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.

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!

This video is my submission for the www.fpv-depot.com sponsorship contest. I chose it because it's a totally average flight for me. I wasn't *trying* to do anything great when I filmed it, I wasn't trying to fly perfectly. I was just having a good time flying, which is what FPV is all about to me.

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.

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.

This is the highly demanded part two of how to do the Fridrich F2L on a rubik's cube. This time it mainly focuses on how to solve the last slot of the F2L. And so people stop asking me, the cube is a white DIY from cubefans on ebay.

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.

A cycle of 3 edges, 2 of which are incorrectly oriented. Basically it's just the same thing as the last alg, with a double turn to start things out

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 ____"

Thrawst doesn't know what he's talking about in his tutorial, so I sent him a PM ranting about it. He invited me to turn it into a video response, so I did. I think the response is pretty stupid. I barely planned it out, and I have a massive headache while filming it. The only reason I did it was because Erik made me.

Title says it all. There are 2 basic algs for this, plus the parity. If you get adjacent edges, do R U R' to set them up as opposites, solve them, then undo the setup.

Now with music!! This is a band I just discovered at a show I went to the other night, I think they are sick. If you mute this video, you are retarded.

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!

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.
