Be back in a few days, the same place, same reason and hang out at Rodney's at night, no martinis.

I resemble that remark

 

 Been trying to get my head around horn principles..... Simple concept. Then I factor in what I know about musical instruments and "tuning" and a ton of variables appear...  it gets messy.

  Not too good at reading and understanding. I'm a hands on learner.  I might not be the brightest... but, I sure am slow.

 

When I was doing a "proof of concept" on the blade control system for R/C helicopters...

I increased the sensitivity of the controls by eliminating a lot of extraneous parts [and slop]. That cascaded into having to "adjust" everything else. Dampers, flybar material and length. Paddles or not. Weight of them. Blade length ..... Type of blade.

 

I know we [as a general rule] do not care for "average"... Today's weather will be "average", and we will like it a lot.

 

speaking of R/C helicopters... Y'all appreciate high performance. This is a factory sponsored "pilot"

 

I have been to "the field" when folks were flying like this.

I really wanted to be in a bunker.

 

=== quite the display, crazy in fact - oh, can you get his number - I could use a haircut 💇‍♂️

So Tiger won his fifth jacket.  With the early start no happy hour watching the final group come in.

  I watched a little of it.  

I can appreciate the skills involved. I don't play. 

  All the golfing I do, is with my whip sickle.  The technique is similar, Max head speed without too much muscling...

I need to "play 18" every day for the next few. The rough is knee deep.

Not sure how you found that remote copter video but that &uc&$r is wicked good with controlling it @WillyBob !

Looks like a big hummingbird having a fit! That or a bumblebee, those are the only things I've seen move similarly to that.

Hi @JohnJ

 

search 3-D helicopter flying 

I used to be active... Simple, little, easy to fly...  Got out for a couple reasons...

1] very expensive hobby. Even if you don't crash, they are maintenance intensive. Stuff wears out fast. 

2] I got a "Sorry, wrong number" call from Raytheon. Truth

We were [basically] beta and in a lot of cases alpha testers.  We would buy these silly little helicopters that would barely fly... let alone be controllable...so we could rebuild them and make them air worthy.

.... so

when I hear about modding things... I can relate. 

Especially to the "tinker factor" many of us are given to. 

 

 it's getting a hold of me... Notice a couple posts back, "I'm trying to get my head around horn principles"..

 Willy thinking about building something. 

 

Sorry, I can't remember his handle... but the sewer tile sub has some potential.

I was actually going to say the same thing.  I spent the weekend installing ac in my garage while my wife primed and painted so I actually DID watch paint dry and it was honestly more interesting than golf.

So watching golf in person would be like watching flies up close then.  He was very profound.

Well at least in person you're outdoors, probably with other people socailizing and you had to travel and make preparations. But seriously if you are down to watching golf on TV you need to get a hobby...hint.....  Listening to awesome Klipsch speakers comes to mind:)
