    WHile surfing this morning I stumbled across a pretty cool web site where members are doing some amazing things building and operating their very own UAV's...

    Just for fun, I'd love to get one of those in the air, and point it over the Groom Lake area of Nevada.. Just to see what would happen :)

    Okay here's the real issue... we need to start coming up with an excuse so my wife will gladly let me take on yet another very expensive hobby... Maybe something along that lines of how it will help her garden grow and pick out the best sales prices???

    now that's a real head scratch er

    If I were a rabbit......

    If I were a rabbit....I'd steer clear of Farmer McDonald's carrot patch too, if it were patrolled with a chain gun armed DIY drone!!! Yikes!!!

    I've been checking that site from time to time for the last couple of years. The technology is pretty accessible, within reach of common people.
