• Wales Camping Trip – Black Mountains (watch in HD)

    What a fab weekend of camping in Wales. I spent 3 nights out in the hammock which was amazing. The first night I met up with Lee and Sam as well as meeting the landowner, Owain. On the Friday, Lee had to go home and Ant (Manstuff TV) turned up for a couple of nights. It really was a crack’n good weekend out. The location is in the Black Mountains near Dragon’s Back Ridge and Waun Fach about 5 miles south of Talgarth in the Brecon Beacons.

    If you’d like to get in touch with Owain to get the details and costs for camping in the woodland (it’s super cheap), he’s said to email him directly: owain@owain.net

  • Caen Hill Flight of Locks (Drone Video)

    A lovely day out today so we stopped to check out the Caen Hill Flight of Locks. What an amazing set of locks! Does take a bloody long time to get through them all though.

    The 29 locks have a rise of 237 feet in 2 miles (72 m in 3.2 km) or a 1 in 44 gradient. The locks come in three groups. The lower seven locks, Foxhangers Wharf Lock to Foxhangers Bridge Lock, are spread over 1.2 km. The next sixteen locks form a steep flight in a straight line up the hillside and are designated as a scheduled monument. Because of the steepness of the terrain, the pounds between these locks are very short. As a result, 15 locks have unusually large sideways-extended pounds, to store the water needed to operate them. A final six locks take the canal into Devizes

  • Uffington White Horse Hill and Castle

    Posted on by rob

    This flight is at the Uffington White Horse Hill and Castle (Remains) (http://j.mp/29isF0H) which is located just outside of Swindon to the East. This is part of the Ridgeway and managed by National Trust.

    Anyone familiar with Sandy and his Jacklore knives will almost certainly recognize the chalk horse you’ll see in this film.

  • Westmill Wind Farm

    Posted on by rob

    A little flight around Westmill Wind Farm and testing out Letchi software for my Phantom 3 Pro. It seems to be an awesome replacement for the DJI Go software and it’s an approved application from what I can see. It does lack a few things like some of the more advanced calibrations, but it makes up for it in super cool features and more autonomous flight modes. Very sweet.

    Enjoy this short film of the small local wind farm (and solar farm).
