Clifton Springs - Lumix Lx5

This is a place in Victoria, Australia where farmland meets residential housing, the beach, ocean and mountains.

Last weekend we were driving around different areas scouting for a place to shoot some AP. We drove to the end of a little court where I saw a small sign that said "public walkway". We pulled over I quickly jumped out to see where it would take me. Just 20 metres down the track I was met with a large open area with what looked to be an RC plane oasis. Perfect green grass, with no trees on a ledge above the clear blue ocean. (seen in pic #5)

A large crowd gathered to ask the usual questions and watch the plane fly. All were amazed with the stable flight and downlink setup.

In the background are the YouYang mountain ranges.

I had to be quick as a large storm was rolling in. I managed to launch the Heptad and snap some nice shots before the clouds rolled in.

This has been my best result so far with the new Lumix. I finally have a reliable setup I am extremely happy with.
