News – Package Delivery by Drones

Last year, I thought about how cool it would be to work on this project for Amazon, Fedex, UPS, etc.

Here is an update from UPS.  Am I impressed?  Not really.  It could be done better, lol 🙂

 

UPS Delivery Drone Launches from Truck

UPS has completed the first test of its truck-launched HorseFly delivery drones. Conducted in a small suburb of Tampa, Florida, a modified UPS truck launched a drone that delivered a package and then returned to the truck as it continued to drive along its route.

 

Lesson – My Flight Simulator

This is my flight simulator setup that I put together a few years back.  Given the plane+instructor cost, this setup paid itself many many times.  Best part is you can position the plane for what you want to practice, save it as a scenario, and then fly it a zillion times, without wasting time+money for taking off, making a turn, calling the tower in real plane.

 

Lesson – Slips

For some reason I have trouble with slips.  I tried maybe 5~6 slips and they were nowhere close 🙂

This is the only video in youtube that actually explains how slips work and what to do if you are not lined up with the runway.  This plus 2 hours on the simulator, I think I’m ready to try slips again.
