    Just enjoying the weather flying my Vision around a lighthouse in my hometown of Howth, Co. Dublin, Ireland.

    Nice video - I'm envious of your scenary. I question - tell me you weren't tempted to land on that helipad?

    Haha I'd be lying if I said the thought hadn't crossed my mind ;)

    Super nice, Mal! And, yeah, it looks like that helipad was made just for you. ;-)

    Very good footage. Have you added a gimbal to the vision or is it a vision +?
    Where were you while flying?

    cheers

    Awesome footage man

    I would have been too tempted to land on the helipad then took back off :)

    Yep its a phantom vision with taco supreme 2 axis gimbal.
    If you stop the video at 47 seconds I'm directly in the middle of the frame about 1 third of the way from the top of the screen wearing a white top behind the wall. I was flying maybe 750m distance away at the furthest point.
    I may have landed on the helipad, but I may not have added that to a public video on youtube ;)

    Beautiful views, looks like a very nice area. Congratulations on the nice Phantom flight. I wish I had some nice places to fly mine where I live. :)

    Thanks mate, open your mind.....
    Believe me I'm lucky with the likes of this but if you really look, you WILL find beautiful and amazing spots all around you. From scenic to industrial. You dont need cliffs and sunlight for wicked pictures....

    Just think outside the box :)
