We begin the process of removing the motors from a Hubsan 502e and go through a real-world learning experience of just what it takes to replace the motors for the first time on a quadcopter.

This is not a glossed over video with just the steps. This shows the entire process (mistakes included so you don't repeat what I did!) in 3 parts and the fourth part will feature test flights to wring out the quad to insure the repair is satisfactory.

If you have a parent with a walker, it might be a good idea to check it for issues. My mother's walker began to have an issue with the seat which started with screws loosening and then the seat abruptly fell off after the plastic bearing blocks broke.

It is hard to believe how cheaply some things are made, but my mother's walker experienced a break with plastic - yes - plastic bearings that can hardly be expected to last over the long haul. I made a somewhat permanent repair for this first phase of the job, to get it working for her, but plan to add more beefed up clamps to insure the fix is absolutely foolproof.

We review the Bushnell Backtrack D-Tour GPS and take it for a field test to see how well it works and to test it's ability to track a path I walked on the road in front of my home. We'll be doing another video on this unit soon to give it a more extreme test on a real trail and to have it guide us to a remote spot that the hiker who will have the unit never has been to.

This is our test of the Bushnell Backtrack G2 handheld GPS unit. The BackTrack provides distance and a directional arrow to any of the three saved locations at the push of a button. In this video, we test the Backtrack G2 in two real-world scenarios: Navigating at speed in a car and a short hike to return to an origin point. <P>Amazon Link: https://goo.gl/UzyzHp

Our 5 inch Ferrite Sleeve Loop (FSL) antenna project is done and we have finished off the antenna with connecting up the litz wire connector after having to do a little fabrication work and some additional shoring up of the bulk antenna/ferrous rod section of the antenna. Links: This was the original article, but the original server that had it is no longer online. I had a version of the original article saved as PDF along with a couple of others - The original site is no longer up. Gary Debock has since put up a new version of the antenna - I will provide the links to this soon since copying them here to BitChute is proving problematic due to the size...

The FSL antenna is an antenna for improving the reception of long distance AM stations. This video covers the first part of my construction of the antenna. This was the original article, but the original server that had it is no longer online. I had a version of the original article saved as PDF - The original site is no longer up. Gary Debock has since put up a new version of the antenna and I have the new links here as well.

I have had the privilege in the past to fly with some of the best pilots I've ever met. The Red Star Pilot's Association is an amazing group of people who fly vintage Chinese and Russian warbirds in mock combat and air shows all over the U.S. This music video celebrates a trip I took with them in 2014. Enjoy!

Repair of a flaw in my Stanley work light that causes it to refuse to work. This light is a great unit, when it works. Adding a switch to control the power and fully reset the circuit cured the issue. This video shows the disassembly of the light, the repair and the reassembly.

This video shows how to program a 808 #16 Keychain camera for RC flight or other uses like hat-cams and the like.
