I did it. I went out and bought a remote control drone. The flying sort.
I had some trepidation, as did my wife, as a few years ago I had gotten into flying model aircraft and after a spectacular crash, got out again, deeming it too expensive and needing far more skill than I had. Would this time be any different or would it be another few hundred pounds down the drain?
I bought a cheap drone – just 12 inches across, with a camera that did not transmit a live picture and so, for the princely sum of 60, I could be airborne again.
The remote control looked familiar and appeared to do similar things to my old aircraft controller.
