Learning to Fly !

After completing the sailing licence a while ago, Patrik decided he wants to learn to fly…..with a drone! ?

DJI Spark Drone

Yes, he’s got a new toy since Monday and is happier than a little child on Xmas Day! Nevertheless, it took him a while to get the thing started. At least the lights are beautiful……but how the heck does it fly ⁉️

DJI Spark Drone HOW DOES IT WORK DJI Spark Drone lights on

Almost two hours of intensive fiddling about later, the drone was finally in the air! Ok, it was a bit wobbly and bumpy at first, but hey, practice makes perfect! The next day he went to the vineyard close to us, to do some serious exercise and – ta-daaa – here comes the result!

Not too bad, after such a short time, eh?!

Well, next we needed to find a suitable name for the little thing….YES, of course it needs a name! Even our lawnmower was baptized, he’s called “Sleipner” ?

Anyway, after being torn between “Dragonfly”, Stella (“Star” in Italian), “Hugin” or “Mugin” (the two ravens of Odin – the Nordic God – had), we settled for “Farfalla”. It means “Butterfly” in Italian  ?


Of course Farfalla is accompanying us to Sardinia. We hope to get some exciting films and pictures out in the sea! Hopefully, Patrik practiced the “touch-down” part properly…….. ?

  1. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast
    for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!
