were you flying from the shore or on a boat?
From the shore boat empty
braver than me then, 2 miles out to sea, what drone is that
Mavic Pro 2 was quite windy took a while to come back 8700 ft
Nice photo Andy. Fairplay heading out to sea that far! Is there a Balls of Steel badge?
have you got aerial extensions or is standard handset?
I flew just over 2 1/2 miles to P&O Ventura (see P&O Pair) I had about 5 mins out there before getting down to 50% battery and headed for home. Signal was very good at that distance. I did it very early in the morning when there was hardly any wind.
Nice pic and fair play for risking such a long flight over water!
I see the bots in the river Mersey near me and instantly think NOPE and the river is less than a mile wide
Big balls badge I think
Why not try. if you’ve a decent insurance to give you extra peace of mind & you’re not getting g high wind warnings.
Remember to fly into the wind going though so you’re not battening it coming back.
I took my M2Z out to a lighthouse when I was up in Scotland. Still managed to keep VLOS surprisingly & only when I got back & reviewed flight data did I realise it was 1.4km away. I’d google earthed measured it before getting there & got @850m so I guess I must’ve got the wrong start point lol.
Great shots though as flew in low over the sea to rise up onto the rocks.
