A cold cold spring morning in Surrey, UK

I went out to get some pics of a local marina this morning (saturday) and thought i'd put a few from the sortie up

It was a very cold morning so I managed one photo flight and a front facing video flight before my fingers gave in to the temperature

Boy! It's miserable when your hands are that cold, but you got a fine video.

That is nice work!! The video was interesting to watch. I am guessing you have a BL motor? It seemed to have a lot of power!

The stills are nice. There is a lot of water there, and a lot of nice boats.

Fine pictures Alex! Wonderful views of that marina and surrounding countryside! Looks like you had good visibility on that day too - amazing the way you can see the tall buildings in London on the horizon!

Congrats mate

Cheers for the replies everyone

Was very clear, especially for the time of day.

I'm running a multiplex brushless with a hacker esc and a 2100 3cell tp lipo.

It is powerful but not as I expected. Think I need to experiment with different props or something.

MNG - No near fatalities this time! That tape i put on at the last meet has changed the characteristics completely

Thanks again people, Alex
