What better way to start the week off than with a challenge... an FPV challenge!

Josh and Chad compete in a dart drop target challenge. Flying FPV, the RC pilot to drop the most flag darts in the target wins!

The 'darts' are lawn marker flags that can be found at most home improvement stores. Dropping these kind of darts can be dangerous, so don't try this at home.

The 3 point target is setup in a square ring formation, with a 1 point outer ring, 5 point mid-ring, and the 10 point bullseye.

WOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!! I'M A WINNER!!!!!

Thank you guy for choosing me as a beneficiary of such a cool challenge and prize pack! Awesome new stickers for my awesome new laptop!

Really, this is a well-needed pick-me-up after a horrible day in school. I spent my entire Sunday building a simple wind tunnel and airfoil test apparatus to give the kids a hands-on activity in relation to Bernoulli's Principle. Their behavior today reached a new low in disrespect. I have many kids who are so helpless that they freak out over having to calculate the volume of a sphere, given the equation AND the radius (for a buoyancy activity). All they have to do is punch in the numbers on a calculator. These are 9th graders! Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!!

And, to top it off, I took my new Wing Surfer out for a flight tonight and it is failing range check. Double Aaaarrrggghhhh!!!

Thanks! You definitely put a smile on my face! :D
