    Scanning the fields........

    Good for you Cheddarman! Keeping other animals safe if you spot them whilst flying is the main thing, so I applaud you and the farmer. You, like me appear to live in a nice agricultural part of the UK.

    Hi. I’m a newbie from Nottingham, UK.

    Hi Dozzle, welcome to the group. There's loads of useful info on here, so just browse around. I'm from a few miles N of you - near the top end of Robin Hood line. Just enjoy flying!!

    A different view on the world . . . And I found it fascinating! Thanks :)

    Sensible new laws in the UK

    Going back to the 1950's, when I was a little boy, I remember that the Vulcans from RAF Finningley (Now Robin Hood airport) could fly low on certain days of the week. I have strong recollections of seeing them so low that I could see the rivets on the fuselage and wings. Something that always...

    Wedge-tails take out multiple UAVs

    Just as Homo Sapiens set up "No Fly Zones", why can't eagles have them? ;)

    Bolsover castle, Phantom 4

    I've known Matt for a number of years and been on a couple of his courses - excavating the site down Whitwell Wood and also the project to get more info about the possibility of Elmton being of Medieval roots.

    Bolsover castle, Phantom 4

    Yes, Bowser is an interesting place. (Oops!! - Should read Bolsover - they're not locals on here). I'm always cautions about flying near to English Heritage sites, but you've got some nice shots of the main castle there. Did you know of the ditch/embankments that exist to the NE and SE of the...

    Lovely shots of Helmsdale and nice to see that memorial to the Clearances (?) included.

    Drone Disabler . . . A link from "Pinterest"

    I'm not advocating a "drone disabler", just pointing something that an irresponsible person might build and use.

    Drone Disabler . . . A link from "Pinterest"

    In my e-mails this morning, there was a message from my "Pinterest" subscription. One of the links was to an article about "Build a Wi-Fi drone disabler with Raspberry Pi". A link to the associated article is Build a Wi-Fi Drone Disabler with Raspberry Pi | Make: I haven't read the full...

    Seals on a Scottish beach - Phantom 4k

    And I reckon there's well over a hundred there on the beach!! Looking at their behaviour you didn't seem to disturbed them at all.

    Mary Colliery No.2 pit, Lochore, Fife, Scotland - Phantom4k

    It's so sad that we've lost our mining in the UK. In the area where I live, from in the teens of collieries within 10 miles, they've all gone. Now there are 4 headstocks - 2 each at Pleasley and Clipstone. Back in the 50's all the local villages had a colliery, which encouraged its growth. I...

    ball rescue

    Drones are useful at all levels! A nice piece of PR. The only comment I will make is that it would have been nice to see the expression on the boy's face as his precious ball was blown towards the shore.

    My neighbors are mad at me...

    Homo Sapiens don't like others intruding into our privacy do we & get a bit cross if others take a peek in . . . ;)
