    Closure Of UK Get Discovered

    It seems that Christmas isn't coming my way this year. Whilst one of the 3 brothers I share the house with was away on vacation my other brother, the eldest of the siblings, developed a very serious illness & sadly passed away. Added to this my own health has taken a turn for the worse & I am also struggling at the moment. Because of this & a total lack of energy when the web site renewal arrived in my inbox I took the sad decision to close the website. It's been a long time since it was updated although the radio page was doing really well.

    The Radio channel is now streaming on this web site using the Radio page. It seems much better than having to keep opening the UK Get Discovered page. I will still support all the great Indie music when I can. Let's just hope that 2017 is a better year than this year.

    Merry Christmas & a happy new year to everyone.

    Quadcopter Experience

    After having these quadcopters for over a year on Friday July 29 a friend & I finally went to the park with two quads with the full intention of flying them. The wind was a little high but I didn't think it was that bad & the rain had stopped, although the freshly cut grass was still really wet.

    Anyway we got them set-up and they started flying, getting much higher than they should have which was worrying. It also seemed like the wind was pushing them towards the trees, even more of a panic set in then. To make matters worse it seemed neither of us could get full control of our respective quadcopters and after around 3/4 of an hour of trying we decided to call it quits, putting the blame firmly on the wind.

    It turns out that wasn't really the problem, it was that both remote controls used the same frequency &, despite claims on the packaging of the one quadcopter that this wouldn't be an issue, we were too close together and the controllers were 'confused' as to which drone they should be controlling. Still it is a lesson learnt & next time we will just have to take turns with flight time. One of the orange lamp shades came off the Syma but finding it would have been like looking for a needle in a haystack but these are cheap enough to get off ebay so ordered a pack of 8 which cost under £2.00. Looking for some new projects now that winter is slowly heading our way.
