"The Grass Is Brown Everywhere"

Year's ago I took a job in Texas and when I started work I discovered that I had been "sold" on the job as much as I had been selling myself to the company.

After 2 weeks of discovering how this new job was even worse than my previous one, I returned to the former job (with a big pay increase) and coined the phrase "The Grass Is Brown Everywhere" to explain why I returned.

The acronym TGIBE became my username on many forums and accounts over the years...

500 Build Part V

Posted 04-28-2008 at 11:40 AM by TGibe

This weekend I was able to make some progress once again on my build. I really got sidetracked with all of the sleeving on the servo wiring. I even ended up putting braiding on the satellite RX!

On Saturday and Sunday I was able to accomplish the following:
  • Added braiding to all cabling except the main power cables.
  • Cut down the gyro cabling to 4-5 inches, added braiding, and repinned connectors.
  • Mounted the RX and Gyro to my rdlohr tray using Zeal tape.
  • Mounted the satellite RX.
  • Connected all servos and tied down the cabling.
  • Installed a Western Robotics LiPo alarm and buzzer.
  • Added Dean's connectors to my 5 Align 6S 2600mAH Lipos.
I am enjoying the build and am close to being done with the mechanical part of the build. I still have a bit of work to accomplish with electronics and head setup...
