    This past weekend was the first flight with an Autel Robotics X-Star Premium. After a couple of hard landings that turned it into a weed whacker, a successful flight and photos along with a safe landing ended the learning for the day.

  • Film – Meru (2015)

  • Movie – Oblivion

    This is somewhat of a belated review of the movie “Oblivion” starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, and Andrea Riseborough that was released in 2013.

  • Movie Review – Edge of Tomorrow

    I saw this movie over the weekend and overall thought it was good, 7 to 8 out of 10 stars. Definitely a mishmash of many movies, but the plot is somewhat unique.  There is also an edge of humor, especially around the fact that Tom Cruises’ character keeps getting killed in different ways, and the…

  • Enra – Pleiades

    A cherographed music, dance, and light number that truly is an extension, a bridge from here to where we came from. A beautiful peace that amazed me with how the dancers interacted with the light and the story being told. More information at http://enra.jp
