Sibley Iowa's BEST OLD STEAM LOCOMOTIVE VIDEO 2008 PART 1
This is Part 1. Part 2 is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIB6b0HPTXI American Locomotive Company's Largest Operating Steam Locomotive passed through Sibley Iowa today, Oct 1, 2008 "Challenger" (No.3985) is on a 1,750 mile, 5 state tour that will end back in St. Paul Minnesota, where it began 16 days ago. It was built in 1943, and it was an amazing machine to watch, as you will see in this video. Here is the link for the Specs and history http://www.uprr.com/aboutup/excurs/up3985.shtml We felt like we were in the old days of Bonnie and Clyde or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid. It was exciting and we hope you enjoy this wild ride with us. One of the neatest websites from Union Pacific is this one on how the "Big boy" steam locomotive engines work with a virtual interactive steam locomotive to watch. Very neat to visit here. http://www.geocities.com/upbbloco/ Please subscribe and pass on this video to any train buffs you may know. Coins have been put on rails for years. IN fact you can go to the train Museum in Sacramento and buy a FLATTENED Penny with a symbol of a train on it. ALSO, NEVER in history has a train ever been de-railed by a coin! Especially a 1.08 Million LB train! IN fact you can get one FLATTENED with a train Symbol on it at the Train Museum in Sacramento, California, it is such a common thing. Thanks to Ilea "Bonnie" for the great driving, and thanks to you the viewers for watching. Best regards, "Bonnie and Clyde"
Eject and fly a Quad from a plane? How? New Challenge accepted! Did it work?
*Suggested by a viewer in response to my airplane launching from a quad video, (See link Below) was to now to launch a QUAD from a PLANE! This was more complicated than the Quad drop, and, had me thinking of all the things that could go wrong! So of course, you know I had to try it anyway! I used my CX31 Cheerson http://goo.gl/xK4PTB and HK Skipper with lights. It was fun. Thanks a lot for the suggestion from Z.M.L Channel and thanks a lot to all of you who watched. See the launching of the Twin RC Dehavilland bomber from the Blade 350 Quadcopter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34xsk6_0ahM Happy flying.

Buck Volt regulator is Handy Gadget for under $10, Step Down LED Driver product review.
*Please Read. (SPECS below) Here is my quick set up and usage tips. One of my Freego, China Segways runs on 72 volts and have no stock lights. The others run on 36v, but do have their own lights. I needed something quick and inexpensive to convert ½ of the 72 v battery of 36 volts to run 12 v LED Lights. This Drok LM 2596 Buck Volt Regulator tells input voltage, output current, has a USB Charger, and works perfect. I do not typically read reviews when I do a project, so not to be biased. My findings are strictly my own. Sometimes I will read reviews after I make mine. In this case I did, and found one fellow said the case does not have the legs cut right. Okay, there are no instructions and the case is a puzzle. Each piece which is precision cut will only fit one way. So turning inside out, upside down, until you get it takes some patience. All complain there are no instructions, which is true, but if a person was going to use this, he would easily figure out from the picture and the printing of how to make it work. Hopefully my video will give you an insight of what you can do with this neat gadget that costs under $10. DROK® LM2596 DC Buck Volt Regulator 36V to 24V 12V 5V 3.3V 3V Converters Constant Voltage & Current 5-36V to 1.25-32V 5A 75W Parameters: Input voltage : 5-36V Output voltage :1.25-32V (continuously adjustable, default output 17V.) Output Current : 5A MAX( Please use it within 4.5A) Output Power: Max 75W ( Please use it within 50W. if the pressure difference is big,please reduce power) Operating temperature: -40 to +85 ° C Operating frequency: 180KHz Conversion efficiency : up to 96% Short circuit protection: Yes Over temperature protection: (automatically shut off the output after over temperature) Input reverse polarity protection: No, (if necessary, please in input String into high current diode) Installation: 4pcs 3mm screws Wiring:(solder terminals) V-IN is the input, V-OUT is the output Usage: 1. Use as an ordinary buck module with over current protection capabilities; 2. Use as a battery charger; 3. Use it as a constant current LED driver module. Note: 1. If the module can not be adjusted, the output voltage is always equal to the input voltage." When you encounter this problem, please counterclockwise rotation of the potentiometer 10 laps or more, then you can adjust the output voltage. Because the factory default output voltage is 17V. 2.Module output terminal string has a current sampling resistor, there will be 0-0.2V voltage drop after connected to the load, it is a normal phenomenon. 3..If its output is more than 3A/35W, please enhance heat dissipation! Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed the flights Dave Herbert AMA L-8221 LM/CD/Scientific Division Drok Products, http://www.droking.com Academy of Model Aeronautics.

Rocket Assisted, Wing Sweeping, F-3 Tornado Jet test flights.
*Enjoy more of our Shenanigans, as Jeff and I launch the F-3 Tornado with wing sweep off the launch ramp and runway, with 6 cameras catching all the action. That "Full Speed Blast" is fun to fly! Very exciting! Then the rocket quits and your dragging along with almost full up! We learned a few things, and had an absolute ball doing it. Everything is green and we are miles from anything that could burn, or we would not have done this experiment, as with any rocket activity. This is wide open country and perfect for rockets which launched, burn out within a few seconds, and smoke, but are designed to not be able to start a fire. Igniting it while out of the plane is not recommended, as you saw, so make sure your motors are faily snug if using launch tubes. I also launched a Blade 350 Camera Drone to see what’s going on from above and have launch video from 5 other cameras too. Here is the link to the first Tornado Video Product review I made a few years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JI6hAcvXj_Y Thanks for watching!
