Droning On

One of my most entertaining Christmas presents was a drone. A Hubsan X4, which is a beginner’s quadcopter. It was remarkably easy to get it flying, more or less straight out of the box.

So easy in fact that I quickly became over-confident, and embedded it in the lampshade.

So we added the guard that we should have fitted in the first place, and were soon flying it round the room without too much trepidation.

And catching it on the hover.

And even landing it without too much of a bump back at coffee table base.

And finally we got the camera working. Not perhaps the greatest quality video, but huge fun!
