I couldn't agree more, Gort! It's just wrong to ask those fantastic creatures to do that!

My neighbors had a garage sale and out of curiosity I wanted to see what was left. So, always looking for an excuse to fly the drone, I sent it on a recon mission. This short video does take a while to download.

A few weeks ago I wanted to fly the drone to document some of the hurricane aftermath. As I was about to take off the drone had a major failure, a short with smoke. I quickly disconnected the battery but unfortunately there was significant damage. Had this occurred in flight it couldíve caused a big problem. Some wires in a harness apparently had shorted probably from some slight vibration over time fraying the insulation exposing bare wire leading to the short. The short of course led to the destruction of several important components which seem to be terribly vulnerable to any type of electrical mishandling. For the amount of money these components cost there should be protective circuits to prevent this kind of loss.

In any case I finally made repairs and had to check it out. I was more interested in functional flight characteristics of the drone rather than a steady camera so the video is a bit jerky. This is one of several test flights to be sure everything is working appropriately.

The OSD (on-screen display) provides a summary of the flight with various tidbits of information. I posted this at the beginning of the video just for information. It may have to be downloaded to watch.

Thank you Mr. SYS. (I bet most people donít even know that SYS comes from SYS config which comes from systems configuration back in the 286 386 days of DOS.) Anyhow I made something very similar except where I live thereís nothing but trees. So it took me out and about and I had a problem and landed in a tree. I was stuck there for 5 days until some dog started barking at me. Then the neighbors came out thinking that I was a raccoon and shot me with pellet guns. I finally was able to convince them that I was not a talking raccoon. They had no idea how a human could get lost up in the trees. Finally I was rescued. My drone had long since flown in to locations probably far out in the Atlantic. No one actually believed me, they thought I was some sort of pervert caught in the tree tops. Except what would I be doing up there anyhow itís a long story I was finally rescued and have vowed never again to build such a powerful drone.
