DRONE #FAIL

So, I completed building a prototype of my drone. I was so happy and proud of myself. I had spent six long weeks finding the materials, and putting it all together to build a working protoype. I planned to take a video of my masterpiece so that I could post the progress on Collaborizm.

I had my video camera ready, it was a beautiful sunny day – the perfect day to film my drone flying in the air. I set up the camera on a tripod so that I had both hands to control the drone and I set her free. The prototype was flying so well until suddenly, I felt a fly buzzing in my ear. I HAD to itch it, I had to get it out of my ear and I lost control of the drone and it flew straight into a tree. As you can imagine, the drone broke – the propeller was not salvageable…so I stood there, with no more fly in my ear, but also no more drone ☹.

When was this? And why hadn’t you told me about it? 6 long weeks? Then you must have started before you met Claran and me in Mangalore 3 weeks ago. 😉
