Recently I’ve been interested in finding another medium complexity project to spend some evenings on, something in the complexity range of a decent ~100W bench power supply. However, I still haven’t been able to settle on an idea yet but have been itching to make some more PCBs. I have one on the way for a project that I’m working on with a friend, but that will be a whole other post/write-up in itself.
I had another chance to get a morning flight in before work last week, so I figured I’d take a quick flight up to Hope for some scenery. The weather was a bit cloudy with some rain enroute, but cleared up to be nice and sunny by the time we were back at CZBB. Unfortunately the Warrior wasn’t available, so the flight was done in a 152. I had almost forgotten how much louder and slower they are generally… Anyways here are some photos and a short clip for you to enjoy!
Since obtaining my PPL (private pilot license) in the summer of 2013, I’ve been looking for opportunities to get out for morning flights to enjoy the beautiful area around Vancouver. I had a friend and co-worker tell me about his recent flight to Powell River and I thought it would be a great opportunity for a morning flight before work! This flight also marks the first time I’ve tried the aviation app ForeFlight, in conjunction with a Bad Elf GPS Pro 2200.
After a not inconsiderable delay, I have finally documented enough of my AC motor controller project to post it to the website. It is a scalable, modular AC motor controller intended for EV applications and was also my capstone project for UBC electrical engineering. Enjoy! Check the project out here: AC Motor Controller
I’ve finished documenting the first project I’m going to list on the website - an engine monitor used to display engine parameters to the driver. It was completed a few years ago but I hadn’t bothered to document it anywhere so I figured it would be the logical first to go on the new website. Check it out here!
This marks the first post of the website! It’s finally up! I have been meaning to create this site for some time now and am glad to have it finally online. Currently there are just a couple of pages but I am in the process of documenting the first two projects I’ll be listing on the Projects page. Check back soon!
