That WTF Moment

By   /  February 20, 2018  /  Drones  /  No Comments

Johnny Schaer (Johnny FPV) is one of the top drone pilots in the world.  He may not be the first to do a particular trick, but he damn sure does it with style.  He calls the style, “juicy”.  I call it amazing.

By   /  February 19, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

Almost halfway to the finish line folks.  Incidentally, I’m a little over halfway to my target weight of 220 lbs, though I’m not sure if I can make it with just 47 days to go.

REVIEW: Onslaught: The Repulse Chronicles, Book One

By   /  February 11, 2018  /  Reviews  /  2 Comments

One of my favorite indie authors, Chris James, blends science fiction and history in this futuristic prelude to a world war.  The story works on many levels, from a political/military drama to a wondrous blend of technology that many sci-fi lovers will no doubt enjoy.  Onslaught: The Repulse Chronicles, Book One captures the imagination and […]

By   /  February 9, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

Today is the day of our first official weigh in.  Our judge would not tell us who’s in the lead, or even by how much (but I think it’s me).  We’ll see at the 90 day mark.  Today though…

Emax BabyHawk R – Maiden Flight

By   /  February 4, 2018  /  YouTube  /  No Comments

This thing is a blast to fly! I only had three batteries for it, and I can tell you that wasn’t enough. It has WAY too much power to fly inside, but this little guy is a real hawk outdoors. It’s as nimble as you would expect without being ‘floaty’.

Diet Day 28 of 90

By   /  February 4, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

It’s been a rough month.  This flu season is turning out to be one of the worst in modern history.  The flu seems particularly contagious this year.  Normally I just drink a glass of OJ if I start feeling sick and I’m good to go.  Not this year.  The bug this year wants to linger, […]

New Drone Build – REVERB – Does Not End Well.

By   /  February 3, 2018  /  YouTube  /  No Comments

  This is the quad I intended on building at Kwad Camp, but I got sick four hours into the first day and ended up back in the hotel room for the next two days. The flu this year is the worst I’ve experienced in a long time. I finally put this quad together last […]

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.
