image, render it for the white background, make it black and white and am ready to go?

Greetings from Germany !

Lots of "tricks".
1. Remove the background -- even if it's white leaving only the model.
2. Add a layer behind the model that's pure white.
3. Convert model to B&W but not just by removing color saturation - but with a B&W adjustment that allows different colors to be darker or brighter
4. Darken the bright areas of the model so the "whites" are actually about level 4 of the - 16 shades of grey.
5. sharpen if needed
6. flatten and save as a 4 bit greyscale.

The real "trick" is to make the "whites" of the model darker than the white background because "white" = transparent on screen. I've been working with Photoshop professionally for 20+ years so I have an unfair advantage.

That one really looks spooky to me. I hated the Taranis name when I first heard it. I hated it when I second heard it. However it's sort of growing on me now. It sure beats X9XY9s type names.

Dean would do. In a perfect world I'ld put in my AMA # and phone number.
Dean I can get, but AMA and phone seem to have to be too few pixels for decent readability.

I had them fine on my t9x.

It's just a shame that the name is now also associated to a machine that can cause great destruction :(
