After reading my last post I realized that I forgot to put specs on the RC circuit (not radio control). The resistors are 1/2 watt 4.7k ohm resistors and the capacitors are 50v 1uf capacitors. Just in case you missed it the RC circuit is required for the arduino to talk or control the chair with out the chair controller dumping. Continue reading →

I have played with RC for a long time, of course when I was a kid I had those cheap-o K-mart RC cars. I got my first job when I was 12 or 13 and I saved up for an RC boat called the Nitro Viper GT, I didn't get to play with it much because I was in southern Arizona and finding enough water to run the thing was a little hard to come by. A few years ago I got into RC helicopters. I was always fascinated by helicopters then in the military I worked on the APACHE helicopter so it came pretty natural. I started with a cheap-o double horse RC heli then upgraded to a large Walkera 400d. I also added a few smaller LM180d01 and LM130d01 helicopters to my collection. I will talk about all these and review them later. So yesterday I got a new toy, Continue reading →

Hello my name is GunGeek and I have a confession to make, I am a Gun Geek. I am an avid Second Amendment supporter and enthusiast and I have worked in the firearms industry for over 7 years and am one of those lucky people who love what I do. I am also a HUGE geek, I love technology, I am proficient in Home theater design, computer repair, computer programming, HTML, PHP, CSS, VB, console-PC gaming (sorry xbox people but not Xbox), and I am just forcing myself to learn C#.
