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.

intertesting,

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 :joy:

Big balls badge I think :clap:

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.
