    G'day!

    Another n00b, a mate sent me this way to look at a breather for sale and, the more I poke around, the more I like what I see.

    Been diving about 10 years, 500 something dives in, PADI instructor and a n00b to the wonderful world of tech.

    Our local uni dive club is starting to push a little further offshore these days and we've hit the limits of air, so time to go for trimix. I figure it won't take long to pay off the breather given the cost of He these days.

    As an electronics/software engineer by trade with a few medical respiratory monitoring projects under my belt and an avid shed tinkerer I've got to admit the homebrew section has an unholy attraction for me. :)

    Mini ft rEvo RMS

    only rEvo..

    Re: G'day!

    Hi Mate,
    Theres lots of stuff in Perth / Aus to with good support.
    Dolphin Scuba has Posieden but as you said trimix the upgrade for that isnt available yet.
    There is the pathfinder in rockingham Scubanautics.
    Alot of my mates have Inspo and have no problem ordering parts not sure of the training.
    A few of us including myself have rEvo with exelent support in melbourne with training also. Or you could go to Bali which for us in Perth can be very cheap like 250 return.
    Happy hunting.
