    No but it was initially chilly. But after a while the sun came out and it was very nice out there. I always have a great time but it can always be better if the wind doesn't blow. It causes me to either set anchor or work the trolling motor like crazy to keep in place. If I had $2000 to blow, I would get a GPS guided troller. It will keep the boat in one spot.

    I also worked on my aerator timer control. I built it from an arduino pro mini, relay board, and re-purposed car charger. The original timer doesn't work any more and a new one is $40. I had this stuff already and all I needed to do is write the code for the board to work its magic. 3 selections: 1- aerator on 1 minute off 10, 2- on 1 minute off 7, 3- on 1 minute off 5. This will keep different amounts of fish alive by supplying them with fresh water. Ex: 5 fish will not need fresh water as often as 30 fish.

    I actually didn't write the code. I wanted to learn how but a guy posted an awesome sketch that works just as intended.

    Keith that helicopter looks and sounds great. I think you should put it in the helicopter section in its own thread though. You will get a few more views on it there. Not many people check in the lounge.

    Almost gave someone a traumatic life experience. I don't feel the least bit guilty either.

    Today is all about getting this studio back in a somewhat presentable appearance. It is completely destroyed right now with boxes and clutter. I'm about to go insane in here! And, I want to restart an old project and FINISH IT!!
