View From Above

We got adventurous today and strapped a colleague's smartphone to the belly of the TATTS hexarotor and took it for a test flight in the park.  Very cool.  It was breezy so the hex was jumping around a bit but overall it was pretty impressive.  Looking down at the grass is a bit boring but once we have the landing gear, gimbal and GoPro in place we'll be able to move the camera at different angles.  Then we'll really be cooking.  The kids are absolutely going to love it!

Those 3 tiny dots are Dan, Ben and I.  Ben is the guy making "snow angels" in the grass.  I'm glad to see the hex brings out the kid in all of us.
