Things I had to make or repair today to support my habit^W hobby.

1. New wiring for my video stuff (got the twist to stick, had to reshape the connector and housing)
2. 433MHz monopole
3. Super tiny 2.4GHz rx (mostly did firmware work on that tonight since I did the bulk of the assembly earlier this week)
4. Slightly less hacky charging cable for my LiFe battery since the thing I was doing with alligator clips and a balance breakout board started smelling bad and stopped passing electricity through it)
5. That damned reset pin for icsp on the micro rx (broke it off in development, so I'm calling it again since it's such a pain)
6. LED repair.

I also ended up replacing the fpv camera on my 250.

The rx firmware stuff is getting nice. I added an auto bind mode when it's coming up clean (I.e., isn't bound to anything). Might make sense to do OpenLRS style binding.

+Pim van Pelt​ my fork is on github.com/dustin -- I think it's OpenSkyRX. It's not the prettiest, but I've been using it on my micro, so I figured it's good enough for my 190mm build.

Went to Halted today.  Actually found a few things I needed.  Lots of stuff I didn't.

Put a bunch of time into getting this right over the weekend.  Came out quite well, IMO.  The only thing that really needs improvement is the vtx.  That's getting fixed soon.

Yo dawg, I heard you liked remote control.
 
Hacker project for the weekend - a DSMx PPM receiver on my taranis, including bind button!

This will allow me to use DSM wireless buddy box, for example between a DX6i or DX8 as trainer, and my Taranis as master.

Also, check out this 200 he's working on. camera, osd, naze, etc...  I'm having a hard time resisting the temptation to have him cut me one.  :)  http://www.dailygusta.com/Quads/i-597pzbg/0/X3/CA_12101407301759-X3.jpg

Google Photos stylized this. I don't know what that means, but it's kind of neat.

I missed this weekend, but had a great time with my daughter in the south bay.  She's working on building her 250 (incredibly slowly since she keeps herself overbooked).
 
Drone racing using FPV (first person view). Last Sunday I visited a small group of avid drone racers in Berkeley, CA. They pop headsets over their eyes to drive their drones from "inside" the drone, rather than outside in "line of sight." It makes it much more fun, more intimate, and is really the only way to race. It is easy to hijack a signal with your own goggles and share the view from inside any drone, making it a cool spectator sport. Coming next, HD, 3D, and team coordination. The folks here really expect this to become the next NASCAR for the masses.

What are you flying? I guess I should also do the thing where I dump my bom and settings on videos for interested parties since I'm asking.

Sunday Sunday Sunday.

[I ended up not staying for the whole thing.  Saw a few races, a few fights and went home to work on my new 250]

Imagine how much better the roads would be in the morning if kids either a) took the bus or b) walked/rode bikes to school like I used to do.  Tons of traffic in our area from cars piling up to get their kids to school before they take themselves to work.

Also, how much healthier the kids would be, and how much more likely they would be to appreciate the rides they get instead of complaining about how hard it is to do anything at all.

But crime is lower now and kids get less exercise in general, so I guess think of the children.
 
The Montgomery County parents say they saw it as a moment of independence for their kids, ages 10 and 6, but that authorities viewed it much differently.

More people died from medical malpractice than police officers. Flu killed more than Ebola, police officers and Ebola combined in the USA. More people died from hummingbird related accidents than Ebola in the USA. "There is something in your bathroom that can kill you. News at 11:00"
