This is an early one, normally we don’t get a driving situation video until about halfway, maybe three-quarters-way through the month.  This month is different, obviously.

The video is presented without comment.  You know, other than to say “OH SHIT.”

p.s. Great job on the auto-generated thumbnails YouTube.  PERFECT.

So, I recently acquired a Parrot Bebop 2 (the FPV variant!) and I finally got to fly it for an extended period.

Let me tell you: this thing is GREAT.  It is responsive, fast, has a huge range, and has VR First-Person View.

I can’t record the First-Person View, but here’s the footage from flying around Sabella Park on Saturday.

There’s a bunch of different tests.

I’m really impressed with the auto-track features, the GPS flight features, auto-stabilization, and constant camera view.

The controller has an integrated 2.4Ghz wireless antenna, which makes the max flight distance a little over a mile.

If you ever want to try flying it, let me know!

I’ve been playing a lot of this game recently (I mean, well, a lot, considering I only got the game on 3/12) and I was also involved in 2 of the betas (one closed; one open).  I must say, they got a lot right here, but there’s still room for improvement.

So I’m going to talk about it, and you’re going to get a review.  Maybe we’ll start a discussion.

Here’s my thoughts on Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

This morning on the way to work I encountered an idiot driver.

This idiot properly signaled their turn and initiated said turn properly.

That being said, they stopped their car as soon as they hit the drive way and just sort of stayed there.

Right in the middle of the road.


Presented here, because I can.

Fun on a bun!
