yesterday i was visiting a friend who built a quadcopter, and we went to a nearby meadow to let it fly. well, i didn’t had a chance to let it fly, i would have probably wrecked it anyway, but my friend spend some time flying with it and could do it pretty good. the quadcopter is equipped with gps and an altimeter and, if in the right mode, tries to keep it’s position, despite the wind. quite cool. it also has a compass to ensure that it’s orientation won’t change unintentionally if you tilt it or fly forwards. anyway, it produces a lot of wind and can fly upwards pretty fast.
maybe i need another new toy… :)
