I've been making fun gadgets since childhood. I know how to make anything out of recycled stuff. So ask me anything on DIY gadgets.

Currently I'm busy salvaging parts for a DIY multifunction drone. I have been meaning to make this for a long time. But I keep getting delayed for personal reasons. The base design is complete. But the prototype I made a few days ago blew up after 5 minutes of flight. So I'm making improvements to the model. Hopefully it'll be done within two months.
