I started building FC two months back and unfortunately was not able to document the last two months due to tight schedules. Here is the first post and i will be posting updates as find time.
Part sourcing has been the major challenge we have faced, Its extremely difficult to find parts here in India and ordering from US is twice as costly and time taking so we had to hack a lot in sourcing. We spent a lot of time in exploring local market (Lamington Road, Mumbai) for parts and it paid off, literally. We got the price down for some parts (Air pump, Doser pump, Fans, Heating Unit, Submersible pump, Wires, Connectors, Relay, Valves). These costed us less than 200$ when sourced through local market.
For frame we decided to go with building our own using steel frames, getting the one from BOM was costing way too much and also it takes two weeks to ship to India and if it gets stuck in customs its a painful process to get it out and costs money.
It is not as neat as the original one but shall work for now.
