Weekly Miscellanea

Miscellaneous things this week:
  • reversing a servo internally. tldr: reverse outside pair of three wires, reverse motor wires
  • EasyCAP USB video input.  Good for FPV video capture, $9.  Several other models available. Mac software here and here.   I've got one on order, I'll review it when I get it.
  • quad safety tip: toss a towel over the blades to stop them or keep them from spinning up.
  • Ali Shan Mao flew the tiny QR LadyBird quad.  Object of intense desire!!
  • Ecilop camera mount.  Fully sprung, uses battery as a counterweight.  Nifty!
  • Repairing planes with Instamorph shapable plastic.
  • Scotch Fasteners for mounting gyros.
