Red object tracker

This is an example of an intelligent object recognition system. It broadcasts pixel area. I assembled a robot turret with a camera from a kit, and used machine vision software. Many applications

Coal Center Pylon Inspection

I always wanted to get a closer look at the plants growing atop this old bridge pylon. Turned out to be quite the garden. Infrastructure inspection in hard-to-reach places is a good application of drones. This is located in Coal Center, PA.

This was filmed on a nice spring day. I used a retro digital filter to give it a washed out look.

Really high quad flight today with perfect weather

This is with a Dromida Ominus, and one of my first high altitude flights with my trainer drone. I loved that I could crash and repair this drone. If you consider getting a drone, get ready for repairs, too. This is flown LOS. It looked like a dot in the sky. I am on the field towards the dotted line of trees. I fought the wind and ran the battery down with this flight.

       
     
Drone Crash Into Neighbor's House!

This is what happens when the wind carries your cheap drone beyond line-of-sight and you intentionally bring it down. I was in the backyard and dropped it after it flew across the street. I fixed a motor and it worked fine. It took a couple of days to find it.
