Tiny Whoop Build & First Flight by scotland symons

Just wanted to do a quick update and share some of the first flights and video from my Tiny Whoop quad copter. Its a great quad and maybe my favorite yet to fly around. I am newer to FPV flying so no crazy tricks yet.

These guys have a great walk through on how to build your own and where to get all the supplies. 


I also really dug the video that the Flite Test guys put together.

Flippin Tables silly afternoon project by scotland symons

I have always loved the table flipping meme and decided to build it this afternoon and now you can too and flip tables for any occasion! Flip the tables whether you’re angry, sad or happy! Often expressed as a Japanese meme in emoticons, called kaomoji, this tiny table will certainly help you express your mood in the real world when ever you need to.

The simple instructions of how to use this device are given on both the top and bottom sides of the table describing proper use.

On the Top: (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ (indicating the flip technique)

On the Bottom: (ヘ・_・)ヘ┳━┳ (indicating the table reset)

So go ahead and print yours today and never be with out the soothing stress relief of flipping a table.

Quick tripod phone adapter for time lapse made from trash by scotland symons

Like the title says just a quick tripod phone adapter for time lapse made from trash and cardboard. When filming or building I try to reuse as much of the left over or junk parts to scratch build other things. This bit of ghetto film tech will probably last a while and I didn't have to waste time 3d printing it or spending any money to get another adapter.

If you have done something similar share it because I want to see what you built!
