In the summer of 2015 we had just finished a new frame design and I was eager to try it out…but I had a gig! So, with the help of the crew we tested it out backstage and sent it out over the audience. This falls under the category of things I knew I could get away with in 2015 but would soon be very illegal.
Soldier Field and the Chicago Skyline
I did a few laps around the field during setup and realized how visible the skyline was at the top…so this was a quick run from the stage to above the stadium and back. Later I did a track from the smithsonian to backstage so I could link it all into one big video but I haven’t had time to edit.
Flying a quadcopter with just a phone
I’ll post detailed instructions here if anyone is interested.
A little copter drops off a big cliff
The cliff behind my house is my favorite place to fly…but I was so excited to finish this particular frame build that I grabbed an uncharged battery to test it out. It was a long drop and I had FPV video rolling. No copters were harmed in the making of this video
A drone tour of the American Airlines center in Dallas
Yeah, I’m starting a nerdy blog. It’s already redundant to say a blog is nerdy. Is anybody expecting a cool blog? I’m just documenting the more technical things I do for shits, giggles, and spreading the grok. I’ll be honest with you: I’m gonna half-ass it for a while… Not even going to change the title if this post. Once I have a few things built up here I might fix up the place, see how it looks with Comic Sans and a black background. I can tell you’re excited.
