After somewhat of a absence of blogging, taking photos or generally having something to write about, I went out and bought a drone… crashed it a few times, then totally smashed it up last night (Sunday) Thankfully I had the foresight to take out a cover plan so get a new device quite cheap.
I’ve read plenty about what’s going on, how to fly, what went wrong and many other things. I have to say as much as I love flying I don’t think I have ever been so stressed when it loses a bit of control and you’re helplessly trying to to regain control. Once it loses GPS or something plays havoc with the sensors (magnetic interference for example) it takes some great skill to get the drone back, after reading many an article it’s hard to tell if it’s glitches in software, user error or a bit of both.
Whilst I await a fix here’s some footage of a rather sheepish first ‘proper’ flight. I am now in contact with DJI about a replacement.
