Well got some new reading
Applied for all latest info on airspace in NZ , even sent out a proper airspace info guide instead of just a paper with drone laws on it,,some good reading ,nothing to new but well explained.:)..simple email and they sent these out..sort of got involved in something I should not have with airport so time to refresh the brain,also states in this book army and Cessna come down lower than 250ft which started my original argument with them,,they lied to me stating NO craft flys below 400ft,,another reason to be careful out there,

Yep I've got a motorised parachute thingy flies up and down the beach.
I've often thought about just "popping up" beside him.

If you're really good, fly up behind it, pop over the top, and fly backwards to get the expression on his/her face as you drop down in front of it! That would be pricelss!! 😁🤣 (Yeah, I know. Illegal as all get out, but it would be hilarious!) I'm a little sadistic when it comes to the powered 'chutes, myself. Too many of them around my part of the world...

Pilot friend of my dad, flying around our area.

With a P3, that Cell tower is about 2 mins out of my battery distance from home, but I know it must be about 200' tall tops.
