Furthermore, we are able to control the flying machines, visual and audio aspects concurrently, using the DMX512.
Dawn of a revolution in urban mobility – first manned flight with the Volocopter VC200 The premiere of manned flights with the world’s first certified Multicopter, e-Volo's Volocopter VC200, marks the beginning of a new era in urban mobility. For the first time humans’ dream of personal flight as a daily routine becomes attainable. As such it not only offers more widespread use in conventional aircraft domains, but brings us another step closer to air taxi services and entire transportation systems in the third dimension. “The flight was totally awesome” pilot Alexander Zosel said right after his landing. “I got in, we did the pre-checks for what felt like maybe 20 seconds, and after that I’d already got the all-clear for flying. I didn’t wait long, I simply pushed the lever upward and the Volocopter simply sprung upward in a single bound.
It is definitely a sublime feeling to lift off, fly the first few meters, and then actually take my hand off the joystick and think that, yeah, it’s really as if I’m standing on the ground, and then I look down and there are 20-25 meters beneath me. So it’s definitely unbelievable what we’ve achieved here. It’s seriously unbelievable!”

Making a dog puzzle Day 7 of the Scrapwood Challenge was probably a day too far! I was shattered before I started and after 10 hours working on a project I ditched it as I just wasn't happy with it!

Long and short of it, the project and the editing was thrown together! The edit took about two and half hours, finishing at 1-30am, record time!
