  • It’s totally normal to be nervous, but I can only say one thing about that: go for it!

    I understand you can be afraid because of your age, but life is too short to let a good opportunity fly away. If it’s too hard, you can stop, but at least you try, and I bet you’ll learn something in the process.

    Capoiera looks very fun, I never try…Read More

    • I’m definitely down for this, can you post a example of it though? Your description is good but I will get the idea better by looking at it.

  • Don’t use gyro and/or accel in chucks, it’s not a good idea.
    I already worked around this, and you definitely can’t use gyro/accel, because there is too much movement, to much information without any sense.

    By the way, I found something more interesting: vibration sensor https://www.adafruit.com/product/1766

    there is 3 variation, for easy,…Read More

  • Thanks, and yes, when I will reach the next step, I will show the result of course 😉
    Something like that are better shared than hide.
    If someone want more details on any part of this project, don’t hesitate, promised won’t bite 😉

    • Right on! I have wanted to get into some similiar things, thats great your sharing what youve learned. I have been contemplating looking into putting
      Accelerometer and gyro inside a set of chucks. I havent coded or worked much with arduino stuff but I did start dabbling with drones and flight control boards a little bit last year and was…Read More

          there is 3 variation, for easy, medium and hard trigger, and it will be much better. I can’t buy these right now, I have enough wire soldering to do, but clearly it’s my next move.

    • Othy this is awesome! Please keep up informed with your new prototypes!

  • Depends on which type of flight, imo, because it can vary if you’re travelling inside a country, or outside. For exemple, in some European Country, like France, even in a checked bag, nunchakus are forbidden, even knife, bottles bigger than 1.5 L, etc, and even if you’re coming from another country. In south America, like Peru or Agentina, it’s…Read More
