Short, II

Posted 10-21-2015 at 06:33 PM by Xyon (Rambling Sysadmin)

Jameson woke up without ever having realised he'd gone to sleep. As is usual in these cases, his body took a moment to perform an automated "systems check" to ensure vital elements such as arms, legs, heads, guts, and other associated components were indeed still attached and functional. The results were promising. However the next phase of the systems check, which focuses on trying to establish some kind of contact with the world outside, was not going so well.

For starters,...

Flight 38 - Three Towers Solitaire at Sundown

Posted 10-19-2015 at 08:09 PM by n122vu

10/6/2015 This was a straightforward flight with one primary goal - satisfy the requirement for three solo takeoffs and landings at a towered airport - and one secondary goal - chip away at the rest of my simulated instrument time.

Preflight, runup, all normal. Then, my CFI has me put on the hood as I taxi into takeoff position. "I'm going to have you do an instrument takeoff." Even though I've never done one, this actually sounded fun, which surprised me. I'm usually...

"It's a short piece of time but just enough to find
A little peace of mind under the sun somewhere"

Life has been busy. Work has been busy. Blogging is back-burner these days, so apologies ahead of time for the delays between posts.

Monday, 9/21/2015 The plan: Depart at 1200Z from HNB for SIV. Upon landing at SIV, shut down & take a break for a few minutes, get my things organized, then depart SIV for MVN. Same plan at MVN, though originally...

Flight 36 - Looking for Some Guy Named Charlie

9/15 was scheduled to be my long solo cross-country. Unfortunately, as they often do, day-job commitments got in the way. Randy wouldn't be available to sign me off for the trip, so we elected to meet that evening and fly down to KEVV for work in the Charlie (Class C) airspace.

The flight down was uneventful. and as had been the case for many flights recently, it was very hazy - hazy enough in fact that neither one of us could see KEVV with certainty until we were about 7 nm out,...

Sainsmart Update 2

Posted 09-23-2015 at 02:37 PM by Notebook

Realised I had both motors wired wrong...robot was going in the opposite direction to the tilt. Why I didn't notice earlier who knows. I blame old-age.
Seems a lot more stable now it drives "under" the tilt. Nearly there, still waiting for the HK batteries.
