Our maiden voyage on our new boat!

Here's a short video I made of our first little trip in our new to us Mainship 31! We spent 3 nights on it and absolutely can't wait to go back! This was all in Charleston, SC. Enjoy!

Thanks everyone! We are so excited for our next trip. The boat is getting some work done like cutless bearings and bottom paint, then she'll be ready for our next trip...this time with our 3 year old little girl. We can't wait!

Steve,

Looks like a great start, and hope many more great trips are coming for you.

Question, did you get the drone to land back on the boat.... and how? Any issues? I'm ready for drone practice and getting a hand me down for training.

I bet there are more hand-me-down remotes than hand-me-down drones.

Recently, a couple of TF members demonstrated their drones to me. The new ones have a GO HOME feature that allow autonomous return and landing while avoiding obstacles. This is pretty cool technology to a guy who made a career flying life-size gadgets like that and certifying navigation systems to make that happen in bad wx.

Very Cool!

I've been flying rc my whole life, drones are so different. They aren't like flying an rc airplane, more like flying a computer. That being said, once you get comfortable, they are a lot of fun.

I'm using. A Bugs 3. It's basically a toy that I strap my GoPro to. It's just a great flying quad for just over $100.

That being said, flying over water is scary. There's no second chances. If you make a mistake or if you have a glitch, your GoPro and quad will be gone. But even the cheap quads these days are so reliable that I felt comfortable with the risk. Just take your time and get comfortable with it before flying over water. Which drone do you have?

Here's my landing. It was a relief to get it back!

The technology is unreal. And it seemed to come out of nowhere. Apparently the cell phone technology is what made small and precise electronic gyros possible.

My drone doesn't have any of those features. But it still is a great flying drone. But it still takes a lot of concentration. The drones that fly themselves are amazing. They allow you do forget about the drone and it takes care of itself. Is there are decnent ones for $500 including the camera...really amazing.
