Hello, all!

I’ve been a longtime ‘lurker’ of the DroneBot Workshop and am constantly amazed with the possibilities of what can be created.

Personally, I am currently in the process of building a Boeing 727-200 home cockpit using real aircraft parts and avionics for interfacing with X-Plane.   A huge and challenging task, no doubt, and I ask for your patience and understanding when I post questions.  I am a newbie when it comes to electronics and applications and firmly believe that we all have something to contribute.  As my late grandfather once told me:  All the world’s brains are not in a single head.

I look forward to learning from everyone and sharing my knowledge as I progress.

Sincerest greetings from Las Vegas!

Be well,

Jay

That sounds fascinating. I am interested in building a "cockpit" for FPV rather than using the Goggles.  I can barely hand fly my little flying wing and sadly seem to have little time to advance this project presently. I have flown Tiger Moth and Chipmunk and built an RV - 4 which sadly was destroyed in a wild fire before I got to fly it.

Good afternoon everyone.

I draw blueprints for structural steel all day, but at night i solder things in the basement.

I am self taught using arduino esp8266, and Json to my UNIX Splunk server.

Hello World! 

My name is Dryden and I live in the Okanagan Valley in BC Canada.

I have always had an interest in robotics my whole life although due to circumstances I had to join the labor force at a young age and now at 45 years old I am making the opportunity for myself to follow my dreams of building my own robotics. I am completely new to this so get ready for some dumb questions lol :). 

I have bought myself some fun new toys and have followed along with a lot of the tutorials that Bill has provided us on The Dronebot Workshop for a little over a year now. I have nobody in my life that knows or understands anything to do with electronics, So It is really awesome to be able to come here and discuss different topics with you fine people! 

I have a few ideas for a few robots that I would like to build, and I am currently working on a small robot to help me learn how to code properly and efficiently, however I will start a post in the projects forum to discuss that project further.

Thank you for accepting me, cant wait to here back from you!

Similar story to myself in that I spent most of my life in the labor work force except I did it for a lot longer! However I did find time to teach myself basic electronics and programming as a hobby. Small robots have everything a medium or large robot would need you only have to scale up the hardware to larger motors and their driver circuits. The sensory system and software would be much the same.

Always interested in other people's ideas as to building a "real" robot.

I posted this some time ago now and have since been experimenting on sensory systems and pc-arduino control.

@will Haha I actually wasn't thinking about the fruit picking, but that would make sense for where I live too lol! Thank you for that!

@robotbuilder Thank you for that Yes I have seen those videos at least once, I re-watch them while I'm building. I started a new topic in Other Robots forum... area..... thing..... Sorry I'm new to Forums too! lol Showing the project I am currently working on, I'm not sure if it is posted yet or not, But I would like to get your feed back on what you think about it so far!

Hopefully they'll help finish off the Mountain pine beetles (at least).

@will Well, we don't have a lot of beetle kill in this area.... This could be a bit of touchy subject right now with a fire still trying to bang on my back door right now lol... a lot of heated debates going on right now, pardon the pun.

I just hope that the fires stay far off and that you won't have to abandon your place.
