After todays metameet Turiphro started to unpack a box with an interesting new toy: the AR.Drone.
During the first test flight Turiphro discovered that not all the AR.Drone features worked with his Android phone. He decided to try it with an iPhone 4 and, after loading the app, it started updating the firmware.. Without any confirmation?!
When the firmware update was done it was time to fly again. With the iPhone 4 it is possible to control the device with the accelerometer by turning the device. That worked very well and he almost hit Okkie and a pile in the other end of the space.
As you can see, we had a very interesting evening (pictures taken with onboard camera #1).

And no, the device didn't crash seriously, it's sitting safe in it's box again. Waiting for the next adventure.
