Wow! Another month gone by. Almost two! Too much stuff going on around here and now the holidays are upon us. The weather has started to turn cold and windy, so not much flying time. I did manage to put together another quadcopter. It is a 350 class, slightly larger than the 250 quad that I broke. And another tricopter.
When I broke the arm on the 250 quad, it messed up a motor, so that left 3 motors for another tricopter. So, I figured what the heck. I put the KK2 HC flight controller on it. It definately behaves differently than the Flip 1.5 flight controller. I really need to take the time and make some pictures as I do these things. At least then I could do up a project page.
I also started on a 4x4x4 LED cube. It is going to take a while to get it together. It is using a STC 12C5A60S2 microcontroller, which I know nothing about, but it comes pre-programmed. We will see how that turns out. However, the price for the kit was right at under $10. Of course, I had to wait almost a month for it to arrive from China.
I am not making any promises, but I am hoping to post a few projects over the holidays. I just need to get myself in gear. Wish me luck!
