Hey folks! Love the videos. I'd like to see a design challenge to see who can get the longest flight time, highest altitude, fastest speed, etc. from a small battery. :)

If I didn't like my name, and I thought I could pull this off... MAYBE.

This was a fun video! Here's something somewhat related that my friend built years ago:

Replace multi-rotor with balloon, and RC with semi-autonomous! :)

Said friend is still in the RC world, as proprietor of Skookum Robotics.

I have to admit, I was worried for a few seconds that an actual human was sitting in the sled. :)

Bruce, please consider moving your difficulties with regulatory bodies to a different, more personal channel. I really enjoy your technical videos and, you know, RC Model Reviews, but the whin^Wrighteous anger about MFNZ is grating. :)

I wrote an answer about webOS on Quora: http://www.quora.com/Is-Java-EE-only-running-on-servers/answer/Alex-Cruise.  

+Matias Duarte, if you have a few minutes, I'd appreciate it if you'd flame any factual errors I've made. :)

This is really cool, my friend did it too: :) http://web.archive.org/web/20071222084818/http://members.shaw.ca/sonde/

The same friend now runs Skookum Robotics.

Yeah, I like +FliteTest, he spent a bunch of time with them over the past couple years, but his visa ran out, he had to go back to Sweden.

My coworker pointed out that if you had to control all the legs individually, you'd have to call it a "triceraQWOPs". :)

We sent our younger kid here for two years and would recommend it to anyone. Loving staff who don't let things get too out of hand, lots of fun activities, toys and games, and also CHEAP! $805/month as of last year. :)

Our favorite Mexican place in the city. Tacos are better than La Tacqueria, Tortas better than Las Tortas, burritos better than... other burrito joints.

Pretty good neighborhood park, usually lots of friendly families around, reasonably good playground, lots of shade in summer.
