Light painting at SciBono


Tech4Africa will be at SciBono this year, we (Arnold, Nico and me) visited there a couple of nights ago and did some light painting using neopixel equiped quadcopters and freakin’ lazers!

Thanks also to Richard for coordinating and Michael Ellis and his team at SciBono for their support on the night.

We are doing two talks this year at Tech4Africa – please vote if you have not done so yet:

FPV at Valhalla


Friday’s weather started out quite miserably, so we only got to the Valhalla baseball fields at around 13:00.

However, the day really improved and we had lots of phun flying FPV planes and quadcopters.

Zer0T1lt recorded some footage using his GoPro and new gimbal and edited that into a great summary of the site and day:

Nico and I tried some formation flying and Nico edited the best scenes together – at some point his plane is so close to mine, you can read the writing on the wing!!!
