Our Maker Faire project for 2012, part of the Young Makers Program, is “The Viper” — a motion controlled flight simulator inspired by the ship of the same name from the SyFy Channel’s TV Series Battlestar Galactica. I just bought some great badges from you for the flightsuits for my son’s latest invention. Thanks for having great tech goodies and an inspiring collection of engineering quotes. If you’d like to see what 5 high school kids can do with some Arduinos, open source Flight gear software, an airplane fuselage, welded steel, and some electric motors, check out their project for the Bay Area Maker Faire: the VIPER flight simulator. Truly amazing! www.the-viper.org Cheers–a happy customer
