Flying around hill forts

Hill forts may be the best subjects for drone pilots. :grinning:
Especially during the months of October and November.

Where the fields are now empty of crops, and have been plowed and harrowed perfectly smooth,
making it a lot easier to find the drone if it comes down.

No worries about flying over people and built-up areas, no nosy Council Jobsworths to avoid,
no buildings to avoid, just thousands of square metres of emptiness.

The trees are now changing colours, making the videos much more interesting.

My latest trip out to the wilds, it was a long walk across fields but was fun experience >>>

No, not yet, I have been lucky !
But if the drone flies into a flock of pigeons, or is attacked by a Hawk or
Kestrel, then the day will turn into a very long and sad walk.
Will be hard to find in a field full of waist high wheat.

Dave, I like a drone video as much as the next person but mate, come on, that video is fourteen minutes long :scream:

My attention span just isn’t that good :blush:

Don’t forget you can abort Litchi missions by switching to Sport mode on the MP :+1:

Here is a shorter video for Spike that I cooked earlier >>>>>>

Bit late when the propellors have been broken off at 300 feet up by an Angry Bird. :sob:

I like long smooth videos, don’t like those videos with short 3 - 5 second video “bites”, psychologically Jarring !
