Assignment 2. Flying Helicopter
I worked on the programming project PP 1.10. To lift a helicopter up and fly it in a wide circle and land.

I managed to make it lift up and make a circle but not a wide one then eventually land.

The Do together does not seem to follow the sequence of the methods under it. Although the book suggested to use move forward and turning one full rotation simultaneously.

I will experiment more to see how Alice decides to give precedence to methods grouped in "Do together."

I'm curious about this myself. I had some issues with my first program that i tried with the penguin. I tried to make it flap and walk at the same time, but when it got near the hole to fall in it just kept flapping. I don't know if it's because i made the wings flap too many times while in the do together, but even when i turned the flaps down to .01, he still continued to sit and flap at the hole before falling in. When you find out, please let me know!

When the duration in the methods within a Do together are similar it behaved better. Probably since they are going to be performed together the duration should also be similar.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 06:00 AM.
