Random Fukuoka Impressions

The first day exploring Fukuoka held so many amazing impressions, I hardly know where to start.

After some amazing pancake breakfast at Hakata Station – the main train station and largest shopping mall in Fukuoka – we started hitting up random places using mostly subway trains and busses. As one might expect from the Japanese, singns are extraordinarily easy to read even when you don’t remember the Kanji. Everything is color-coded and logically arranged.

First impressions from Fukuoka, Japan

We arrived in Fukuoka (Japan) yesterday in the evening, and in return for the long travel in an overcrowded 747-8i we got some astonishing views on Fukuoka City from the Hilton Sea Hawk Hotel, which will be our new home for the next 5 days.

Fukuoka City is one of the largest cities in Japan. Being the city with the youngest population in the whole country, it’s known for its many shopping and nightlife districts, and of course for its many opportunities to enjoy Yatai, japanese street food.

So, our first and last destination for the day was Ichiran, said to be the #1 traditional street-food style Ramen spot in Fukuoka. As you can see i’m pretty tired after 24 hours of being on planes and airports, so we’ll fully begin exploring the city tomorrow.

Ichiran! The ichiban ramen spot!

dolphin in the game

hey guys want to post an update to my newest creation -the dolphin. Complete redesigned frame out of carbonfibre. Native 6″ props but smaller sizes are ok too. More sturdy than the eachine itself, flight times with 2200mAh battery >10min. There will also fit a gopro session 5 nativly inside the frame with all safety requirements in case of a crash. The rods are now outside the frame based next to the sideplate which helps a lot for adjusting the arms. There is no reason for worries because the position is quite good for the worst case. The servo is upgraded to a 9,8kg servo which is more heavy but much more sturdy. nearly everythin is based inside the case also the vtx changed position not to get killed while having a bad situation.

The whole setup weights in at 530gr without battery but with the gopro. Don´t blame me for the motor wires, they will get shortened down as soon all the setting are done.

My dolphin is a beast…
