It should be noted that the previous years’ committee had a sense of humour …

OK. Here we go.

Claiming a bonus point for no other buildings within 100m (you’ll have to verify that on a map as I wasn’t willing to go too high).
And a bonus point for a Drone Scene entry.


Nearest building is about 250 metres, Jez.

All good for maximum points :slight_smile:

Not the best day for flying, at least here at GADC Challenge HQ

But some brave souls ventured out - click the pic for the latest leaderboard updates!


Might be worth checking on the official listed buildings website - Search the List - Find listed buildings, monuments, battlefields and more | Historic England - the website linked above isn’t comprehensive and doesn’t list all listed buildings.

Cheers for the tip. I’ve just checked and sadly that particular building isn’t listed.

Leatherhead Delivery Office

Plus at least 10 Red Royal Mail Vehicles

It’s bloody addictive this. I’m having a self-enforced day off today and I still find myself brainstorming possible locations.

Hats off to the @Challenges_Committee and whoever had the original idea for putting together such an engaging and well-thought out competition. It’s already got me rethinking how I use my drone and where I fly it.


Taken this morning around 08:20 at the Buttercup Leys development, Chellaston Lane, Derby. I claim one bonus point for, “2 or more”.


Thanks for the tip Ian. For the purposes of this competition we are using the British listed buildings website as it is, in our opinion, easier to use. So, if your building is not listed there, regardless of any other source no bonus may be claimed
