K4 LL Tutorial 6 of 6: Example Solve
I solve the LL to show yall how it works. Note that I just got lucky when it came to using a Fridrich OLL alg to orient everything, usually I would solve the corners and then go for whatever edges take the least amount of work.

Take Flight
This is some footage from August that I've been sitting on for a while. Life got busy and I never got around to editing it... Anywho, I got to chase planes thanks to a last minute invite from a friend who flies at the local AMA field. I originally only had 3 batteries charged up, but there was a nice guy there who let me plug in to his generator. Thanks to him, I got to fly 10 packs or so, chasing planes the whole time. Let me just say that it's not easy keeping up with these things with a mini quad. Most of the time the planes were flying at 1/4 throttle or less and I was struggling to keep up. If you ever have the opportunity to chase planes, do it!!!

4x4x4 rubik's cube solve, K4 method
I use K4 to solve my 4x4. K4 owns. To stop the confusion, K4 is NOT the method where you build centers, edges, and then solve it like a 3x3. K4 is basically an intuitive method where you solve two centers, work on the D layer, finish centers, then insert edges one at a time. The last layer is solved using commutators.

Joshua Bardwell recently put out a video with little to no propwash, and linked to a forum post from Boris B talking about how to do that with Betaflight. I took the quad out, got rid of most of my filtering, and retuned it. As you can see, it takes a LOT of effort to get propwash now. Like, a split S done perfectly vertically at high speed is pretty much what it takes now. Also, my quad feels completely different on the sticks now. Everything is so locked in, so precise... it's amazing what getting rid of all the filters did for me.

Beginner's Petrus Method Tutorial: Basic Block Building
In this video we cover some basic block building techniques that allow us to complete steps 1 and 2 of the Petrus method. Keep in mind that these steps are easily the hardest part of the Petrus method for new users to learn, especially new cubers. Keep practicing! It takes lots of practice to begin seeing blocks the way I do. If you have any questions, leave me a comment!

Mefferts 4x4, Unboxing
I just got this thing a few days ago, and I figured I would make my first ever "unboxing" style video. Sorry I didn't upload till now, but I've been busy. The cube, as you may have figured, is much more broken in, and works amazingly. I need to get some stickers on it though, instead of those ugly tiles. I think they actually slow my recognition down, as well as the slightly larger size of the cube. Either way, I've been averaging 1:30s, so Cumberland is gonna be fun this weekend.

How to solve a Rubik's Snake
This is for those of you who can't figure out how to solve the snake on your own. Note that this puzzle is also called the rubik's twist. EDIT: This is the way most speed cubers solve the snake. There is no official "solved" state, the whole point of the puzzle is to just play with it.

This is a super old video of a method I don't use/recommend anymore. I'm leaving it up because, hey, it's an old video and brings back memories. But seriously, I sound like a cocky jerk in this video. I'm glad I'm not a little kid anymore.

Gainer into Pool
I did a few off the diving board, then went for some off the side of the pool. The runup was short, and I had to make sure my feet/the deck was dry the entire time, or I would end up slipping. I wish I had more time to practice these, I might be able to start learning them on flat. Oh yeah, the vid was taken in the summer, in case you haven't figured.

HTC Droid Incredible Vibration Fix
Lots of people have had problems with Droid phones where the vibration function simply stops working on incoming texts. This is NOT a hardware issue, as the phone will still vibrate for anything else. The app I have installed is called "Sound Manager," and is the only app that allowed my phone to start vibrating again.

Trampoline Double Frontflip attempt
I have just started trying these on my feet (I used to bounce off my knees to try it) and this is the closest I have gotten. Special thanks to Andrew for support, Damaris for help with the flip, and Dad for filming =) UPDATE: Check out my other video, I actually landed it!
Views: 3250 fallofshadows FPV
Because people have found nothing better to do than argue over small technicalities that I really don't care about, I'm not giving this trick a name over than a flip, cause nobody can argue that my body flips over... actually, some probably could, but that'd be a huge waste of time. Special thanks to anyone who has commented nicely on this video with something other than, "No, it's called a ____"
