➢ High Performance energy dense and charges 20 times faster than lithium ion batteries. It is also more powerful than other advanced batteries, operating above four volts.

➢ Cost Competitive slots directly into existing manufacturing processes, requiring no change to existing manufacturing lines. Even more, the battery allows for consolidation of the supply chain, with only one active material carbon. Additionally, manufacturing of the Ryden battery is under no threat of supply disruption or price spikes from rare metals, rare earth or heavy metals.

➢ Reliable first ever high performance battery that meets consumer lifecycle demand, rated for more than 3,000 charge/discharge cycles.

➢ Safe safest high performance battery chemistry ever developed. The Ryden battery eliminates the unstable active material used in other high performance batteries, greatly reducing fire and explosion hazard. Even more, the battery experiences minimal thermal change during operation, eliminating the threat of a thermal runaway. Finally, the Ryden battery can be 100 percent charged and discharged with no damage to the battery.

➢ Sustainable contains no rare metals, rare earth metals or heavy metals, and is 100 percent recyclable, vastly improving the cradle-to-cradle sustainability of an advanced battery. Even further, Power Japan Plus is testing the Ryden battery with its organic Carbon Complex material, working towards the goal of producing the battery with all organic carbon in the future. http://powerjapanplus.com/about/news.html

Mini quads are almost indestructible and can do all the things that a full size one can do. I'm going to build something like this out of wood..Mine will only be around the same size and made of wood. The frame will be the one that I designed "I-Quad" off of the flite test H-quad. It will be painted flat black. The frame will be the same one that I used in my first H-quad build "I-Quad". Just scaled down to fit a 4 inch prop. I'll be using a 2200 3s, 12 amp ESCs, lightweight motors. I did the math and I can use a motor that weighs as much as 70g though lighter would be better. Still looking for the right motors. It is not much harder for me to make two or three mini quads, as it is for me to make one. Message me if you're interested in owning a Badass little I-Quad. You buy the parts for me to make 2 and when I'm done I'll ship one to you. I'll even pay for shipping of the finished product. after I receive the parts, It will take less then a week to finish it. All my build pics are on Facebook.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzJH5BxQzdgCessna 208 Caravan and I jump out of it.It was 27 below 0 when we jumped at 1200 feet. It was my first time to do skydiving and i did a tandem jumping. I love it! When the parachute opens It feels just like FPV. You gotta try it. Cannot wait to do another jump. Thanks to the women of my dreams for making it happen.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzJH5BxQzdg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzJH5BxQzdg
