A dad creates a flying drone to walk his kid to the school bus. How are you getting your kids on the bus - by walking them yourself? That's so old school!One dad has come up with a new way.Essentially a flying drone, equipped with a camera, the quadrocopter follows his kids to the bus stop. The dad previously walked 400 meters down a hill each morning with his son, but he fantasized about creating something that would follow the grade school boy and record at the same time, allowing the father to watch from his computer. He bought separate parts for the quadrocopter's airframe. The center frame holds the electronics while pieces of aluminum serve as a support system for the propellers and motors. A radio receiver along with a radio frequency modem can be used for computerized flying. He strapped a Smartphone to the drone, equipped with a video chat application. His son’s backpack contains a RF modem, which sends out GPS signals to the drone.
