I saw my first UAV drone fly over yesterday. It had to have been a government one because of the size. It flew over below the 500 foot level and made a distinctive buzzing sound.
I can't express the mix of emotions I had when I saw it but the biggest one was anger. It was like I was watching the beginning of every scifi movie where the government takes over and implements martial law.
I think I'm going to go have a chocolate donut now...
Mashblock - sorry I missed the one post about the electric motor for my air compressor. I am looking at one on Grizzly for about $160 shipped but haven't pulled the trigger yet. What I'm looking for is a 1500 - 1700 rpm, 110V AC, 1HP or better motor in either clockwise or reversible form. Shaft doesn't matter too much because I'm putting a belt pully on it. I priced rewinding locally - $400 minimum. So much for a renewable society eh?
*heads off to nom a chocolate donut*
