I didn’t manage to get in any outdoors flying this week, partly due to work and partly due to a certain football match kicking off at 1pm. I would have needed to take the bike this week and with the temperatures over 30 degrees plus a damaged shoulder, it would have been quite difficult. At the moment I can’t even get the bike out of the shed, so carrying it over the bridge is impossible.
It’s getting dangerously close to national robotics week and my little flying robot is still a long way from flying. I had a look at the accelerometer data from it this week, but the numbers I’m getting back are very strange. This precipitated the move from microPython to the raw C++ using mBed, but I still don’t know what I’m going to get back yet and whether a BBC microbit has the necessary hardware to fly. It’s certainly got the power, but whether it can use that power in a controlled fashion is another matter entirely. The next week should provide the answers. That is if I can manage not to spend all my time working again.
Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week.
