Gimme Xmas 2007

Gimme Xmas 2007

My birthday wish list was a bit excessive, I know, so here’s a much more reasonable xmas list. Some of these items will need to be mail ordered if you want to get exactly what I link to.

  • ($10-$20) I have a fairly useless 64 MB USB dongle. Something with 1GB or more would be much more useful and not very expensive.
  • ($35) I like helicopters. I’ve heard that the super micro helis like this are kind of fun and nearly indestructible. They’re also not very expensive. I don’t need this exact model, of course.
  • ($25-$200?) I want a really cheap and compact digital camera to strap on my helicopter to take aerial images. Ideally it would have a built-in intervalometer (like this one, but it is too much for what I’m thinking). I’d like it to have a movie mode, too. Otherwise, I’d like a really, truly cheap digital camera that I can strip down and wire it for remote trigger (I have a spare channel on my radio).
  • ($20) If you’d like to buy me a book, I’m getting interested in the Cold War. I’m currently reading a book about Nikita Khrushchev.
  • ($35) I’d like a cheap, durable foam flying wing. I actually already have nearly all the parts needed to put one together.
  • ($20) I’d like a new Cal baseball cap, size 7 1/4. My current one is getting old and grimy. Here is a picture of it from five years ago looking a bit cleaner (naturally).

There ya go. That ought to get you started.

  1. If it’s digital camera parts you want I think I can find some really cheap stuff here. Something that has an interval timer and a video mode I could also look into. But, the cheap Chinese stuff you get in China is even worse than the cheap Chinese stuff that gets sent across the ocean, so I’m not sure how many flights it would last you.
