Looks like you popped your water wings John !.
Also try “Dell Quay” while your that way (great meal in “The Crown & Anchor”)
at the Quay (if you walk past the outside seating area ,along the shoreline, great places to fly).
Also the “The Anchor Bleu” at Bosham Quay.

Nice pics, John … they get you The Coastal Flyer Badge, too! :+1:

Visited your places Chris but too much wind to fly on that day. Would still like a meet up someday even if its not to fly. Got questions to tap you for! Given up early starts when I retired but am free most days except Tuesdays.

I’ve stopped using my landing mat. It’s like a big sign saying “I’M FLYING A DRONE”… Anyone else?

I always use mine to protect the drone. Quite happy to talk to anyone about drone flying. Have enlightened a number of people about flying and been thanked for it!

Good work. You’ve posted the RAW images here, have you tried processing them yet?

Not yet. Sometime in the near future

Here’s a couple of mine from the meet up with @Manty / John


And one of the pair of us



great shot of Bosham. See the difference in sharpness between the Air and yours. I have to improve!!!

They are very different cameras that makes a difference, but I still think that the Raw files you showed me was a soft image and I am not sure why.

I always use the mat. Having stripped by racing quad motors down a few times, you would be surprised how much junk can get caught inside a motor. :open_mouth: That said, I can see where you are coming from; but as said elsewhere, I use it as an opportunity to help educate others who know only the scary press stories. In my experience, when you start talking about the safety systems, geo-fencing, etc, everyone understands the difference between model fliers and toy fliers and are more than interested.

Good shout… Might get the mat back out! At least until my new skids arrive from the States :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
