Introducing – My New Hobby! QUADCOPTERS

I’m not all work, hell no – one has to enjoy all the money they make from affiliate marketing. I hope you have some fun too!

One of my newest hobbies are QUADCOPTERS. The quadcopter bug bit me 3 months ago, when I picked up a cheap 30 dollar model.

Here’s my first quadcopter:

Syma X4 4 Channel 2.4GHz RC Pioneer Quad Copter w/ Gyro [Buy for $30 on Amazon]

This one was a pain in the ass to fly because its so light weight if there’s any bit of wind you can’t really fly it that well.  It doesn’t have auto hover, and the controls are ultra sensitive.    Was a great learning quad,  which I was able to master to a level where I could fly it pretty well controlled in indoor spaces.

That’s it, it was time to get a bigger, better quad copter, so next I ordered one of these bad boys with a camera [or so I thought it was a bad boy]

My second quadcopter…    H8C 2.4G 4CH 6Axis Gyro RC HD 2MP Camera Quadcopter Explorers Drone – $60 bucks [Amazon link]

I have to say this is pretty bad ass when it comes to flying and fun factor.  The camera kind of sucks, but it does make some OK aerial shots.  The coolest thing I liked about it is the flashing NEON lights.  My son says this is the POLICE COPTER.   Because they do flash red/blue/white on the sides.       I abused it so much, I killed one of the motors and now waiting for replacement motors to arrive from China I had to order.     While I wait I went out and bought another Quad Copter …

 

My 3rd  is the Syma X5C-1 Available for $60.20 on Amazon [I bought it here]

Now this quad copter has a wayyy better camera.  I also ordered bunch of extra batteries because one lasts arounds 6-7 minutes.

 

So there you have it, my new hobby and my flying machines.   These are beginner/entry level quads that are relatively cheap.  But if you want to have a whole lot of fun, this is the best bang for your buck without a doubt.

I highly recommend these,   if you are looking for more pro quads, stay tunes as I just put in my pre order for the new Phantom 3 quad copter, here’s their promo video.. it’s going to be EPIC to fly!!

WOW! This is amazing! Or so I think, what do You think?

Christmas Music Selection for 2014

Christmas is only 4 days away from today, I can’t believe how time flies. This year has went by faster than I can say Estacionamento (that means Parking in Portuguese if you are wondering). We are almost in 2015, with only 10 days left and Christmas being right around the corner, it’s time to relax a bit, stop working so hard, and let the joy of the holiday season in.

For me personally, nothing works greater than listening to good Xmas music. Here’s a selection of the 12 songs of Christmas I’ve picked just for you guys.

Wishing all my readers peace and love this holiday season. May you feel the joy in your home that you bring to me visiting this site.

[Movie Review] LUCY with Scarlett Johansson

I’m a big time fan of sci fi, futuristic movies and waited for a while for LUCY to finally show up in HD quality so I could watch it.   Let me tell you, even though this movie is only around 90 minutes long, it is simply awesome.     The whole plot was interesting enough, and the fact that they talk about how people’s use only 10% of their brain, dolphins use upwards of 20% and what would happen if men would start using 100% of their brain blew me away.     They illustrated what an increment of 10% different in the human cerebral cortex would mean quite well and I was left with a WOW after watching this movie.

Only thing I didn’t like was the cheap splash screens showing the advancement in brain usage, and other cheap effects cut in among the amazing CG effects.  It looks as if the production ran out of budget and they decided to skip quality and throw in bunch of crappy solutions just to get the movie done.

Also, the speed at which the plot unfolded was too fast,  as if everything was rushed – they could’ve done a lot more by adding 30 more minutes.  For example the beginning,  there wasn’t much idea as to where she came from what she is and who her friend is – Lucy was just thrown at the midst of the Korean gangsters by some dude we had no clue who he was.

Anyway not bad, here’s the trailer, check it out

DIY Standing Desk… In case your Back Hurts like mine did!

Standing desks are all the hype, and they serve a great purpose for us computer nerds who can’t get off the computer.  Well,  I don’t have one at home and since I’ve been pretty sick this past week sitting on a shitty chair really started killing my back.     Quick out of the box thinking,  and DIY magic and Voila!!     The Do-It-Yourself Standing Desk was Born!

PS: This is just a joke obviously :)  Nevertheless,   an out of the box solution.
