The furore of the New Year has begun to subside so I thought I would have a play with the Quadcopter.
Wow - it worked - i went to Nai Harn beach and I could hover the Quadcopter and now I was able to rotate it - this was a very real result.
Too many people so I chose to try another beach... Sirinart National Park. This was magnificent, the water was a little rough but I was on the sand. I remembered my #Quadcopter lessons on twitter and found some broken cement for a flat surface and WHOOOOOSHHHHH up it flew - fabulous, i was on a wave and it went high above the trees..... and a gust of wind tossed it sideways and it rotated in midair - obviously my controls did not work OR it was upside down? It kept going to the wrong way.... Stop everything... The Quadcopter plummeted into the Sea... Running into the water I picked it out as swiftly as possible.... Returning to the car the phone worked and the Quadcopter still responded.... BUT then the copter blades (1 set) began to rotate after a phone call was received? Then my phone did not work... oh dear... watch this space.
Guess Who Aliens! This is a fabulous game which I have played any number of times - recently finding an App for it as well!! It has served me well both as a teacher, a parent and just for fun - it serves wonderfully as a tool for Education that it is a shame that it is under used - but enough!
