In this video a cow moose and her calf run across the frozen Washington landscape on Monday, Dec. 11, 2017. The drone capturing the video was flown for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and was a test to see if the agency will use drones in the future. The moose and calf were not fleeing the drone, instead running from a nearby human. The drone was piloted by Jason Hanlon, who owns and operates ExploreUAS, a company focusing on drone video, photography and mapping.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
