Happy Hump Day ~ 240
I did training for 7 hours yesterday. Each time I do training I have a greater appreciation for the work that Jeanne does. The preparation for the training, the actual training (hoping all the time that what you’re teaching is being received) and then all the tear down and pack up afterward. Jeanne does it every day during the school year. Amazing!
When I did get back to the office the day’s work that I didn’t get done was waiting for me. Also waiting for me was the RotorPixel gimbal for the Phantom Vision 2. I ordered it last March 16th and it has taken this long to get it.
There is a start-up company in Great Britain who saw a need to build a gimbal for the Vision 2, which has a stationary camera on it. The camera is great for still shots but not good for video because every movement the craft makes is visible on the video. The gimbal eliminates that problem by making the camera independent of the craft. I’ll post an image of it when I get it installed.
Anyway they have had their share of problems as any start-up company would have but they’ve slowly worked through them and now have a pretty good production system. Problem is DJI (makers of the Phantom 2 Vision) released a new version of the Vision 2 a few weeks ago and called it the Vision 2+. It has a new camera with a built-in 3 axis gimbal. So it will be interesting to see what this company does because there are only a finite number of Vision 2 copters built and sold.
As for the image above. I’m not sure what the attraction to this old tree was but they sure enjoyed standing on it. I watched them for 30 minutes on the way home a couple of weeks ago and they never moved. 🙂
Several meetings today, which means some of the stuff I’m behind on is going to stay behind. 😦
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
