RC Help?

RC Help? 2 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey everybody, I've got a university project due Monday and we just screwed up badly. Basically it's a RC Blimp, problem is we have two drive motors, and we managed to burn out one of the ESC's. Since it's too late to get a replacement shipped, I need to know if I can head to the local hobby shop and get an ESC that doesn't match the working one. Will I get the same motor performance out of both? Thanks

Hey /diy/, We cleaned out some old stock at work, and since I hate throwing away perfectly fine garbage that looks like it has some diy potential, I brought some stuff home with me. Amongst it was this thingy with a vacuum tube, and I was wondering if any of you might know of something I could do with it? I know my way around basic tools, and love sciency stuff, if that helps. Something else I salvaged and that seems interesting is the polarizing layers from a laptop screen, so if you know something I can do with that, please share! On a sidenote, is there an easy way to make a spark, besides a bbq lighter? Thanks in advance!

My friend of many years is... 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
My friend of many years is going off in summer to work in Europe (we live in America). Ever since we were in high school we always used to drink at a really foresty woodland deep inside a park trail. As we got older more teenagers came to that spot, but we always felt that we were the forerunners of it. He's leaving and we're throwing one last party for him. My other friends and I pooled together about 500 for everything with 365 of it going to drinks and what not. I'd say the area of this spot is about 20 meters by 15 meters. Since we'll have some money left over are there any cheap ways to make the outdoor place more comfortable from bugs and the elements? I wanna give him a good party

Arduino

Arduino 9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Teaching myself to work with Arduinos. Anyone have any tips or links to good tutorials? Maybe a vocabulary reference? I understand the concept of the global statements and the void loops and whatnot, but the massive amount of terms are killing me. I've never really done coding, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey /diy/ is this repairable at all. My headset recently broke but thankfully it still functions but its becoming a nuisance to deal with as the adjuster will slide off with a slight motion.
Hello DIYI need some advice... 18 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello DIY I need some advice regarding landcaping in a forest. I want to plant some beatiful looking plants that can survive all year. I also realize that the forest floor is not very good for most plants. The plan so far is to throw some dirt from a garden center on the forest floor and stick some plants into it. But i also have some doubts it will work. Climate is norwegian coast with absolute lowest temperature of -10°c. What should i do?

DNC software not properly sending files

DNC software not properly... 4 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm using Cimco DNC to send programs to my CNC machines. Every time I try to send it, it throws an 085 or an 087 alarm. 085 is basically telling me my settings (baudrate, input bits, and/or I/O fault) are incorrect. 087 basically says my I/O unit is defective because it's overflowing my machine with information, which doesn't make sense since i'm using xOn/xOff I'm using Fanuc controls and windows 7 32bit (x86) OS. I/O = 1, CNC baud rate = 9600 The I/O RS-232 cord is fine, it works with the other computer. I'm pretty lost when it comes to this stuff, and there aren't many resources out there to help me. any insight would help me immensely
