This is the ANTI-menu. It's just here to stop the page falling over when I put in menu items.
And because Loki hasn't given me the title bar image for this side yet.

ALL HAIL ZOGRIM!

My categories weren't displaying right but something seems wrong with calling.. '$cats = trim($cats, ", ");'

One should not make a habit of trimming cats.

So I need to learn to fly RC stuff before I crash and kill the (now) quite expensive hexacopter. My solution is to take scraps that I had lying around and make a new, cheap, quadcopter.
This is my second day working on it and I'm almost finished. I just need to drill the aluminium motor mounts (but I shouldn't do that at home at 11pm).
Here are some WIP photos anyway:





Total weight is going to be less than 400g.
KK multirotor board will be the flight control.
29.5x26mm 2800kv Brushless Outrunner Motor x4
Turnigy 800mAh 2S 20C Lipo Pack x3 (using one at a time).
TURNIGY Plush 6A /.8bec/6g Speed Controller
FPV camera is a 'china special' ebay deal (cost about $8).
The frame is balsa and the motor mounts are aluminium.

I got to babysit a pair of kittens for the weekend (Josie and Gypsy). Mayhem ensues:

We've set up a workstation in the cabinet and I'm playing minecraft on a 2 meter screen to make sure the machine doesn't overheat.

Those are some big blocks..

A nice day for a bike ride on my new(ish) bike with a couple of friends.

I am just testing uploading to youtube and embedding videos.

Most of the landing gear is complete. Tomorrow I mount the video transmitter. After that there is only some carbon fiber rods to put beneath the floating carriage and it's complete.

Oh yeah, it has the camera mounted now too.




Next step... learning to fly it :P
