My new flying buddy!

Post by Rob Thomson » Thu May 17, 2012 4:14 am

My wife gave birth to a healthy boy an hour or so ago.

I am well chuffed!

I have a new flying buddy :). Just have to wait 6 to 7 years!

pretty baby!

hang your FPV monitor right in front of him when you fly, he will be trained from infancy as FPV pilot. ;)

Rob,

From Site Admin to Nappymeister. :shock: Congrats, dad!

Glad to hear mum and son doing well. He looks to be a spittin' image of his dad, and that's not at all bad. :D

Congratulations Rob, to you and your wife and my best wishes for the new born.
It's seem yesterday my one was of that size, but time goes by fast and he is almost tall as me.

Congratulations from Finland too. :) I do also have couple flying buddies. Now you have a good reason to buy another TH-9X for your flying buddy, so she cannot complain about your acquisitions. :P

Congratulations to all you family from my wife and I.

You need to create a lullaby to play in ersky9x, I've put the codes for the 'piano tones' in, just needs them sequenced and timed!

Rob: The frequencies are in the array PianoTones, You just need to queue the required tones with duration using:
uint32_t queueTone( uint32_t frequency, uint32_t time, uint32_t frequency_increment )
It returns a 1 if it accepted and queued the request, 0 if it is busy with previous requests.
A frequency of 0 causes a pause, the time is in milliseconds, rounded to 5mS.
