|JJRC H37 ELFIE Foldable Mini RC Selfie Drone.|
My very first flight was indoors. This thing took off, careered out of control and smashed into the wall. The same thing would keep happening time after time. Take off, completely fine. Then the drone realizes it's flying, freaks out and promptly chooses some random direction to fly into the ground.
I shelved it for several months because I just couldn't fly it, at all.
Recently I decided to give it another try, initially with similar results but, as I took a little more time to study the wafer thin manual, I've gradually gotten to learn how the controls work.
I'm now at the point where I can at least keep the drone under some degree of control. Not yet good enough to frame the camera for decent video footage though (as you'll see in the video below).
Before taking my drone out for a spin, as I mention in the video, that was also the first time I'd taken my Longboard out for a real ride with a purpose. I wanted to see if I could find a good location to fly my drone nearer than the field where I ended up.
I was able to skate much further, over rougher terrain, and was nowhere near as puffed as I would have been riding the same distance on my Popsicle board.
Honestly, regular boards are great but if you do more commuting than tricks, a longboard is a much better option.
