Impromptu Norwich Meet Up!


Many Thanks to @UnluckyTimmeh for arranging a very short notice meet up with myself and @PaperCrane, to try and capture the Norwich Big Boom Fireworks.
We met at Tim’s place of work and took off from the Car Park at the rear, and went straight up to try and capture the Fireworks at a distance.
Many thanks Tim for the invite !!.
I am going to try and get out tomorrow night for yet another crack at footage, somewhere local.
If anyone is in the area, and fancies a meet, let me know !! (weather permitting)


Yes, thanks Tim and Chris. It was a great opportunity to try something different - flying at night!

Frankly, I was bricking it. The reduced visibility made me nervous, but Chris was as confident as usual, even sending the Air way up, and relying on RTH to get his baby to come back.

Footage may follow - I’m not convinced I got the MP focusing properly but I’ve not checked properly yet. Footage from @chrisjohnbaker and @UnluckyTimmeh looked good though.

If nothing else and it all comes out blurry, at least it was a good learning experience.


Na !, Russell, ya done good !, shame I didn’t use the Mavic Pro that sat on the table!.
The Air was losing signal an embarrassing amount of times, and RTH kicked in once signal was lost, and that was straight up at 70 metres !.
Great Meet with the Guys, no cock-ups!, good sensible flying, and looking at my footage tonight, hopefully something to be able to show for our “meet-up”.
Ideal location for inner City flying, we must do it again, when the opportunity arises again !.
But next time, def Mavic Pro, or the Phantom 4 !.
And !, certainly with strobes next time boys !!!


Hi chaps.
No problem at all. Glad you enjoyed it. I hope Anissa wasn’t too cold.

This is what I’ve cobbled together so far:

Catch up with you all soon I hope.


Bloody hell that’s so much better than mine! I’m going to see what I can do with a bit of fiddling about.

Definitely wishing I hadn’t been such a bloody coward and sent the bird up a lot higher than I did!


Think a beer in The Murderers is in order. When I get back from US.


Works for me :slight_smile:


i think next time chaps, definitely need them strobes !, then we would see the drones !
I’m always up for a beer !
