If you could


#21

Hope the Air it doesn’t get its feet wet, or yours for that matter picking it out of the water! :smile:


#22

I dont mind the air getting wet I won’t chance the Mavic 2 tho
I have a big bag of silica gel waiting :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::rofl:


#23

There must be some Factories or private estates that you would fancy flying around :eyes:


#24

That’s very good; I like that.


#25

I would try a litchi flight across the channel and be first (official) person to cross the channel by drone!


#26

Get the wind right, a Mavic 2, I wonder?


#27

Probably possible Dover/Callais … with additional batteries.

I’m going to try Fort Gilkicker to Ryde … and back … by Litchi at some time. #PushingTheLimit


#28

4,600 Metres :scream:
Nope, won’t do it !

New Grey Arrows Challenge ?


#29

It should manage it - totally still air.

Also - don’t forget that Litchi is pessimistic on flight times.

With the correct VLM parameters, it’s definitely doable.

Whether my nerves will find it so doable is another matter.

Half way //// three-quarter way /// seven-eighth way …. in steps.

Need the weather first.


#30

Follow in a boat to maintain VLOS :wink:


#31

Strobes at night! :+1:


#32

Rainbow props!?


#33

The IoW Air Force would be scrambled! :wink:

Night time is a possibility - far more chance of very still air.


#34

Not that I trust weather forecasts for the next 5 minutes, let alone 7 days!

But …… Southsea … (near enough to Gilkicker! :wink: )

#35

Maybe if you had a Parrot Disco …
Do they work with Litchi ?


#36

Do the Visual Line of Sight rules still apply when flying over open sea ?


#37

If you join the RAF Model Flying Club they have days when you are allowed on base to fly.

Air Traffic also allow flying in a local sports field, however you must phone them for permission first.


#38

Groom Lake


#39

Probably if its still british territory.

Sudbury hall. At sunset. It’s the building from the book tower. Loved that program when I was a kid. I could post on youtube and add the original tune.
