’ve got a new, 10-day adventure up my sleeve. Today, I’m headed to the Canadian Arctic on a drone trip! I’ll be traveling with Quark Expeditions on their Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge trip.
For the next 10 days, you’ll find me 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle. I’m looking forward to seeing beluga whales for the first time, encountering polar bears (just not too close, hopefully), and doing my favorite things to do in nature like hiking and kayaking.
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.
