Postcards from Los Santos

Spanning a week or two we begin with the end of last night and a couple of bad fellows who got on the wrong side of the Lack of Motorcycle Club. They just wanted an excuse for a cuddle.

The Habanero, a particularly shit car that holds a special place in EMW's and my heart for it saved us in an hour of need. Now it has become the icon of a club that needed no icon. The first rule of Habanero Club is that you blow it up.

FPV Quadcoptering for about 80 quid

My work colleague (we'll call in Charles) wants to get into FPV and we've been experimenting with a few cheap options. There's now a ridiculuously cheap way to get into it. It all comes from the Chinese copy-house Eachine and the components are crazy-similar.

Assuming a single battery for flight (to start with) and you have a soldering iron or access to one (or live near me).

DJI Inspire 2 Coming soon also the most ridiculous use of a drone ever at 2:25

Fairly standard upgrades faster a dedicated fpv camera and then micro 4/3rd 4k sensor with interchangeable lens mounts for primary cameras and it will shoot in raw mode and record direct to an onboard pcie ssd (probably m.2 by the looks of it)

It has the phantom 4 obstacle avoidance systems and now an upward looking sensor to avoid obstructions above it

better battery life faster speeds

MC - To The End

In 1.10 those kindly folk at Mojang inserted a great many cool bits and bobs into the game. Most notably was cool stuff in The End. Not just blocks to build with but wings to fly on and other treats. While I've been pottering about and building here and there and working on THE SECRET PROJECT, I've not really had an adventure in a long time (Horse House might have been the last one). So, off to The End to kill the dragon it is!
