360 Drone Racing

More like a practice run if you ask me.  I’ve flown drones like this before, they are not easy to control, I know I would crash it trying to make those sharp turns.  One thing I think should be kept out of these drone videos though is the audio.  I don’t want, or need to hear the high pitched whine of the 4 small motors spinning the blades.  It’s distracting.

I think attaching a 360 camera, and flying the drones though a forest would be way cooler though.  Watching the bare concrete parking lot is pretty boring.  Maybe if there were a few other drones flying at the same time, but I guess not.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone.  I hope you have a great time, and I hope those of you with children set up something like this one day in your life.  There’s alot of thought that went into the track, using LEGO as the pillars is a great idea to keep track (pun intended), of the level needed.  You can tell this is a first design because there’s no style to the LEGO yet, it’s just slapped together.  That works, but for version 2, hopefully they get some consistency there.

And, if the wooden train track one wasn’t enough for you, here is a dedicated Marble Run type.  It’s even Christmas themed:

According to the lead engineer, it uses over 600 feet of track.  You can see some of the track boxes holding up part of the track itself.  This one doesn’t look as permanent, posts are precariously held up, and half perched over ledges.  It also takes up far too much of the house to be left up for any length of time.
