No seagulls were bothered during the making

Fun at the cliffs along from Lyme Regis… fingers were shaking quite a lot but I managed to get a few seconds of reasonable footage. Sorry about the track, only had 26 seconds of free music that wasn’t a ring tone on this phone so just had to loop it…


'cuse my french but FANFUCKINGTASTIC !!!

One of my favouritest places in the whole world- don’t like the looks of some of those cliff cracks though…

Do your props always show?

Yup, flying a diatone 349 so no second camera. Just the runcam. Small price to pay for the compact body

Ah right, does the camera have enough resolution to crop out the props if need be?

You may be overlooking that this is posted in #videos-fpv (Videos by Racing Quad and FPV Drone).

So - cinematic excellence is not an objective.

A small, lightweight, and almost indestructible (these guys don’t always return to earth like the owner of a Mavic Pro will be needing) camera is used.

Likewise, no gimbal. Gimbals are more weight and “delicate” little things.

I’m not overlooking anything. I was interested to find out if something out of the ordinary was caught on the camera, could the props be edited out to to improve the end result.

Anything CAN be edited out of anything.

I actually quite like seeing them in these vids. Kind of expected.

Yeah you could crop, resolution is pretty good for what is a really tiny little unit and looks good on a full size TV. . The camera plus lens is the size of a thimble. Pretty amazing really…


Real nice flight. It’s harder than it looks.

Nice stick work, Tom. If your fingers were shaking it didn’t show. I really need to dig out my long range 5inch quad and get some footage, yours has inspired me.


Excellent :+1:

That wasn’t even long range…! Straight forward 3" with usual 200mw vtx setup. I DO have some tbs gear waiting to be setup on my 5" as soon as I get a chance… THEN we’ll have start having some fun!

Out of my fleet I only have one quad setup to carry a HD camera and that’s one of my Vortex 285’s. I call it a long range, or endurance, quad as I’m using EzUHF on it and it carries a 2200mAh battery with room to spare. By today’s standards it’s quite dated as the Fusion Gen1 FC is just a fancy Naze32 F1 board but it suits my slow reaction times.


And I thought I was doing quite well being techie and impenetrable! :bowing_man:

But could be as a result of seeing a UFO or similar :grimacing:

In 1952 US fighter jets encountered two chavs like this in the sky above Bermuda. They were never heard of again… :space_invader:
