Ah May…and it’s still raining!!!

Well, the weather here has been crap for the most part. Almost great during the week, but crappy approaching the weekend…normal. And this pandemic isn’t helping either, can’t workout at the gym, can’t get a haircut, and can’t go to a fun fly…as if the weather would let us, so…

A new toy!

I had some vacation time to burn up from work, and the day was fairly decent, except for the 25+ mph gusting winds. However, around the house it wasn’t that bad. So I broke out the drone for a flight around the house. I needed to figure out how to change the video quality as it was set for 4K. And my old MacBook Pro couldn’t handle that…choppy! Yep! Definitely time for an upgrade!

I found the settings and dropped it to 720 as a trial. Switched into sport mode, and flew a couple of laps around the house, over the house, and around me. I checked out the video, and it was much better, but no sound? I’m still waiting for the opportunity to test out the follow mode…maybe I can try this while cutting the grass! It only takes 25 minutes with my zero-turn to cut the yard. Speed the video up, and it would be funny as heck! That would also test out the avoidance system, aka collision detection.


After thoughts…

Tired of hanging out around the house…watching it rain.

Until next time…
