    Here's one of my latest video's filmed at Flamborough Head. Weather conditions were perfect and I never realised how beautiful the coast line was in this part of the country. I met a couple of photographers down on the beach who were quite intrigued to see a flying camera.

    I have posted this video to YouTube and was surprised to find it can be viewed at 1440. I posted it at 1080 so how can this be? Obviously it has been upscaled, but why haven't my other posts been upscaled also?

    I like it! Great shots following the contours and very smooth. I get the impression that this wasn't 'normal' weather and I'd like to see it alongside one with big waves. Now there's a challenge!

    Thanks Ffwrnais, it was a challenge just flying over the water. Luckily the sea was so calm I new if I had to jump in to retrieve it it wouldn't be so bad :D

    Tyrohne, there were no filters used. To be honest, I had to look on the internet to find out what an ND Filter was! Anyway, the video was shot very early in the morning therefore it was too low in the sky to cause any issues (sun shining through the props). I have experienced this problem in the past though and have resorted to making a DIY sun shade positioned over the top of the GoPro lens.

    Great video. I picked up at P4 this week and will be in Filey this fall. Looking forward to filming Flamborough and Filey from the air. Cheers.

    Great video. As a photographer I went to Flamborough head to take pics of the chalk stacks, I wasn't too impressed at the time. Obviously getting a birds eye view of them gives you a new perspective. I'm at Spurn point this Saturday so I'm hoping for good weather.

    Very nicely done. Was the bloke facing the cliffs at around 1:40 in having a pee?
