the steamcopter prototype first flight

Steamcopter prototype first flight

I guess I am in a creative phase :)
After creating my first own outfit, I have started building a few objects. I have built an object which is the core of my Christmas presents, so, for the moment, it must remain undisclosed, and today I made my own steamcopter fly for the very first time. Just a very first flyby around my airbase and over the runway in the sky over Winterfell Ebonshire but it was enough to test the opensource script I am using and my first customizations to it.

Well ... so far so good. I was able to steer, I did not crash and I was able to get back to the starting point, so I am happy and I can move to the next steps. The toy is not yet ready to be distributed, but I hope to have a beta available in a few days to distribute to a couple of beta testers (should I find any volunteers :) )

I started building the steamcopter to be used as a shuttle between Star Port and the airbase but since I found the opensource script and since I like the look, I think it may be used also as a standalone vehicle.

Stay tuned for the updates :)

Beta testers? Did someone say beta testers? Sign me up. I love new toys!
Seriously, this looks great. You are in a very creative building and scripting phase right now. It is nice to see you enjoying it!

PS: It is snowing LIGHTLY over here at the moment -- I hope it REALLY snows A LOT-- and sticks -- Anyway -- I mention it cuz it is so cute- Blueberry is on the window sill watching the snow fall -- I wonder what she thinks it is ? She is very interested in it. Maybe she thinks it is a bunch of white moths or something. (giggles) Oh crud -- it stopped -- that was WAYYYYY too short. I hope we get some more. (Comeon SNOW!!!!!)
