    Very short video of some clips at a wind farm in Wales. Unfortunately it was rather blustery which was exacerbated when downwind of the rotors which themselves cause a lot of turbulence. I had permission from the resident turbine engineer and the car I buzzed was my own......so please don't think I was scaring the locals and giving drones a bad name; we were the only people for many miles around.

    Thanks for sharing. I've wondered what it's like up near the blades when the turbine is running. We don't live too far from a factory and see the blades being transported on the highway quite often.

    Glad you liked it. I believe these are the biggest land-based turbines in Europe. There is a door in each blade and the engineers can somehow get inside and do repairs and things
