Cheers Chris :thumbsup
This particular flight was under 400ft and well over 50 metres from any body or any building and was visable throughout :Rules :thumbsup
P.S. I'm not a member of the BMFA
I'm not really a Hobbit, just look like one. Real name is "Andy".

There is no requirement to be a BMFA member, but it is useful for the insurance! I’ve seen a high performance glider go through the roof of a car before - he was very pleased he was insured! Not sure it would cover you chopping your fingers off when a drone becomes a flying blender! :sarky :rofl

I have a scar on my finger from reaching through a propeller while trying to remove the glow-plug clip! I was about 15 and I got blood all over my father’s nice clean plane!

That Farnham Castle vid I put on you tube and here was programmed at home and it flew itself doing exactly what I told it to do and when, ie height changes/camera angles etc......... all on its own.
Had to check it out. Very cool. Looks professional.
Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.

Nice flight and good vid quality. Brought back memories of Nov 1972, I got off the train there and hoofed it up the hill to the RAMC training centre to start my Military basic training and trade training, the start of a very happy 22 year career. Returned many times for promotion and trade courses.
Why am I here - I should be in my boat fishing!!
