Re: Drones, quadcopters, and FPV flight

Even if his drone isn't the most expensive, or the most functional, I'm sure it will be ostentatious and large and emblazoned with the Trump logo. I suspect it will have an unusual but memorable toadstool shape. El Capitan you have been removed as the drone king! Today trump made following statemen...

Re: Drones, quadcopters, and FPV flight

For the record: I have not been - and to my knowledge I have no reason to be - detained by the British authorities. ;) Tell me there is no possibility that Mr. 5chn3ll traveled to England with his air force of drones; final destination Gatwick airport. If so we need to start a GoFundMe to scrounge ...

Re: 991 for Cuda911 - My new (to me) 991

I ain't fixing shit. If you haven't figured that one out by now... Mike, if you haven't swapped your way up to a CGT (with a warranty) in three weeks, I'll be disappointed. Working on it. This guy wants to swap for my 914, but I'm not too keen on the yellow. Do it! DO IT! JUST DO IT!!! :lol:

Re: Got me some nice new shoes!

Been looking for a good set of Porsche OEM 18" Turbo Twists to fit my car. While I've enjoyed the 19" Vossen wheels, I always loved the look of the 18" Porsche 993 turbo twists. In comparison, the handling is much better on the 18" twists... that is, the steering is noticeably lighter. I can't real...

Oh, that car was gonna be pink. There was zero doubt about that, no matter what dad said.
Yes, I knew that already...In addition; congratulations to your daughter. She should be proud.

Re: The Good Old Days of Radio Control before Drones

Not radio controlled, but we just got back from the Girl Scouts Pinewood Derby where my daughter and her JoJo Siwa themed car got 4th. I think the JoJo Bow mounted on the rear may have hurt the aero profile a bit - and she finished 3/1,000ths of a second out of 3rd place. I do not believe this is y...

Re: The Good Old Days of Radio Control before Drones

Nice. My 1/8th monster truck was about $1200 with batteries and charger. Picked up a 1/10th for my oldest at the start of the summer for $400 ready to run (it's NiMH and brushed though). When I got my first monster truck in the late 80s it was $300 by itself, all the electronics were separate, and ...
