BEAM ONLINE - THE YAHOO OF BEAM



Well this is my first post to the journal! Over the next five weeks I'll take you through my personal experience in going to India for the 1998 BEAM Games. I hope you'll check back every few days as I go along in my journey. Note: As you will notice I am not a great writer so please bear with me ;-) I spent most of the day working on my web site (BEAM Online). I added chat and search functions and created the journal you are reading now. As far as BEAM goes I finished making the wing pattern on one of the wings on RoboFly II which will be competing in the Aesthetics category. It has a wing span of 8 1/2" and is turning out great. If you wondering about RoboFly I , it had a slight accident, my 500W halogen fell over and that was the end :-( I have added a photo and movie for your enjoyment :-) Another project I am working on is for the Class B Sumo (Autonomous) I'll have photos up in a later post. Only three more weeks till I leave! I'll be going to Pojoaque (were the BEAM team meets) on Saturday, since i'm the only one on the team (with the exception of one) that knows about electronics. I usually spend all my time running around helping five people at once on there projects and do my own building at home. So how'd I do?
