Back from vacation
Here in Luxembourg we get a one week vacation for Hallowe'en. Too bad I really hate vacations. They mess with my work schedule and habits. Today I really didn't get much done on the project because I've been taking care of frisbee stuff all day.

I've still got a little tidbit, though: the Plettenberg Predator. It's the motor I ordered, a 15HP motor in a 1.5kg package. It's probably not suitable to my specific task, but I plan to make a larger version of the motor if it really is as easy to build as it looks. It's an LRK motor, which is actually quite the elegant thing. It uses its construction to act like an electromagnetic gear box, reducing speed and increasing torque.
