For our 111th installment, this week it's just me, but I have a guest in the workshop! My friend John joins me and we discuss our custom Wii MultiCopter Interconnect board. As you probably know, this board goes far to tame the wiring mess that is inherent in the Flight Stabilization System for our Multi-Rotor projects, and we've already shared the necessary files so that you can order them yourselves. However, if you do not want to order the minimum order of three boards from the manufacturer, we will start coordinating group orders this week so you can order less than three - be watching for the article to pop up on AllThingsCrash this week with instructions on how you can get in on this!
Albeit a bit somber, I take an opportunity to say goodbye to my dear friend Dennis who lost his fight with Cancer last week. If you would like to send a card or letter to his wife Anne, please email me and I'll provide her address. You can also share your kind thoughts on the Online Memory Book, as I am certain that the family would find it uplifting to hear from all of Dennis' online friends.
