I would stop going to the pub for your fav libation. Waking up on the cricket is no way to start the day

Whacking the balls into the fog and guessing where the pin is makes it different.
Coffee after is best.

I think they now make balls with internal lights so you can find them in the dark. There is also a sounding beacon you can put at the flag so at least you know what direction to hit the ball.

As for the fairway hazards , not much you can do to avoid them if you can't see them.

Mee too

I won't even pretend being on topic by stating that a snow blizzard prevents me from flying my EasyStar, so I had to spend the Sunday differently: I put together this thingy:



Two, diff thrust 22mm 1800kv outrunners driving counter rotating 5x3x3 GWS @ 2S. Only 2 x 25W, but also only 160gr, so fast as ****. Had to add turn fin to provide just a little stability.

Often gets airborne, so I might as well add wings and an elevator...

Snow? What's that? It's 84F here.

I like that. What's the base made from?

I'm not really sure. Some 3mm EPP like stuff that is marketed as base for flooring. Found a pack of 8 sheets in a hardware store for $10. Doesn't like CA, but putting more layers together, I use double sided tape, and add a 3mm cf tube here and there for stiffness. Then I hot glue motor mounts etc. to it.

Comparing EZGlider vs Stock EZstar Wings on an EZstar...

Seems to me that for the majority of the envelope, the big wings actually take less power to fly.

What do y'all think?

I like my ez glider wings on my easystar- flies and floats excellent- and the ailerons are real nice addition...

Maybe I was doing something wrong, but I was not impressed with the EZG wings on the EZ*. It flew OK but there did not seem a lot of difference in performance.

I like the green color. That's a beautiful job you've done!

I am planing on using this HD Wing Camera 1280x720p 30fps 5MP CMOS with my nephew during winter vacation. Is someone in US selling this camera?

Without doubt very interesting!
Just take some more measurements. Try to smooth out those little bumps.
