Not nearly so chicken after today!

Posted 02-18-2008 at 03:54 PM by Trooper Sam

At last, I've crossed a major hurdle in my RC helicopter experience.

Today, at last, without it being an emergency, I pulled the hold switch and did my first planned autorotation.

I'd been getting a bit froggy with my 600 the past couple of days, with rolls, loops, flips, and even flipping it inverted for a few seconds before I rolled out to recover. I'd also been mixing it up with a lot of slow controlled flight near the deck, as I've been wanting to get much more...

After all of this time, the first inverted hover...sort of :)

I broke out the 450SE today, after letting it sit dormant for a few months. I've been doing loops and rolls with the 600, but haven't felt froggy enough to flip it inverted and hold it there.

After getting used to the tiny little beast again, and throwing it through rolls and such, I decided to go ahead and flip it, and do it high enough up and far enough out for safety.

I did so several times, one time really kind of losing it and getting it close to the pits, but...

Changin'? YEP!

It's official, we're having a baby! She's about five weeks along.

Good thing I pretty much have the heli and RC stuff I want. I think it might be awhile before I add anything else.

Pet Cloners Receive First Order

Here it is, a story from the BBC about a cloning facility in South Korea that has received its first commercial order for cloning a pet dog:

Come on, humanity. I miss my dead pets too. I cry like a baby when one dies.

But I am simply not so blind or deluded that I think that this is bringing the pet back!

It'll look like ol' Fido, but it's never going to BE the same. That, and does...

Things might be a'changin'....

My wife dug up the ol' EPT kit today, and saw a plus sign. I'm not getting my hopes up yet, though, as I want a doctor's confirmation first.

If it is true, that'll mean I'll be almost 42 when I have my first kid. Just imagine, I'd be 60 when he/she graduates from high school.

It also means the cigarettes would be done, and for good. I always promised that my smoking would cease forever once a kid was on the way, and that's a commitment that will be kept.
