Cobra action camera mount

Unfortunately, I haven’t posted about how my Cobra is legal now.  In the meantime, how about this.  I recently got a cheap action camera off of Amazon.  Works pretty well, and the video quality is decent.  However, I needed a way to mount it to the Cobra.  I stumbled across the bracket you see below […]

Busy, busy, busy

I’m loaded up pretty heavily on classes this semester.  I’m trying to finish up my BS in IS Management.  The workload as I get into 400 level classes has increased significantly.  I have a number of projects that have fallen to the side including: Learn and understand nRF24l01 radios for Arduino to RPi communication. Cobra […]

RN-XV, Arduino and funny characters

No, I’m not talking about myself. I’ve embarked on an ambitious project that is sure to never get completed. On my way there I’m working on getting an RN-XV “cheap” WiFi adapter talking to an Arduino. I’ve had all kinds of issues getting it connected and it all comes down to spaces. I’ll have more […]

Cobra update

Just in case anyone’s curious, no, I’ve not completely abandoned the Cobra build. The dash is in mid-build. I’ve just be…pre-occupied. It’ll get done, just don’t know when.

Cobra folks

I just discovered that I’m #1 for “cobra build” on Google.  Wow!  Except it’s for the old site.  The one I haven’t updated in years.  So, I’ve put in a redirect to the blog here and just to the Cobra related posts.  Please feel free to look around at the rest though. And yes, more […]

The energizer bunny…

…should be the only electric rabbit. I like to keep up with the goings on in the DIY electric car world.  Some day I hope to build one.  I’m waiting on a couple of things first though.  Mostly just trying to get through the multitudes of projects I’ve taken on at home but also so […]

Depressing moment

On the way into work this morning I had the thought that maybe it’s come time to sell the Cobra, or what there is of it.  Staring at it every time I walk through the garage is a little bit of torture.  Seeing the empty body shell peaking it’s nose out the main garage door […]

The busy time

We’re just about into that period where everything starts to get really crazy for the holidays.  I don’t really enjoy it so much.  It’s more a matter of trying to get through it without losing my mind.  Many parties to look forward to, gifts to buy, house to prepare. That’s at least a little of […]

Dashing my hopes

I was fortunate enough to be able to take the last week off from work.  Didn’t go anywhere and the kids were still in school.  But, I did have some time to work on the Cobra.  In a nutshell I got all of the wiring in wire loom and routed where it’ll go in the […]
