Just wanted to drop by and say "hi" I just ordered and expect delivery soon of my first few Arduino items. Just finished reading two books including one by one of the developers of Arduino.
Excited to get started.
My first adventures into computers started "way back" with a Timex computer that ran on a Z80 chip and plugged into a TV for monitor. Used audio cassette for data storage. Programmed in BASIC. I added option 16K of RAM and thought that was huge!
I also had early RC Helicopter...really wish Arduino was around then to add gyro etc. for stabilization etc. Looking to eventually revisit RC Helicopter...perhaps quad rotor?
Also working on a hover craft and at some point a CNC machine (Arduino) for laser cutting and engraving.
