New Blog!

Not directly Orbiter related, but close.
I'm interested in control systems and servos, so I thought I'd build this and get into PID in software/hardware.

It will take as long as it takes, and I'll post some pics and progress here. Haven't got all the bits to start yet, my soldering-iron is long lost...

Flights 33 & 34 Cross-country - Working out the Kinks

Posted 09-02-2015 at 03:07 PM by n122vu

My first cross-country after my medical flight test was to KCUL, Carmi, IL. I won't go into too much detail, but the 'clumsy' version of Brian showed up in full force during this flight.

I blame a lot of it on my kneeboard. On the way to my medical flight test I'd used the Sporty's tri-fold kneeboard, strapped to my leg, and it worked ok, but I found myself fumbling for a couple things and not really having enough room for everything I needed.

("Old dog" referring to my age, not my time as a pilot here)

It's been a busy week for me as far as flying goes - for the first time in almost a year I got two flights in. Monday was the first. Already different from the norm in that I usually fly on Tuesdays, this would be a flight that would stretch me, and also teach me some valuable skills with regards to landing an airplane.

Monday, 8/3 I'll skip the uneventful account of preflight & run-up and...

A Millennium in Space pt 1/?

Posted 08-06-2015 at 03:49 AM by fsci123

I always have ideals for space related fiction but I dont have time to write them in actual books. Im also bad at writing so i dont need a lot literary criticism. And im procrastinating on some of my music projects so writing this bizarre piece of fiction is something im doing.

tl;dr this is timeline with random quotes and commentary of space stuff for the next 1000 years

The First Century or so

Even though...
