Re: Games

More games!...went on a binge around the holidays and stocked up on more to play at various gatherings... King of Tokyo: A fun game for all ages. You are a monster attacking Tokyo, and you want to be the baddest one. Either win on victory points, or defeat all the other monsters. Mostly a dice game,...

Re: Treasure Island, FL - January 18/19, 2014

Hello kids... I get in Friday morning and leave Tuesday afternoon with rental car. I have a studio room with a single queen now, but could probably change it to a double queen if you, Jeff, want to share a room. I could take you Monday if you need a ride. David David, how early on Friday do you get...

Re: Quadcopter!

I heard about that.

I had also seen a neat TED Talk about using unmanned copters to deliver food and medical supplies to regions of the world where access is frequently cut off. Interesting stuff.

Re: Everyone OK?

I attributed the incorrect camera usage to the understandable terror that must have driven thoughts of proper composition from the filmer's mind.

Re: Games

Rose made a lego version of Settlers of Catan. Settlers is a mild strategy game, the dice play too big a role to make it truly strategic, but it makes for a nice family/social game. Next time we spend a weekend at a festival, we can bring a copy of the game to play. I think Mikey plays it too? A be...

Re: Quadcopter!

I think I'll be building one. A lot of learning to do along the way. There's a lot of cool stuff you can do picking parts. For example, Joe's (he's the guy out here that's into RC and built one) has a radio that uses voice to periodically inform him of flight details like altitude and battery remain...

Re: Quadcopter!

What seems to be the most important, and most expensive, part is the gimbal for the camera mount. When the one in Indiana worked, it was great. I've found another online for much cheaper, around $150. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__44327__Tarot_T_2D_GoPRO_3_Brushless_Camera_Gimbal_and_Z...

Re: Quadcopter!

Went to meet our local flyers yesterday. (Another bad wind day. We've had that most of the times I've tried to fly out here.) Anyway, the guy in the club that is big into RC and copters brought his quadcopter rig for me to check out. It's not a ready-to-fly kit like the Phantom, it's a different kin...

Re: Anyone used a poster tube for kite airline travel?

I just put 2 or 3 kites in a sleeve, and put in in the overhead. Never had an issue.

Re: Games

New game for the list. Well, not totally new as I've heard of it and it's very popular. But Ticket To Ride is a neat board game sort of in the tradition of Catan in that you use cards to claim routes on the map. http://cdn1.daysofwonder.com/tickettoride/en/img/tt_photo8.jpg It's also available in el...

I'm guessing that's the old Stapleton control tower, and he's on the former runway area.

You guess right!

Re: Quadcopter!

The Phantom 2 Vision comes out in November... Want! Want! Want! (They say it will be more expensive than the Phantom 1, but less expensive than the Phantom + stabilizing Gimbal and camera as that is integrated into the unit.)
