Hey Donny, I was in NE Oklahoma over last weekend to see this Frank Lloyd Wright building erected in the 1950s. We did the tour and stayed in one of the hotel rooms. It's a very beautiful building. The green portions are made of copper and Mr. Wright intentionally used the copper knowing it would turn green. He wanted it to represent a tree sticking up out of the forest. As far as the drone, I was impressed that it stayed as steady as it did considering we were getting 40 mph wind gusts. See the American flag blowing on the building.

Video rendered at 2x speed.

amazing stability, given the wind! I guess that's why the good drones cost so much more than the cheap ones. I bought a cheap one several years ago, and the lack of stability (even in mild breeze) makes it totally useless for video (which is why I bought it)

Very nice video. Great job on the orbit considering the wind. wink

What bird to you fly?

As much as I would like to take credit for excellent pilot skills, I cannot. What makes these drones so great is that all of these features they have, they do on their own. I do very little piloting. Much less chance for human error.

In this one, I piloted the drone above the center of the building as you see at the start of the video. This was to create the center point for orbit. Once I locked that point in I backed the drone out about 200 ft. to create the radius distance. From there, I just told it to go and set the drone for full speed. The entire orbit was done in automation.

My Drone: DJI Phantom 4 Pro

Great job Steve. I have a P3 pro, P4 pro, and an inspire 2. I personally prefer the P4 Pro to the others. I'm thinking of selling the I2 because it's just not great to fly IMO.

You sir, have balls to fly in that kind of wind. I am a TOTAL wimp when it comes to wind.

Thank God for automation. I like DJI software, but also like Litchi.

Again, that's impressive work! Well done!

Cool, HTL, another forum member I can geek out with on drones..... Agree on Litchi. I use that one to plot courses. I will build the course online, download it to my phone, then send it to the drone......

Here's one from last fall where I used Litchi to build a course out over the Mississippi River in NW Illinois, my Dad's place. Total flight distance was over 4 miles. Litchi course map shown at the beginning of video.

Nice Steve! Yet another thing to take up an afternoon on YT. I happened on some drone vids last summer and spent hours going from one to another.

YT is really one helluva platform. Music vids, TV shows, tutorials on damn near anything (including some very good stuff and some very bad stuff).

Nice job with that drone! That is some spectacular footage you managed to capture. I've never used one myself, but I have a feeling I've break it somehow, if it operates anything like a toy helicopter does.

Definitely. Whenever I have to replace car, computer, or electronic parts, I can almost always find a related video to assist me.

That's so cool! In Ottawa the Parliament buildings had that infamous green to them as well -- specifically on the roofs. They replaced them in 2015 I think with new copper roofs, so it will be a while before you can see that familiar green shade again. But your post reminded me of that!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:

•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
