One of my photos

Eye in the sky

It looks like I now have a hobby at last. For my 60th birthday the kids clubbed together and bought me a drone. A proper serious one. Apparently there are implications and extra conditions for drones of 250g and over, so this one is 249.5g but very sophisticated. In fact it is so sophisticated that is knows that my house is within the Gatwick airport no-fly geofenced zone so it refuses to even take off indoors!

It looks like I am starting on a steep learning curve of the technical aspect and the legal restrictions. While it is frustrating that I can’t even test it at home or in the garden, it is so small I can easily bung it in a backpack and head out somewhere remote to get the hang of it.

Expect some aerial photography here some time!
