Cool. By the way, it's been five years since the original post and almost all that I predicted has come to pass. There's still no real-time remote tourism, but that could easily be achieved now if desired. All the tech is in place.

Re: Real-Time Google Earth? Give me 5 years.

I'm getting nice speed with 4S (4x3.2V) and running 0645 props with 2600kv motors (6" with a 4.5" pitch)

Re: The Re-Imagined Badger is Back

Yea, it really needs a mechanical lift. Who wants to kickback in some kind of "futuristic leisure", yet is required to climb a 20 foot vertical ladder of 1" steel rods?

Re: Accelerator

Thanks for the conversion. It's as you say, I see the imperial system more clearly, but slowly, over the past decade or so, becoming more "hard wired" to metric.

Obviously Lexus did not get a sample of scrap from the mid 70's distribution treaty.

Re: Accelerator

Working through the amazing EXPANSE series done by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. Soon to be given moderately high budget attention by the Sci-Fy channel. It made me recall this thread where I offered an Excel file to calculate the times. . . Anyway, the storyline in the series is primarily based on ...

Re: Breaking: Battlezone licensed for... Pixels?

Speaking of legal challenges, once Warner Bros ever gets around to producing Ernest Cline's 'Ready Player One', the licensing phase will be a nightmare. The novel specifically mentions and "uses" tons of old 80's games.

Re: The Re-Imagined Badger is Back

If anyone has read through this thread and particularly the first post, they'll know I went to some lengths to bring the turret in the BZ universe as close as I could to real science and hard sci-fi while still attempting to keep with the turret's functionality. It was fairly difficult because when ...

Re: Off-topic (was Battlezone 3 RANT)

I don't think that religious belief has one single basis. It is the culmination of fear of death, the desire to belong, the wish to understand the universe, the desire for guidance, the desire to feel as though there is hope and many other factors. +1 . . . exactly. And that overrides all logic and...

Re: Off-topic (was Battlezone 3 RANT)

All I'm saying is the 'conjecture' has to be falsifiable. Dogmas and religions are not. That is why this planet has had tens of thousands of them and currently hundreds. The religious belief a person has, 98% of the time, is dependent on when and where they were born and their parents. 700 BC, livin...

Re: Off-topic (was Battlezone 3 RANT)

There's certainly allot of sensitive people in this forum. The reactions say allot more than the original content, and thank goodness, they were painfully too long to read.
