Hi Alan
As they say, third time lucky and well done.
Those drone shots sure add even better views from the air and gives a better understanding of the country you were travelling through.
Thanks foe sharing.

Cheers

What are you using Alan?

I have the DJI Mavic Air and many tests still say are one of the best drone from DJI.

I am guilty of not using mine enough.

Is yours a tap to focus?

The Air requires no focusing, so in regards to recording, it’s just a matter of pressing the red record icon and you are in business.

Great vid Alan, yes third time lucky indeed. A great looking spot.

Isn't it amazing how some things elude us for years. Then a slim chance presents it self and success.

I must admit the drone shots are great,but I'm resisting buying one because, I dont have the stamina of you young blokes setting up, peering at screens, charging banks of batteries, holding microphones etc. Then there's coming home and editing. LOL Yes I'm a Ludite - (Box Brownie for for me)

thanks for sharing.

Hi Phil,
I wouldn't have called you a Ludite, lol Mr Battery Bank

Of things outback and remote I get the sense that there are less people doing the more extreme stuff. The fact that no one had driven the Helena Spring track for many years was a surprise to me.

Coming down the CSR also I noticed even some of the side tracks were not used or not used much this season.
Cheers
Alan
