Will you be submitting an entry as well?

I have an exclusive link to a protoype of the British entry. It looks mean.

+Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ​ the most incredible thing about this post is the implication that you've "put away childish things":-)

There's an awful lot of hate going on for our Multi-Rotor projects. And some people seem to enjoy escalating to personal attacks, which is not acceptable. There are members of the KH community who are continually asserting that we only cover MRs... so I'm just going to leave this here for reference...

+Kevin Rippentrop Knowing the "Quad Father" gets most of his stuff from Banggood, it may also be this one:

Although it looks slightly different.

I just can't imagine living in a place where nature can be all, 

"Hey... nice train you got there..."

"BOOM! -- Deal with it."

Hey Know-It-Alls...

Have I told y'all recently how awesome you are? This has to be the most active group at TWiT (perhaps second to AAA, but those people are CRAY-CRAY!)

Keep it up... and here's a doge for your troubles.

Hey Know-It-Alls...

First, this is ENTIRELY THEORETICAL. Take it as no more than drippings from a sleep-deprived brain.

That being said: If +Bryan Burnett and I were to start doing two, slightly shorter episodes of KH each week, split between DIY and Maker topics, with a single project per episode but the same basic format... would you watch?
