    June 2021 Fasting Detox

    Over the past few months, I’ve started experimenting with Intermittent Fasting (IT) mainly as a way to lose weight. Intermittent Fasting is a sort of diet (well not a diet) where you choose to eat only during a particular time frame. A common pattern is that you only eat from 11AM to 7PM (8 hours each day). The obvious benefit for weight loss is that you are restricting your calories without needing to carefully count your calories. But, there are other benefits as well and many people use IT as a detox or just as a way to give your digestive system a break. Earlier this year, I started to…

    I Tried Intermittent Fasting for a Week

    Well, a few weeks actually. I’ve been experimenting with Intermittent Fasting on and off for a few weeks already. But, I haven’t really focused on whether or not this practice could affect my weight loss goal. So now is the time to do that, but before I get into the gritties let’s back up and talk about what Intermittent Fasting is. What is Intermittent Fasting? Many diet plans will tell you to count your calories, measure your food, exercise more, and tell you what you eat. Basically the idea is always if you take in less calories than you need you will lose weight: calories in and calories out. The…

    Ghost

    Last week, I got a solid flight in. This took place in a school parking lot that has an area off to the side with stands of trees and even a sort of enclosed area that is not used by anyone. This place was great at this time of day, I really loved how the setting sun lit the tops of the trees. This is part of a series that I’m doing for my FPV drone channel. I’m working on getting final flights at each of my old spots. It’s basically a long goodbye tour of the hobby. So, take look and enjoy!

    Is Bob Lazar for Real?

    I first learned about Bob Lazar last year when Netflix released a documentary titled Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers. This documentary was kinda crazy, it was filmed with a dramatic voice-over reading from a bizarre script. But, the subject of the film, Bob Lazar, seemed somewhat credible. Lazar and his associates have also appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast. For those of you who don’t know, Bob Lazar is a guy who claimed to work on reverse engineering alien technology for the government in 1989. His story was part of the reason that Area 51 became such an infamous spot in popular culture. The thing about Bob’s story…

    Source One Drone Build

    I had big plans to build an Armattan Marmotte frame this summer. I didn’t… Here’s why. The build I spec’ed out with that premium frame and overpriced premium (LOL not really premium) motors cost about $500 for just one build. YIKES. After I lost my job last year, I had to learn how to budget and FPV drones are at the bottom my budget. Sure I’m working now, but I’m not making the same money and most of my energy is going towards starting up my freelancing business. So… I did the math in my head and realized that if I stuck to my plan of having 2 drones with…

    Fall 2019 FPV Setup

    I’ve been in the hobby for two years now. I started with toy drones that I got in a “White Elephant” Christmas Eve game. That was the first hit. My first real drone was the Wizard 220, but it only lasted two days. I moved on to building my own FPV drones starting with a huge camera drone with plastic arms that never really flew right. I was following instructions written the year before, which in any other hobby would have been fine. Not FPV. NOTE my build choices are down below, feel free to skip my rambling and scroll down… Finally, in the early summer 2017 I managed to…

    Top 10 FPV Videos of All Time

    FPV drone pilots are inspired by a culture largely driven through YouTube videos. Most of us have our own YouTube channels and love to share our content with the FPV community. Many videos shape our culture and influence what we do in real life. Here are my picks for the top FPV videos of all time. Some of these videos look dated by our standards today but are so influential that they have shared our experience and deserve a place here. Take a look and let me know what you think. Did I get it right? If not too bad, hash it out in the comments and then go fly!…
