Test and Tag Ads on Cycle Market St, near Pitt St Mall Lights

Ads on Cycle

Today I parked a bicycle  at a bike rack on Market Street Sydney, just east of Pitt St lights this morning at 6:00 am. (5 Oct 15)
This spot is subject to heavy pedestrian traffic, and probably over a thousand pairs eyes in cars stopped at lights.

Great Spot

This spot is just outside Westfield Sydney and opposite David Jones, and just up the road from Myer’s. Around the corner from Zara and H&M

Quadcopter Drone Flying Lessons

Quadcopter Drone Flying Lessons

 

 

Welcome to How to Fly a Quadcopter

This guide will show you everything you need to know to fly a quadcopter. These tutorials will also apply to flying any other multirotor. After reading this page, be sure to check out the flying lessons.

The Controls

Below is an example of all the controls for flying a quadcopter and how each control works.

  • Roll tilts the quadcopter left and right by speeding up the rotors on one side and slowing them down on the other.
  • Pitch tilts the quadcopter forward and backward the same way that roll does.
  • Yaw rotates the quadcopter by speeding up all of the rotors spinning in on direction and slowing down all of the rotors spinning in the opposite direction.
  • Throttle controls the up and down axis by varying the overall speed of the rotors.

These controls also have other names, for example: roll = aileron, pitch = elevator and yaw = rudder.

 

Stabilization

There are usually 3 main stabilization modes for a quadcopter.

  1. Rate, also know as manual, hard or Acro.
  2. Attitude (not to be confused with Altitude), also know as self-level or Auto-level.
  3. GPS-hold, also known as Loiter.

In the video tutorials I’ll be teaching you to fly in manual mode, it’s the hardest to learn but the most fun.

 

Before You Fly

When learning to fly a quadcopter, these are the things you should do if you want to have the best experience while still flying safe.

  • Go to a park or big grass field.
  • Fly in the morning to reduce the chances of flying in wind
  • Don’t fly with distractions
  • Stay away from people and animals
  • Take it slow, don’t go too far past your limits.

Two men found dead inside Randwick unit

Two men found dead inside Randwick unit

The bodies of the men, believed to be aged in their 50s and 70s, were found in the Randwick home on Saturday just after 9.15pm.

A concerned resident in the Cowper Street unit block called police after noticing that water had been flowing from the unit since the morning.

Eastern Beaches duty officer Inspector Steven Egbers said when emergency services arrived there was “sparking” caused by an electrical fault in the unit and reports of a gas smell.

The housing department unit block where two men are believed to have been electrocuted on Saturday night.

“There were concerns about the possibility there was an electrical appliance which may have been faulty and there was a possibility that somebody could be electrocuted,” Inspector Egbers said.

The area was sealed off and experts called to ensure the unit was safe for paramedics and police to enter.

Inspector Egbers said it appeared the deaths of the two men were an “unfortunate accident” and they were not being treated as suspicious.

While a post mortem examination will be carried out to determine the official cause of death, police believe the men were electrocuted.

Their bodies were found on the bathroom floor.

The apartment complex is owned by the Department of Family and Community Services.

In a statement, a spokesperson said the department was saddened to hear of the deaths and that the safety of tenants was a key priority.

A neighbour said the older man was a single father of two and the younger man had been staying with him for several months.

Lately, the neighbour said, the older man had been unwell and she had seen him leaving his apartment less.

“He was really nice, really nice,” the neighbour said.

The younger man, the neighbour said, was travelling with a friend and was temporarily living in the unit.

“He had been there for nearly twelve months. He was a lovely man he used to help me with my groceries all the time.”

Police were working on Sunday morning to contact the families of the two men.
