    I am lucky enough to have spent a week based on the Gower coast in South Wales with a week of fine weather, low winds and a Phantom 3 Professional. Here is a compilation of some of my favourite footage:

    Thanks very much! It was quite a nervous project as I'd not flown over water much. The lighthouse shots at the start required a 6 mile hike and then flying around 800m from the beach in strong offshore winds, but the P3 performed like a star.

    I know what you mean, it's bad enough flying over land let alone water:eek:

    I live right next to an estuary (river crouch) but very reluctant about flying over it, one day I'll venture out though;)

    So again hats off to ya for having the balls to do that with your new P3;)

    Some very nice views of the scenery, Seeing flights over water always impresses and terrifies me in equal measure !

    Some great shots Nick, it reminds me of one of my favourite rugby poems, " around the Gower in an hour"

    Thanks Milly. I'm not familiar with that poem and can't find any reference to it.

    I am an Abertillery boy that spent many years living in Shropshire and playing rugby for a Shropshire club. Our club president was from West Wales and at club dinners he used to recite a very nice poem he called "around the Gower in an hour" You would have to be their to appreciate it.
    Keep the videos coming.

    Thanks! I just edited in some more footage that I missed the first time around. Makes you realise how lucky the opportunities rendered by a few days of calm weather give to flying compared to the days since that visit..
