This past Monday was my 33rd birthday. I got some good loot. Some cash, a horse head mask (hopefully pictures of that soon), a book, a pinata filled with candy, and an ultra-micro RC airplane called the Night Vapor.
Here's the Night Vapor.
It's a very small little plane, and it weighs next to nothing. The lights on it are very bright, and it's designed to be flown in little to no light, and pretty much no wind.
Well, the last couple of nights have been pretty still, so I have flown two batteries through it each night.
What an incredible little machine.
It's slow so it's easy to control, it's EXTREMELY quiet so there's no reason to worry about the noise, it's bright so it's easy to see even when it's kind of dark, and it's just ideal to fly around.
It's very relaxing, and I've been trying to do some things to reduce some stress in my life since I got back from vacation. Even though it was only about 45 degrees each night, I stood out in the street for the better part of 30 minutes each night with the biggest grin on my face.
I can't wait for it to get a bit warmer outside. I'm going to grab a lawn chair, a drink, and just hang out in the driveway flying this thing around. It's a very interesting experience, and I'm loving every second of it!!
