Merry Christmas 2018 from Andysworld!

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

It’s possible this is the last blog of 2018, as the Hosting company is upgrading PHP (a computer development language) on 14th December 2018 and it’s very possible that underlying change will break the blog!

So here is a photo of some Christmas Tree lights near where I live!

Merry Chrimbles everybody!

Merry Christmas from Andysworld! and York iconic St Nicholas Fair?

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

We don’t venture out to York very much, but Lindsey took me to Ippuku Tea House yesterday for my Birthday meal, which is a Japanese Tea room in York. If you like Japanese food, the food is excellent!

The Christmas Shoppers in York, were terrible, drawn by the iconic St Nicholas Fair?

Return to China – on our own this time!

Monday, November 12th, 2018

It’s been about 15 years since we visited China, and as it’s one of my favourite countries, I’ve visited so far, so it was about time we returned to see how China has changed in 15 years!

So in early spring this year (2018), we returned to China.

4.Xian

5.Luoyang

6.Shaolin

It’s taken Lindsey a while to sort through all the thousands of pictures which were taken on a digital SLR and my mobile phone, so please enjoy:- these are the best.

They’ve been uploaded to the Holiday Photo Album, which also contains all the other photos taken since 2006.

Jack Frost visited last night

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

This short 5 minute 1080P HD clip was recorded at 8.30am on the 19 December, it’s not snow on the roads, it’s just a hard frost. It’s at approximately 30 feet above the ground.

Watch as I miss a telephone line by inches, and also look out for Angus!

It gives me an idea of the road conditions before driving to work…as the first two miles of driving in rural Yorkshire can be very hazardous as the roads are NOT gritted!

I’ve had a cold for a week, so not been feeling well enough to concentrate whilst flying…

400ft 360 deg panoramic photograph above Meltonby

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

So today, built up enough confidence to fly at 400 feet, which is The Drone code Be Drone Safe proposed rules for safe flying of drones maximum “safe” altitude.

What I didn’t expect was the the iPhone application to crash, leaving my drone at 400 feet! It sounds worse than it did, because I was able to restart the application, re-connect to the drone, and issue a return to home.

I could have brought it home using the remote controller, which connects to the drone, the Phone and App connect to the remote controller, and in the event, it loses contact with the remote control will issue a return to home!

So panic over!

I managed to solve the issue with the App, by removing the video cache, and later this afternoon, re-visited 400 feet to take this photograph.
