Drone flying in Fuerteventura for the first time
Sue, my wife, bought me a Holy Stone HS200 drone for Christmas so I decided to try it out after walking the dogs in the river beds. Well, I guess you could say it was a first drone flight fail!
I crashed the drone many times, particularly at the beginning as it had the tendency to fly sideways on its own immediately after take off. I managed to get around that by a combination of adding some compensation to the controls and some skilful flying.
It also seemed to suddenly have a will of its own and just head off in one direction until I hit the “land” button to stop it. This may be due to my piloting skills so I will have to do some more testing.
I got so “good” I even managed the super difficult “flying a drone under a car” manoeuvre! More testing with the Holy Stone quadcopter to come I think. Anyone else do any drone flying in Fuerteventura?
It is not easy to fly and seems to be very susceptible to the wind (which is a bit of a problem here!). It is very robust though as I have crashed it numerous times now and nothing has broken.
