    So I woke to the thought but.... Haven't been there for a few years. Thinking pull up from water, pan up to show the Quarries edge, up to 400ft, scan area, then further up-tilt the camera to show extended area. BUT...

    The water in the quarry was muddy; never seen it anything but clear. A new home had appeared down stream. And the view from 400ft wasn't quite what I had envisioned..... lol maybe next time. I'll learn!

    Looked good to me. The surrounding countryside is great. Good place to fly. Those electrical wires give you any compass trouble.?

    Not that I remember but the lines were behind me and I really only went "mostly" straight up and back down. I was more worried about coming down on them! And at that point I was looking at the bird not the screen....

    Edit: I just watched this again. Been a while. Looks like those power lines were almost directly over me:( But still I don't remember being affected or having any onscreen errors.
