    Good evening everyone first post, and a question: IF :mrgreen:

    a group of people and their campers wanted their first meet-up on a campsite in Derbyshire (June next year) recording in a couple of fly-bys
    what would it cost cash
    for one of you to come out and spend and hour capturing it for posterity in a ten minute video?

    Interested, PM me here or via my site http://demountablecampergroup.com/
    thanks and good luck with your site

    Richard

    Technically that wouldn't be allowed unless the owner had paid £s for a licence.
    However if anyone is nearby they might do it for free and a bit of petrol money maybe.

    As I understand from the numerous threads on the legality of doing something for reward,
    certainly wouldn't want anyone incriminating themselves on a public forum!

    I was hoping to find someone vaguely local to Matlock that might be filming locally (as the video's on youtube) & who could make a couple of passes over us and then include it along with the derbyshire scenery,

    as I say feel free to contact me for a phone number even, over the holidays anytime...

    Pay my flight over & I would do it for nothing :D :lol: (Just Kidding) Like 4WD stated, I am sure someone could do it for fuel costs. Good luck & Merry Christmas.

    If this makes it any clearer I was thinking,
    fly it off a neighbouring field make a couple of passes over campsite (maybe 80' high)
    take in a bit of local scenery, land and go home, supply five minutes on a flash drive or similar.....






    get paid

    so anyway you know how to contact me,

    in other news I was considering buying-using-returning a quad from Maplin but looking at their site's return policy doesn't fill me with confidence TBH

    That wouldn't be a good idea anyway as you really need a few flights to feel confident with it and actually turning out half decent video is not just a matter of zooming over and downloading the results.
    Plenty of time yet for a response on here and if not try again in a few weeks time.
    I would do it if it was within 20 miles or so!

    No, your'e quite right, and in any case I'd almost certainly damage or scuff it long before I got anywhere near proficient with it.
    posting an enquiry Christmas week isn't likely to elicit much response and I wouldn't really expect much in public anyway,

    We were sort of prepared for the pro-rates and presumably they are ambitious on account of the insurance consideration,
    not that there's much point in getting into private/commercial use of identical machines these forums seem littered with comment on that without me restarting it :D

    I would say viewtopic.php?f=20&t=31760
    on this very forum as well, I wonder if insurance would cover operator collateral damage anyway :shock:
