very old farm

my flight over an old, dilapidated farmhouse (in Germany)
It was built before 1069, had many owners over the centuries and decays over several decades

You did an excellent job of capturing the whole farm area of houses. You could tell that at one time they were beautiful! Sort of sad, kind of like my body. Well done! BTW! What camera did you use? It's very clear. At first I thought it was a GoPro but there was no distortion. Also, what plane were you flying? The shadow on landing was wonderful!

@quailbird: Thanks for your comments.
I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37 (weight with battery approx. 146g).
The aircraft is an enlarged version (wingspan 2050mm) of an old Slow Flyer "Bleriot II".

Is that what you meant by wrong thread Dieter? It was me? Ha ha...apologies!

My location is Fliegensville, amd like Margaritaville it's a state of mind, I'm fortunate to have great surf, sun sand & s*x , living on the Gold Coast we grew up with it .....

Not a bad place, except too crowded with Southerners nowadays...

Anyway, what can you do....well....don't start me!

The brashy trashy 'heart' of the Gold Coast is a part of town called 'Surfers Paradise'....

And not too many locals ever go there......but originally the area now known as Surfers Paradise, was an area once known as Elston (I think for a Southport Post Masters, wife's name??) Anyway, 'tis how I came up with the name Elston Airways, Elston Airways now 'Code Shares' some flights out of Emerald Lakes with my 'A325' Cathay Pacific Airbus...funnily enough, there once was a cafe in Surfers called the 'Cathay Cafe'....anyway enjoy ELSTON AIRWAYS 'AD'

Elston Airways 'Ad' June 2011 from Dec 2010 (3 min 40 sec)

A little Hobby King TB-20, a beautiful little semi scale model of a brilliant tourer....and a PERFECT simple safe easy camera platform

At 2:39 is Q1, a one time 'Tallest Residential Tower in the World', located at 2800′22″S 15325′46″E and 322.5 meters (1058ft) high....not bad for a little foamy, yes DX6i 2.4 GhZ technology..great stuff...but technically a different atmosphere and a different temperature....for a 11.1v - 3 cell battery powered little brushless motor machine....Just Brilliant!!!!

A flight from last night over downtown. Almost dead calm conditions and the light was just about right too. Perhaps a tad long but hey, the song ain't so bad and there's always the FF bar!
