Yesterday my partners, Linda and Tom Akenson, and I hosted a Brokers Open House at a home we have listed for sale at Maple’s Edge at Lake Miltona. The purpose is to get other agents and brokers to tour the home so they learn about it and can tell any potential buyers about it. Lunch is offered which helps those hungry for a sale and some that are just hungry.
After the Open ended, I grabbed my quadcopter from my car and headed to the marina as I wanted to record some aerial footage of Maple’s Edge. I followed the start up steps I always follow and waited for the confirm lights to let me know how many satellites it was communicating with. Then, I experienced something new. The light alternating from red to yellow. The red should have been my clue. I have since learned that it means the quadcopter needs to be calibrated. But, at the time, there was a cold wind blowing and I needed to get back to my office so I decided to launch anyway. Below is the result/crash.
