TODO:

  1. Make up a power distribution harness for suppling power from the main lipo to the ESC’s.
  2. Recieve and solder new set of H-KING 20a  ESC’s ( Was only able to procure 3 Turnigy Plush 18a ‘s before they went into BACKORDER..ahhhh)
  3. Solder female JST to Arduino for control power.
  4. Design and build some kind of landing gear and battery harness.
  5. Purchase and install Onboard video system. (Go-Hero HD??)
  6. Charge Batteries

Dreaming – Our own personal simulator!

I’ve noticed over the past couple years and especially more recently, that sometimes I will continue to work on some challenge (coding/design project, school work, etc…) even while sleeping.

Quite frequently I awake only to remember bits and pieces.

Rarely can I remember the solution long enough to write it down and implement it the next day. When I have been able to, I was surprised to find out that it actually made sense. After watching this video, it seems to make more sense.

Perhaps their is a way to harness the power of our minds in a creative/productive way while we are in a seemingly useless/unproductive state.
