Hi all,

I look forward to participating in the forum. My current hobbies: Microcontrollers, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP, Flight Sim cockpit, EVs, robotics, 3Dmodelling, 3D printing, metal casting, machining, drones, solar/wind power, automation, greenhouse, chickens, C++, Java, Python, cooking and probably a few I am forgetting about...

Current project is hooking hall effect sensors with Arduino Pro micro, to interface as a joystick with MS Flight Sim 2020 for my Cessna 172 cockpit build.  There are other projects going to, but I won't list them all here, lol.

I am taking Java online at our local community college. I just ordered a Raspberry Pi Pico and look forward to running some Python code on it as a microcontroller.

Scott

Imagine by thought, create, don't wait, Scott.

So, what do you do in your spare time : )   With all that I don't think you have any spare time.

Looks like your into a lot of different stuff. I have enough trouble getting my leds to blink in a

sequence.

Welcome to the forum.

Hello Scott,

I lived in Prescott 8-9 years ago. Love the place and miss the good people there. I worked at Bent River Machine in Clarkdale building solar panel laminators. Harold Harrington is the owner and teaches at Yavapai college, a good guy and superb engineer.

Good luck with your ongoing projects. I’m a new member as well and looking forward to the forum.

Take care, Craig

@noweare, Thanks for the welcome! In my "spare time" I drive 2400 miles round trip every month helping to build out a tiny-home cabin for my wife in the Ozarks, lol. 🙂

@scissorunner, thanks for the welcome! I love Prescott, too. I moved specifically here by choice about 14 years ago. So you and I were here at the same time. You probably remember old haunts like Coyote Joes. I opened a micro brewery, next door to what used to be Coyote Joes. I closed it Nov. 2019. One of my electronic projects was building my own HERMS brewing controller with PIDs & SSRs. I'll keep a (virtual) eye out for Harold in my course selection next semester. Every course I take is taught online.

Imagine by thought, create, don't wait, Scott.

Scott,

 I lived in Prescott from 2008 - 2013 and spent a lot of weekends at Coyote Joes cutting a rug while listening to the Cheektones. Good times!

Met my wife there while she was here finishing her masters at Prescott college. We got married and I moved to Pensacola to work with GE Renewables making commercial wind turbines.

We get back to the area every few years to see my son in Flagstaff and spend some time hiking the red rocks in Sedona.

Enjoy! Life is good!

@scissorunner Awesome. Don Cheek from the Cheektones is still around town. Not sure if they are booking gigs due to Covid.  Commercial wind turbines: Very interesting. I drive by the windfarms on I40 frequently. Those things are massive, especially when you see one blade on a specially outfitted semi truck. 🙂
