Just for Fun


A guy on a motorcycle passing by saw the drone up and asked JD to follow him with it. JD obliged, knowing his drone could easily keep up if the motorcyclist stuck to the 25-mph neighborhood speed limit. Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild" would be overkill for the soundtrack, and probably not worth the royalties required. So the sound track has computer-generated music from SoundStage. JD lost track of the motorcyclist when another guy walking his dog struck up a conversation. So much for a sterile cockpit!

JD briefly tests the Indoor Positioning System (IPS) of his Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter ourdoors. Intended for use indoors where reliable GPS reception may not be available, IPS uses downward-facing sensors to determine the drone's position. You can see from the drone's shadow that it seems to hover in place fairly effortlessly. GPS is not being used. This is raw 4K video straight from the CG03+ camera. No audio.

If the street is named Woodlake Drive, but you fly over it, should it be renamed Woodlake Fly? This is near the White Oak Landing subdivision in Baton Rouge, not far from JD's abode. 4K video from a CG03+ camera on a Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter.

It was a lovely day and JD had no particular place to go with his drone, so he launched from his sidewalk and aimlessly wandered. 4K video from the CG03+ camera on a Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter.

JD's carport was only half full, so he decided to fly through it after taking off from the back patio. The rest of the flight was up to an altitude of 130 feet or so for a quick look around, and then back for a landing. 4K video, Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter.
