Hi My name is olive, I'm am getting into drones but am more of a robotics person. Wondering what you guys think of the Spark because I'm looking into getting one. I have a crappy drone right now so I could get better at flying. -olive
As a rookie UAV pilot, 'and no I will not go fetch a gallon bucket of prop wash', I find that learning to fly this thing is about as scary-fun as anything I have ever done. Have had two minor, slow motion crashes since unboxing it, and we have learned that a 50' radius is about the minimum for launch area when the morning desert breeze arises. So this craft is supposed to have a max. altitude of 1,600 feet above launch elevation ? I am not even presently comfortable flying at 40 feet above me on my residential street, but have broken 125 feet in altitude out in the desert east of Vegas, and THAT was reason to celebrate. Mind you I have had 37 successful jumps during past military service, and those were similar in adrenal rush to piloting this thing up and down the street avoiding trees and power lines. For some reason, have not reached the comfort point of just being 20 or so feet above the trees and wires overhead, which would probably make life so much easier. Weird huh? Anyone wants to chime in, it would be comforting to know that I am not just getting old...........
I have run, but I could not hide from completing the “PRACTICUM” part of UAV Boot Camp! Here's my attempt at one part of UAS flying manually. I am working on improving my manual flight skills, I will never know when I might need it. Check out my video link here: https://youtu.be/wnhy6e7zlmA
