Hi all, time dose fly and the older I get the faster it goooo’s! Amd the slower I get.

Anyway, since the move, I’ve done little, in the way of exciting, to ‘post’ about. But, have made some progress getting my shop setup and started working with my lathe and mill a little. My little CNC router is setup again, but I haven’t fired it up as of yet.

Now to what this update is about: July 1, I order DJI Phantom 4 from Amazon and it was delivered the afternoon of July 5th. I was excited, to say the least, as I have wanted a good drone / camera quadcopter for several years now. So first thing in the morning of July 6th, after feeding the dogs of course, out to the yard I went for our first flight. The little beast is so stable and easy to fly! Here’s the video I put up on YouTube of the first flight.

And some photos of our yard and surroundings from the Phantom.
