Art and stuff

So I have bought yet another Helicopter, this time it is a 6 channel, fully collective pitch and 3D capable beast. It’s the next step in my quest. I have had to de-tune the controls to make it flyable, but it’s providing me with a steep learning curve.

The new one is slightly larger the Genious FP and a lot more powerful. There is only one motor, the tail is driven by a shaft, which means that the speed of the tail rotor is kept relative to the main rotor. I am going to have to wait for some good weather to fly it outside.

Today we have had some very wet soggy snow, it’s floating around zero at the moment, -8 yesterday and meant to be 9 today, but I can’t see that happening.

Yesterday Hannah and I fancied a full English breakfast, so short of black pudding we made it for brunch. Also Hannah wanted to get creative, so we got artistic:

Hannah’s creative art piece was made using crayons and a hair dryer, pretty cool!

Also Hannah got some lovely pictures of a sun set and one of Tigger;

  1. Wow Hannah your crayon artwork is really cool! I’m sure there’s some arty people out there, who would pay alot for it! I could see it at the Tate Modern! Is it your take on the Northern Lights? What are you going to create next?

  2. You will have to build/buy a hangar soon for your helicopter collection Brendan.
    The photo of the breakfast made Dad feel very hungry – but no black pudding – bit disappointing! The sight of bacon also made Dad feel thirsty.
    Do not know where you and Jessica get the artistic genes from – Granny maybe?
    Great photos of the sunset and loved the one of Tigger
