So I’m mostly posting these instructions for my own benefit, but maybe someone else will find them useful too. Do...

Instead of getting rid of them entirely, I’ve started sticking them in collapsible elements so that you don’t get completely overwhelmed by my wit and brilliance. Like this: I guess you could also just skip over those elements entirely since there’...

So you want to build a robot? It all started when I decided I was going to build a quadcopter. But not just any quadcopter, I was going to get all the parts and put it together myself! And then I was going to write the flight control system (in Rust, of course) so that it could fly autonomously and do tasks for me, like flying over to the front door to see who just rang my doorbell.
