still wanna retrofit a dji drone with a micro series hybrid setup where i have an onboard RC nitro engine spinning a permanent magnet generator to provide power for the rest of the unit

one could kill the gas engine then restart it later by just pulsing some current through the generator which would turn it into a starter motor for a sec

A console whose premier launch title included the game that a father wrote to help deal with their young child's terminal cancer (:siren: don't click if this kind of thing will gently caress up your whole day, seriously :siren:)

I honestly think it was really important and good that this was made and the story could be told, but making it a launch title on a new gaming platform seems like an incredibly poor decision.

chirp is a necessity for configuration management for these radios

there is no way I'm going to manually reprogram 12 stations if I lose my settings. even just two is a real pain

if you cant find a loaner get one of the 6- or 8-in-one cables. theyll program fuckin everything (its all 5v ttl serial for the most part just diff pinouts)

https://www.amazon.com/AOER-Programming-Motorola-Quansheng-Weierwei/dp/B0777DPV2J/ref=sr_1_3

i keep a couple around

if you're feelin froggy and have a 5v TTL to USB thing lying around from programming an arduino or whatever you can find the pinout and wire it up cheap
