Got my UAV trimmed out and not crashing so I’ve been a little braver with my flying :)

I always feel accomplished when I get dark-symphony to say crepes with the American pronunciation versus the British one. It’s the little things in life. It’s just kind of hilarious to me.

Even worse, I was tricked into pronouncing “crêpe” as “crépe.”

Proof that this demonic creation of mine actually flies XD

I’m thinking of calling it the CloudRig owing to its similarity in appearance to some of the North Sea oil rigs I’ve seen

A few random numbers:

Diagonal length: 480mm

Takeoff weight: 2.1kg

Maximum static thrust: 6.7kg

Number of props broken in setup and testing: 5

Design - reality: my UAV project :)

Will hopefully upload some flight photos tomorrow

Designing the airframe for my drone has been somewhat long and arduous, but I think the current design (the last one) is finally ready for the CNC machine :)

So, placement update time. I’m still having an epic time here down in Guinness land; so far I’ve designed 3 drones for the company, all of which are in prototyping at the moment. Also decided to design and build a drone for myself (the one in the pic) - expecting parts for it next week, then I can cut the airframe :)

Ireland is still pretty awesome, still gutted about my lack of decent internet. Looks like I’m gonna have to download the eps of new SAO and Sailor Moon Crystal at work then U:

I love how the tubes are just there for show.

Haha I have one of these and the tube gain is great for making an already somewhat unpleasant sounding synth into a kinda distorted mush-fest.

Something I’ve been working on-and-off since March for one of my all-time favorite novel/movie. ♥

Whoop back in England for a few days (making use of the Irish bank holiday weekend.) Time to download ALL the things!

Made a trip out to Lough Hyne this morning, weather looked questionable but turned out to be so worth it :) Ireland is so pretty U:
