David has been a very busy guy lately. For Christmas he got a ScoutX4 Quadcopter. This thing is huge. It has GPS capabilities and is large enough to carry a GoPro camera.
Over the past few weeks he has assembled it, programmed it and has been learning how to fly it. This past week, with David at the helm, his ScoutX4 took its maiden voyage up somewhere over the city of Keene.
It was a success! (see the above picture of David and his brother programming the Quadcopter.)
Winter weather can make it harder for people in wheelchairs to get out and about. David loves to be outdoors. So last week he went to Home Depot. He bought some 1/2 inch plywood. Had it cut into two pieces measuring 3′ by 4′. Then he had the guy drill two holes in each sheet and bought some rope. When he got home he had his brother cut the rope and put the ends through the holes and tie knots on the ends to make a handle.
Now when David is out in snow he can have the two sheets put down to drive his wheelchair up them. To move forward he drives his chair onto the front sheet while someone grabs the rope on the second sheet and pulls it around from behind him to the front and so on and so,on until he gets where he wants to go. He tried it and it works. I think he wants to get up to Granite Gorge and try it out there.
