BBC fly drones at Alton Towers

I’ve just been made aware of this BBC News piece from December of last year where they test 2016’s ‘top’ drones, which includes the Mavic Pro. It’s the usual condescending approach, missing the point about why we fly drones completely (and with a really weird one at the end) but it’s interesting to see they tested them at a deserted Alton Towers. So can we add that location to our map? Maybe we should organise a ‘jolly boys outing’ for GADC members there! :rofl:

Not sure they can call the ‘camera on an extending pole’ a drone :rofl:

Alton Towers is NEVER that empty :open_mouth:

Yeah, I wondered about that one. Probably got a lousy RTH distance. :wink:
