Playing Tourist in New Mexico, Part 1

Fort Bayard Officers Row, circa 1910

While staying at the Pancho Villa State Park in New Mexico, we spent the last 12 days relaxing, working a bit on the computers, and playing tourists.

Playing Tourist in New Mexico, Part 2

My Entry into the 3DR Solo Video Competition

The 3DR Solo Owners Group on Facebook usually hosts a monthly video competition of videos taken with the 3DR Solo. Back in June 2015, I won first prize for a photograph I entered into the 3DR Iris Photo competition. My entry into this month's video competition added a little humor about a upcoming fictitous feature to be added to the application (Solo App) used to fly the 3DR drone. Here's the vid...
