    Is this video shot from a stock P2V? I really enjoyed the scenery, beautiful countryside there.

    It's not stock , I've a blackhawk antenna from horizon fitted to control for more range (up to .8 of a mile although I usually keep it in visual) and a FPVLR parasitic disc and camera kit on on the uav for video which outperforms the control range.

    Oh, the reason I have boosted the video range above control range is that if I ever lose control signal I can still see which way it's facing and where it is , so when return to home kicks in (which is so slow)! I give it 30-40' back towards me and then switch to atti and retake control . Takes forever to RTH , only happened once .. (I also research where I'm flying first for visual landmarks)

    I really enjoyed filming this, the slog up the crag was hard , like going up stairs for an hour but worth the views which were amazing overlooking Grasmere lake and behind than the touristy one Windermere.

    Had a laugh chatting with some other walkers/climbers

    I really want to go back soon, but back to work next week ...and thanks for your positive comments , I've still got lots to learn about this type of filming and awaiting the rotopixel ordered in March!!!

    :) :)
