As I was dropping some gear back to our support team yesterday morning after the weekends RGU Hackathon, they queried if I would be able to assist some of my students with their coursework for a module I teach titled “Interactive Multimedia” – their task being to research, design, develop a presentation, video and interactive and tutorial on how to setup and fly a Quadcopter. Generally we require our students to get a good few training sessions before being left to fly the Quadcopters all by themselves.
Given it was such a lovely morning with clear blue skies and no wind, it was absolutely perfect conditions for some Quadcoptering. So we grabbed one of the Schools DJI Phantom Quadcopters, some batteries and went out to a few locations around campus to grab some footage of the Quadcopter setup and operation. The following images below should give you some idea of the morning we had. I must say that all the landings were perfectly executed. Was a great morning to be outside too, rather than stuck in front of a computer screen and keyboard.
