Bullies and Trolls

By   /  January 30, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

I lost my temper recently, and that hasn’t happened for a very long time.  It actually took me by surprise as I’ve grown quite mellow over the years.  In fact, the last time I can remember being that angry was in high school.  Bullies, both then and now, set me off with a short fuse.  […]

To Build a Drone

By   /  January 23, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

 I’m off to Kwad Camp in a few days, so the deadline to get a quad or two built before I leave is fast approaching.  Also, I’m still trying to setup my office.  So many boxes, so little time.  Though, I have managed to create a bit more workspace to actually do, you know, work.

Diet Day 14 of 90

By   /  January 21, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

It’s unofficial weekly weigh in time (not the official scales we’re using for the bet).  Starting weight was 262.4 (on the official scale) and last week I dropped to 251.5.  This week the scale is showing 245 lbs even (my old scale only weighs in half pound increments).  Total weight lost thus far, 17.4 lbs.

This is the first ‘small’ drone I’ve actually liked.  It’s not as small as the Tiny Whoop, but it can do acro better. -Rush

Diet Day 7 of 90

By   /  January 15, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

The (unofficial) weight on Diet Day 7 is 251.5 lbs.  Again, this was on my personal scale, not the official scale we are using.  The next weigh in on that scale is 3 weeks away.  With that said, my total weight lost the first week is 10.9 lbs.

Armattan Chameleon vs Power Line

By   /  January 14, 2018  /  YouTube  /  No Comments

I took the Chameleon out for the second time after adjusting the rates and the hang time on this drone kept throwing me off. I’m so used to drones falling fast and hard when I let off the throttle, but I swear this thing seemed to have wings. Sadly, I must have clipped one of […]
