In this blog you will find posts about 🚁 FPV racing drones (building, repairing and flying), 💻 web development, 🏠 smart home automation, 👨🎓️ life-long learning, goals and stories as well as who knows what else in the future.
I write code, solve problems and sometimes stream on twitch. I love flying FPV drones, 3D printing, contributing to open source, and working on fpvtips.com.

Whether you are a seasoned fpv drone pilot or a person just getting started with this hobby, there always is a reason to fly in a quadcopter simulator.

Recently I had a very minor issue, however perfect candidate to be solved using 3D printing. I’m fairly new to 3D printing, only got my printer a couple of weeks ago and I do have some 3D modelling experience (mainly from working on hobby / school game projects, such as Maze Crawler or Rollin’ Shark from a few years ago). I use the awesome open source software Blender for my 3D…
