Happy 50th Vicki

Out to Kemble aerodrome and then Swindon today, for a "Happy 50th Birthday" message for Vicki from John.

Quite difficult and blustery winter conditions, meant several attempts to collect the banner on my part and getting the job done involved more luck than judgement.

This was the first outing for the new GoPro Hero 3 camera and it obviously works quite well, although it slipped down slighty during the flight and will have to be tightened next time.

The plan is to use two cameras in future with different views of the action.

Turkish Delight

The sunshine made an unexpected return this week and gave Airads the perfect opportunity to fly a Turkish marriage proposal over Southend pier.

It was just before dusk and although the sunset was fabulous, the light for filming video wasn't perfect. You can see the highlights here.
