What kind of battle bot will you make it? Will it have a circular saw on the nose? Or a big swinging sledge hammer?

A big ol BOT was at Coyote Hills today.

There was virtually no lift, Alula was having trouble. Passer would have been nice but the battery was dead.

The glassy water started to appear rippled outshore, and then the wind hit right as someone with the BOT walked up saying he nearly didn't bring his plane for lack of wind. By now it was a good 12-17mph and that big ol Bird just floated up so nice and easy.

But that Spider...whoowhee what a nice flying plane!!

Sand, oil game? Didn't try it.

Wind was awesome today as City said. Had a super powered Weasel doing anything and everything I commanded. I was unstoppable. Well, except for the occasional plant that I hit swooping to low.

There are people across the street on the beach, and they are launching some of those Chinese lantern thingies. There is no wind right now, so they're all going straight up and away from any houses. They're quite beautiful!


I wouldn't mind seeing a mass launch of these things.

I've seen mass launches of them on calm nights at Burning Man, and yes, they are beautiful!
