Aloha Genghis,

     Really nice effort!  Like wombat said, nice job missing those lines.  Good you are very familiar with the yard in the daytime, since you came very close to some of those branches to.  

     I liked the shivering snowman.  Funny.  The other characters were interesting to.

     Good luck with the contest!

Aloha and Drone On!

Yes, you are correct...I have not worked a lot with those extra modes as I've been focusing on flight control.  I was painfully aware of the control problems I made.  I knew working it that it was not going to go as well as it looked in my mind, but I wanted to at least give it a go.

Thanks for the shout out!

YUP those were a major concern...amongst others
At the risk of making excuses this in reality turned out to be harder than I had envisioned due to all the obstacles for the drone as well as myself...

Aloha Genghis,

Yeah thanks for being kind LoL...
I did do a walk through in the daylight and at the time it did not seem that hard.  However, once darkness hit I found it a lot harder to pull off.  While the power lines were a concern, the trees, lawn fixtures, and tie down lines were not any easier to see, believe it or not.  I had to walk along behind the bird at several points as the video feed was not clear enough to ensure I was missing all the things in the way.
All in all it was a learning experience, I need more practice controlling the thing...and night ops looked easier in my mind lol...
Thanks for the cheering but I think my chances are similar to that of an ice cubes chance in hell, but I threw my hat in anyway.

Speaking of Christmas decoration lights, I am looking into the LED strip lights Amazon offers in their website. I think these lights are perfect for the Christmas tree and they can create a fantastic atmosphere that fits to this holiday.
