4G6S Rebuilt (again)

Another crash and another rebuilt later. This time I borrowed some parts from the V120D02 bin, which gives a nice red canopy and more importantly, a taller tail fin to stop those tail strikes. Ready for flying this weekend!

Went for a great late afternoon ride today - highlights include a 32mph 'both wheels fully locked' skid nearly missing a tree on a newly found patch of downhill, and a great mile long downhill path on the way home... made it up 'Impossible Hill' too :)

McCulloch M53-675 DWA

Having used M's petrol mower for the last few weeks I've decided it is time to buy my own. Found this nifty little 4-stroke with a load of cool features such as auto-mulch and self-priming easy start. Also has a plastic box (not fabric) so won't rot. Next question - can I modify the electronics of a Roomba to guide it autonomously...?

Barnes Rugby

Had a great Sat with Thomsons watching the Rugby at Barnes. The day got better as they won 43-12 automatically promoting them in the process. Lots more pics linked in the title...

Heli Flying...

Had a great day flying at the park. Starting to get the hang of it too. Had some amusing crashes though - hit a tree twice, and went through another set of blades and tail gears. Batteries charging ready for tomorrow... more pics linked in the title.

It was hot. We had charcoal. There was cold beer. BBQ :)

Canon Pixma MG6150

My old HP ran out of ink again, which was the perfect time to get a new printer :) The MG6150 is faster to print, can do duplex printing and is totally wireless - plus it gets rid of all the HORRIBLE HP software from my computer!!!
