Like a Kid on Christmas

Marathon, FL

I'm usually not like this, but Libby gave me a Christmas present that is extremely tempting to open and use before Christmas morning.

It is a UDI U818A quadcopter. http://dronebly.com/vital-facts-about-udi-u818a-quadcopter   It can fly for up to 10 minutes while taking still/video pictures. 



To be completely honest, I already opened the package, read the instructions, and charged up all the batteries.  I could't stand a 24 hour delay if I opened it on Xmas morning only to find that I needed a day to charge up the batteries before use.

I also made a date with my friend Brian.  Brian and I are going to take it to the park nearby for its initial shakedown flights and flight training . 

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.  I look forward to the day when I can post on this blog a video of Tarwathie under sail and Libby and I waving at the circling drone above us.

Is the drone waterproof?  No.  Therefore, pilot training is needed before the at-sea use.
