Flying Drones for Fun!

Great Weather for Flying Drones Today!

After a quick check of the local weather last night, it appeared that this morning would be clear. Not only that, but sunny skies with very light winds. So, charge batteries, controller and screen...

Flying Drones

After dropping my daughter off at school, I headed for the Beachside Leisure Centre in Bowleaze, Weymouth. I have always liked the look of this place but wanted to see it properly from the sky.

Upon entering the main building, I asked to speak with the manager. I thought it best to ask for permission to take off from his premises and got to speak with the company owner.

After a chat about flying drones, equipment and so on, I headed out and went through the usual checks:

  • Wind speed
  • Batteries
  • Equipment
  • People
  • Takeoff/landing area etc

…and up I went.

I will post a video from the DJI Phantom 2 below but I couldn't believe how amazing this part of Weymouth looks from the sky. Crystal clear water, white, sandy beaches…wow.

Click on the thumbnails below to check out some screen grabs. They are all stills taken from 4k footage at around 100m in the sky and check out the video too.
