Was a lovely afternoon. Next time…
Will post pictures over the weekend, feeling cream cracker-ed after nearly a 400 mile round trip !.
If anyone is thinking of doing the Viaduct, don’t feckin think about it ,
do it !!!
It’s one of the many masterpiece’s of British Engineering.
My dodgy oval power loop
It’s the farmer there. Apparently, some guys asked him a while back for permission, but he just told them no and to eff off.
I might say exactly that to him, if he asks me to stop flying
Looked ok from where I was sitting, but what do I know
Not bad for my first ever noob FPV 2S Tiny Whoop outdoor flight
Got an orbit and a tap in there… as well as the customary crash landing that booted up Betaflight lol
Full video to follow once I acquire @notveryprettyboy’s footage and edit that in too. I’ll upload it to my “El Smeghead” youtube channel.
LOVIN’ the sound FX!
That’s just a daft one for this thread… I’ve got some quick cuts setup to hopefully make an enjoyable and punchy video
Would love to have seen him try that with me !.
FO with me stand for Fly Over !
Hi all @chrisjohnbaker is coming to the big meet. So if we get trouble, he’ll bullshit the fuck out of em. Chris…
Bullshite is my middle name Karl !.
A couple of years back I emailed the Chesterton Estate office and asked permission, told a definite NO, some bloke had crashed into one of the sails and “it cost a fortune to repair” so they weren’t given permissions any more.
Chessington is crap, I much prefer Thorpe Park
Or Chesterton. Does it come under the same?
Is it an active viaduct?
Just goods trains these days i believe?.
I’ve sussed a place to take-off, fly over and round and come back, all within VLOS
Just not done it yet.
Jay @Proteous just ignores the signs and flys and judging by YT many others do also
Sorry…, typo… it is Friday night
