Auto Gate Control install
Gate won’t work
Things didn’t go well and I couldn’t get the gate to work, but I was able to set it up so I knew it should work. I went back and read the manual again and went online to look at some of the gate manufacturer’s videos on how to set up the gate controller and found the problem. I hadn’t set up the gates limits properly so I did that and things started to work.
I got that task done so moved on to a rest and some chair hopping around the yard.
Oh, that took most of the day, the controller setup I mean.
Just before dark I decided to use up the last charged battery on my drone.
This is the kit for the DJI Mini 2 drone I purchased a while back. Price for the kit is 599.
Newer drone coming soon
I heard there is another more advanced model out for this drone, a Mini 3 pro that will be out soon. It has more sensors for avoiding obstacles and it has it’s own viewing screen so the cell phone isn’t needed. And I think the price will be about double but that’s not out yet. I’ll stick with the one I have.
Flying the drone

I got the battery is getting low voice and returned it to me and landed safely. It’s really pretty easy to fly.
Then I went over to find my brother Tom to get his gate actuators to test them out on the new gate controller. They checked out ok and opened the gate.
