Nice one, pitch it to the the environment agency in warrington i,m sure they would be interested. Plus try the rangers at Thurstaston, i,m sure they would love an arial of Hilbre.

yeah I am going to fly from west kirby to Hilbre, I had to speak to steve from wirralcams to make sure that his wireless cameras don't mess with my video transmitter, he did say something about the rangers and wildlife so I will have to fly high (400ft) to ensure I don't disturb any birds.

you can get a basic DJI Phantom ready to fly for 350, super easy to fly with GPS on board so if you get lost it will fly itself home and land for you smile

I did this video with a phantom and a zenmuse gimbal




there is a growing number of us on the wirral now and I run a forum for them too.

Hi, what's the forum name ? Tried to PM you but you're over your limit.

Would like to know if this is any good and could I control it using what I see on my iphone, or would I have to be in line of sight ?

Hi Wheels, great videos, you may already do this, but have you considered carrying out roof/building surveys with the quad. I am a local building surveyor and can think of many uses, I also work with commercial roofing contractors who I think would be very interested. PM me if you are interested.

Wheels - that is just so good. Not just fascinating with the bird's eye view but the commercial possibilities too.
