The history of Jake chap 11 ENGLISH
Char 11 - A Shock!
Jake was totally amazed with the ability of Arkani, besides the high power dissipated in the arc. How the arc don't went straight to the ground? Jake supposed it's a load equal to the polarity of the Earth, Negative. Thus, the arc would travel to find a positively charged body, such as air or clouds. More interesting is that the Dragon would be an open system because the electricity dissipates and doesn't return to the bodyas would be normally.
The defensive qualities of a true Dragon as Arkani have interesting practical applications. Jake naturally began to think which way would take advantage of the powerful arcs. It would take Arkani to a lab to test all electrical parameters of your body, plus the charge that could produce and for how long.
After a few weeks Jake thought to reverse the polarity of the current using high voltage thyristors and power diodes. Thus, the charge would be positive with respect to ground, allowing the convenient

Char 10 - The first words
Jake then decided fall asleep. In the next day he took out the parts of carbon fiber made in the printer and dipped them in a protective solution against scratches. Later painted the pieces evenly and has left dried in the shade. Also made the final adjustments to the circuit boards and covered all with a thin layer of protective varnish. Picked up the lathe and made a hollow metal structure where he put the central, now backed by springs, since the foam accumulate water and dirt, reducing component life. After a few hours, proceeded to mount the boards in the central and in this metal frame. A flexible photovoltaic panel was pasted in a part inclined 45 ° to the metal structure for better insolation, and the wires were masked by a finish of metallic adhesive. The reinforced velcro strap was screwed on both sides of the metal box that supported the central and was fully adjustable to the diameter of the neck of the D

Char 9 - The first flight
-Oh that boredom! Believe that I'd nothing to do today? Absolutely nothing, and that's something that hadn't happened for several years. Any idea of something more interesting?
The dragon raised his large wings and waved to his shoulders, besides presenting a certain twinkle in eyes very inviting:
-Want me to go up?
After responding with a positive nod, Jake promptly picked up his copybook and started annotate. The biggest surprise in truth is that the Dragon invited him to fly, and once with Jake above his shoulder, lifted flight immediately:
-Amazing! For this I didn't expect! Better hold me well while I write.
The dragon was flying real slow because Jake didn't have many options to hold unless grabbing the hair of the Dragon. Jake took note of everything he saw and felt for later transform the sensations on scientific data. Found interesting the increasing altitude, appropriately registered by a GPS application on your mobile:
The history of Jake cap 8 ENGLISH
Char 8 - Nocturnal Reflections
Outside the Dragon noticed that some stars twinkled far away. In truth they were signage strobes in radio towers on top of hills. Their night vision is only slightly better, can see in environments 20% darker than the human eye. The pupils are round, which limited a higher sensitivity, such as pupil rift of the cats, but unlike them the Dragon can see all colors of the visible spectrum with accuracy and some infrared and ultraviolet.
The stars were a mystery to the Dragon. However high it could fly they remained away and where they were seemed to be a heavy, cold place. He didn't know that at high altitudes the air is thinner and the temperatures are very cold. Was an obstacle that couldn't win as much as he wanted. The lack of oxygen took their strength and the wings could no longer oscillate with the same energy and timing. Need to be moved at the same time for the flight to be stable and as linear as possible.
Unlike the Drago

Char 7 - Communication is the question!
Jake and Anna laughed and started putting all in order. The dragon looked the movement leaning against a eucalyptus tree in the back of the property:
-How we will proceed with it here?
-He is quite independent. We don't have to intervene much, not domesticate it. My report needs to point its original characteristics and behaviors in the natural environment.
- But he can depend on us.
-We will support when needed. It's a time of transition, he liked us, but tends to return to its original behavioral state in a few weeks.
-I'm afraid to this doesn't happen. All his knowledge is theoretical and there is nothing practical.
-The rule is the same for any animal, including humans. Unless he is so different from others. It would be interesting to study their way of communicating to say how he it feels. Maybe we can discover a new way to communicate analyzing the patterns and creating variables.
-We cannot reinvent the wheel Jake
The history of Jake cap 6 ENGLISH
Char 6 - Unexpected return and new home
While Jake maneuvered the car in the middle of congestion, the Dragon
lived another lonely day sunny . I was very sad not to have company. Could
heal his wounds the next day they can release the wing and break the
provisional framework that Jake had. Without much thought, lifted flight and
went searching through the valley.
Flapping and soaring above the low clouds the Dragon knew would be at
risk of leaving the valley because Jake warned him , but something in his
conscience told that this was necessary . With little effort could increase the
speed and slipped on some many villages.
In town, Jake has left Ana at work and was making the last adjustments and
corrections in datasheet that prepared about the Dragon:
-I think that's well presented. The technical designs are finalized, the scales
adjusted and all details set!
For a moment he heard a beep on the GPS was in the kitchen. Thought to
be bug of device. Was glad to

Char 5 - The goodbye and the discussion in the car
Theoretically the collar will stand the own weight of the Dragon. Ensnared in the neck, is hidden and does not alter the mobility. Was also made to withstand all possible weathering for up to four years:
-Well, I think it's time for goodbye.
-Come on! I got a lightning offer shopping on cell phone!
While Ana jumped with the offers of hiking boots and the like, Jake stared at the Dragon:
Well friend. We'll have to go. Can you tell us any time, and I know where it is. Follow your life normally and avoid leaving the valley.
The the Dragon simulated a face of sadness while a tear trickled down the face of Jake. The separation was inevitable due to the labor commitments and hunger consumption of his wife.
Living next to the the Dragon give to Jake essential opportunity to understand their movements and habits. The contact for little over a day brought valuable experience and greatly expanded the technical expertise
