RC Nerd

Got another month before my neck is full strength. Thought that RC airplanes would keep me out of trouble. As long as I don't stick a finger into 100 watt plastic prop i should be alright. This trick took me a few tries. Saw a 6 year old do it on u-tube. Embarrassingly, the 6 year old is still way better than me.

The following was tested on this weekend's 90 mile white Rim trail:
8 mountain biker's butts
1 arch

1 Jeep and 2 people's nerves (both were made of steel) (Scott's Parents Jim and Carol)

Good times.

A SLC rule of thumb

above old mower i got from parkstrip for free. Below mower goes from which it came.

Q: How many minutes will an item on the park strip take to get picked up?

A: Here is a good rule of thumb. Take 400 minutes and divide by the square of the net worth of the item on the curb.
since my lawn mower got picked up from the park strip in 1 minute I would estimate its worth to be $20

Who killed the electric mower?

Nobody killed it as it is still alive and well. Picked this little jesse up at Lowes. on sale $190 gotta say i am pretty happy with it, cord reaches everywhere and not as annoying as i thought. Way quieter and way less pollution. Pretty light so it pushes easy. we will see how she does later with a dull blade. The task force weed eater on the other hand is a complete turd. (no line feed=no good)

8 hours build + $100 = ?

On line I saw a 5 year old kid flying the piss out of one similar to this. How hard could it be? After flying this very acrobatic styrofoam cup for a minute I think i may have once again overestimated my skills. How long will it last? How much will it end up costing per hour? good questions. So far 1 minute = $6,000/hr
