Paradroid 2nd Jump - Afte implementing lessons learned from the first dive we made numerous adjustments to Paradroid. However, the unbearable crulness of life caused the chute not to open at all.
Paradroid fell from 1000ft for 23 seconds. Amazigly, it kept working the whole way down, no harm was done to the robot and no new fractures on the Nexus S (still carries some scars from the bridge…).
Before Paradroid can become a skydiver - it will practice BASE jumping!
Manually navigated jumps from “Akbara” bridge (240ft, Tsfat, Israel) helped us tweak the steering methodology.
