Well all of my creations have so far never taken off from the paper yet, I guess in many ways they are dreams in the making, However after observing and learning from my better half, I have finally decided to start bringing out my creations to this plane of existance. My current project and most ambitious one is to build an eight foot remote control warship with an OOpic as the main processor to control devices such as turret guns, missiles ( they actually fire small rockets, as the ones use in model rocketry) pumps, lights, a small X10 camera, two way radio and various search lights. I have an extensive background on electronics and mechanical design, which I hope will help me with this project. This particular project has forced me to research many fields, with time I hope to make this knowledge available to everyone.

is being a long time since i started this project. It had to go in the back burner for a while because of personal issues, but I am back on business now. the upper structure is ready to be build in two more days...i have an operable missile launch platform and working on a gun design to fire pellets from a working turret.
More to come!
The sensor array was tricky but at last it works perfectly, the hull for the ship will be fitted with this sensors next week, in the meantime the X10 camera and the servos needed for its movements will be experiment with today.
Today I start Laying out the sensor array system for my project. This will enable my processor to be aware of water levels inside the hull of my ship and thus turning on the proper pumps to dispose of the excess water.
