Automation Circuit work

I have decided to add a circuit to the droid that will automate the dome and sound system. Mike Senna built a beauty that I wanted to copy. So I got all the goods and went over to Mike's. He was nice enough to build up the circuit for me...

And of course I had to "Pay" Mike for all this work...

Victor was there building another circuit for his 2nd droid.

Mike finished the work and we tested in the droid, worked like a charm!
I have to get the circuit installed in it's final resting place, then we will have actual droid automation! Thanks to Mike and Victor for all the work and great ideas!

Walk Now for Autsim - Irvine

The 501st, Rebel Legion, Victor Franco and I worked the Annual Autism walk in Irvine. Again, the kids (and adults) loved all the costumes and droids.

Elizabeth, Victor, Allyssa (My Daughter) and I.





Great event! Raised a ton of cash and all the folks had a great time

R2-A1 1st Event

I was asked to bring my boy to Tim Knapp's son's school for an Annunciation Fund raiser.



Met up with the local Southern Californian Garrison 501st members for some photo ops.


Kids loved R2.....



2 was minding his own biz when all of a sudden Yoda pops up and starts yelling at him......



R2 is gonna get a complex if this keeps up!
