Just give me a couple of tins of beans and I could do that
That is seriously cool
Comes with free Fire Truck!
I actually missed it … was way up the hill watching the rally stage. Hope to see it tomorrow or Sunday.
Yup … definitely on it’s own level of mega-cool!
With all the straw bales around … somewhat sensible!
I did see the autonomous Mustang and having worked in this field, I must say, I was not impressed!
The bloke kept grabbing the wheel and he ended up steering it more than the computer drove it
It’s not the better one. The Robocar was very impressive.
The Mustang is only “GPS with a few bits” rather than the AI of the racing Robocars.
I think they’re trying to develop a totally new approach to the issue.
must get me one of those, do you think the mpg will be ok for motorway driving.
Did you take those Dave?
what happens if you fall over just as your about to take off???
You get the worst case of gravel-rash that anyone ever saw
Yup - those 3 were my pics.
That a genuine angle he was flying at in the third, too … so it’s not difficult to work out the kind of acceleration … much like an MP at 30 degrees nose down! can’t escape the basics of physics.
Hoped to get more today, but battery on my DSLR was dead, couldn’t (and still cant, even though home) find my spare.
Tried using the long lens on my compact … but using a long lens without an eye viewfinder ain’t easy, and the screen is in totally the wrong position to use with my varifocals. (I take my glasses off the the DSLR … or wear contact lenses, like I was yesterday.)
Not looked at the results yet, but not over hopeful. Over 1000 pics from each of the three days to wade through.
There was a similar … ummm …. idiot (?) on Ch4’s …
An interesting program for many other reasons, not least of all (for me) was the Compton Abbas airfield that I’ve flown into/out of many times when my PPL was being used regularly.
Edit: And Thruxton … where there was a flying club I used to belong to (late 70s/80s-ish), and where I started a few years of parachuting and free-fall …. years ago ('72/'74).
