My buddy Steve over at Finkbuilt just posted a new video on his YouTube channel he shot from his 250 sized Quadcopter and it's spectacular!  Steve took this video at Gas Works Park on a nice sunny Seattle day capturing the experience in HD.   He gets around a 6 minute flight time from the copter he built.   I'm hooked -- Steve, I want one!!

RC10 Classic 3Q L_Body On_lg

When I was a kid I always had my eye on the Team Associated RC10 but it was very expensive.  I was however still lucky to get my hands on a Tamiya Grasshopper (also recently rereleased), but it was never a RC10 replacement.    I come to find out that Team Associated has rereleased the RC10 Classic kit for a limited time.   Still made in the U.S.A. (or “a good portion of it is”) with the same basic parts (full list of changes here) — I believe the tooling has changed but for the most part they are identical (read about it more here).   Even the most iconic component, the gold anodized aluminum tub chassis, is included except it has been updated to fit either a 6-cell NiMh or 2S LiPo battery packs.

we are happy to serve you

I’ve been using this cup for the past week and it puts a smile on my face each time I use it.  If you have ever been to NYC you know exactly what this cup is about.  If not, you can read up about it here.   It’s considered the world’s most famous paper cup and it’s now been replicated in ceramic complete with details you’d see in the paper cup version (seam and lip overlay).   Not much else to say about it other than it holds 10 ounces of liquid, is manufactured of lead-free earthenware and is microwave and dishwasher safe.  A single cup retails for about $12.
