    Evening ride - of course it won't rain

    Post by mufynman on Thu May 11, 2017 11:18 pm

    After weeks of dry weather , I decided to head for some open ground tonight to test the old drone out to see if it could follow me on its own . Few spots of rain on the windshield at Monmouth , I thought ' oh it'll blow over ' . Even when i got togged up and set off I still believed that massive fucking black cloud was going the other way . 1 hour later I emerged from my makeshift shelter . Drones don't like rain apparently . Finally got a few minutes of footage , but still learning . It'll definitely do better with someone at the controls , the follow me function is a bit hit and miss when you leave it up to the drone , but it was starting to get dark lol!

    Handy pitstop , although the roof did leak a bit

    All this footage was with the controller lying on a rock , so all done by the drone finding me on the screen .

    Too many feckin trees round where I am . Was going to phone Wolfy considering its his back garden , but I spent 1 hour in a piss smelling brick shed , and 5 minutes riding before calling it a day . You have to keep an eye on if you are in shot , as if you do sudden turns when it's close , you'll go out of shot and it'll lose you . Pan back a bit and it seems better . If you ride back into shot it will find you again , but you need to press 'go' again on the controller which is where having someone else with you would be handy .
