    Awesome stuff, Karl. Been there a few times- the vid looks amazing and well put together. I'm from Newcastle Co Down, getting a P4 next week and can't wait. Bit scared to fly it though!

    Have you had a drone before? They are really easy to fly. Make sure to calibrate and do pre flight checks. I've read that to fly too close to reflective surfaces such as water can end in disaster. I've had no problems at all. Live it. Pity about our weather and my work schedule. Gets in the way of making more videos and gaining experience. Enjoy. I look forward to seeing your work.

    Had a Syma x5-c for a few months, was getting quite confident until it flew away in the wind. I know what it's like to lose a £20 drone, a phantom is another thing altogether! Baby steps and big, open spaces first I think. I'm an outdoor instructor and hope eventually to make some mountainbiking/bouldering/hiking vids etc. Time and weather will tell. Thanks.

    Nice video. Your opening sound effect is of a helicopter. Suggest recording the actual sound of your own drone and using that instead.

    Had a wee go this evening in Donard Park. Was expecting it to be stable, but it was way better than I hoped, even when the wind picked up. Managed to go a whopping 150m away- scary stuff! Panicked a bit and pressed RTH, it landed at my feet.

    Glad you had a good time. There are a few failsafes.The map view is great.I love the way it draws a line between yourself and drone. If not using a mobile device such as me (iPad) ensure you have cached maps of area at home before you leave.look forward to seeing your vids.Have followed you.

    I'll try if it's not too windy. A simple flyover of the beach- no fancy stuff yet. Don't expect too much. Ps. How do you follow someone?

    Glad I did - thanks for the challenge. Got it to about 550m, then someone talked to me and I lost VLOS and brought it back. Can't believe just how stable and easy this is - I'm afraid I'm hooked!! I think the Mournes are next!

    Thanks, though to be fair it's the subject matter and not my film making skills. I was just concentrating on flying it out and back and not losing it, rather than planning creative shots for a video. Hare's gap is lovely - there are loads of interesting features in the Mournes - Bernagh slabs, the castles, Binnian tors etc. Just wish it was the summer!
