    of those two - the flying bear.

    It's a solid looking build, as far as I can tell.

    yep - it's NOT an ender 3.
    Presumably the video was funded by creality.

    thermal runaway is just to stop the bed and hotend overheating.

    As far as I can gather the smoke appeared as soon as he turned the machine on.
