I figured I better take the drone out and get it ready for the Alumni "Run" at the track because I had the time. That will allow me to calibrate the compass and GPS systems. And if the forecasts are correct, I may not be able to fly on Saturday anyway!
And lo and behold, who do I see at the track when I arrive but two of our Alumni Group working out on their own in their quest for post-college glory! Steve Waithe was raking his own pit and Owen Dawson was clicking off a few intervals.
I took a few pics of the surroundings and flew the bird to the limit of 400 feet to look around. All systems are go!

|Steeple pit is empty!|
