  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 […]

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.

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.

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.

Lost and Found, Part 2

By   /  January 12, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

I’ve lost a few drones since starting this hobby a year ago.  In every case the reason for the lost drone was pilot error.  The most recent example occured a few weeks ago, right before Christmas.  There is a YouTube post about it here, “Lost and Found“. Honestly, I never expected to see the drone […]
