Went to the RI Mini Makers Faire yesterday. It was smaller than last year but still had some very cool makers. Really looking forward to going to the NYC Makers Faire.My favorite was a RC tricopter that was made by Bob Desmarais. It is detailed on rcgroups.com. The current version to make the tricopter is around $140 for parts which is amazingly inexpensive compared to just a couple years ago. Key components like the gyros, brushless motors and motor controllers have dropped in price greatly. This is defintely on my list of things to make!Really enjoyed seeing the custom bicycles and motor-bicycles. There was a hexapod robot but didn't see it run. Also there were several makerbots.
