I’ve been flying my Skywalker Carbon for two years now, it was my second FPV plane, the first being a delta wing. I prefer the design of the skywalker due to it’s landing gear. I find hand launching a heavy delta wing can be very difficult and you really need a decent landing strip which […]
Referencing my previous post on setting up a proxy for your Octoprint webcam, I found that I wasn’t happy with the quality of the timelapse videos. Especially when my webcam is 1080p! I happen to have a second webcam lying around, so I decided to hook it up to Octoprint and use one webcam for […]
I just set up Octoprint on a Raspberry Pi to manage my Rostock Max V2 3D printer. You can view the webcam, timelapses of existing prints, and other cool stuff at: http://3dprinting.thedoble.com Problem is that even at extremely low resolutions, my internet connection can’t handle more than one person accessing the webcam. My goal was […]
I’m lucky to be involved in the eSports scene doing IT work for live events. Every now and then I get to do some videography as well. These events are usually held in huge convention centres and involve massive stages and stands. What’s the best way to capture the scale? … height! Of course […]
After the moderate success I had with my first mini hex prototype, I thought I would start fresh and apply what I had learned to a new design. Technically, this post covers revisions 5-6 of my design. My main goals were as follows: Improve strength and durability Make parts easily duplicated and replaced – EG […]
I love my Vampire hexicopter. It’s been an awesome airframe, extremely reliable, it looks awesome, and it gets fantastic video. It’s main drawbacks are it’s size and it’s flight time. The Vampire takes up most of my car boot, and it’s too big to take on a plane unless you invest in an $800 flight […]
I love efficiency. I love seeing an office get by using exactly what they need with no fluff. Terminal Services services suits that goal perfectly, which is why a number of my clients use it. You get an office whereby everyone works on a secure, controlled environment that is identical for each user. It removes […]
Here’s the assembled mini quad! Don’t ask why there is a random surfboard there. It was just there in the park. Turns out it makes a pretty good landing pad!
I had my first problem with my new Delta 3D printer today. I was messing around with some of the settings, mostly relating to extrusion amount, retraction and speed. I found some settings online that someone else had posted and adjusted my existing settings to match. Then I did something silly. I started a print […]
I’ve started the project of 3D Printing a quadcopter. The quad is called the Hammer Mini H Quad V3 and has been converted from DXF for 3D use.
