Mower deck repairs
I found my brother Barry’s truck parked by my garage when I went out to feed the chickens this morning.
He had his dirt bike and something else too. He had his riding mower deck in the back of his truck that needed some welding.
Dirt bike ride
I think that all took about an hour so once that was done we jumped on our dirt bikes and headed up into the hills for a couple of hours of riding around the property.
After a good break we took off again to do some more riding.
Long way home
From there we headed back to my house going the long way.
Showing off my drone
I had told Barry when we got back to my house I’d show him how my drone works and let him try flying it so I got the drone stuff out.
Messed up the software
Last night I tried to download and install some new drone software updates and I was pretty sure I messed things up doing that.
So sure enough when I tried to show him the drone, the drone’s camera software didn’t work, but never the less I could still demo how to fly the drone.
Barry flies the drone
After a quick demo I gave him the controls and told him what to do with the joy sticks so he could try flying it as it’s really pretty easy to do. Just don’t go too far away, I said.
That worked out well and he was flying in a short time. I think there may be a drone in Barry’s near future.
He took off for home and the day was almost over.
Can’t seem to install the darn software
Once I was in the house I started trying to install the drone software again in my cell phone. I could download it, but I couldn’t find the install button so I went next door to ask Dominic how to do it as she’s pretty good with cell phones and I am not.
But she tried and tried but couldn’t find the install button either.
Had to log on to do it
I went back home and started looking on the internet and finally found a video that said I had to log in on their site to make it work, so I logged on and agreed to a bunch of stuff and an install button finally popped up so I got it installed and working again.
Apparently one has to log on and do it this way as their site records a log on where you fly so there is a legal thing going on. Why don’t they just tell one so things aren’t so difficult.
Anyway I got the new updated software installed and all is well.
