    This flight takes a look at Rottingdean Windmill built in 1802. The large building I swoop around is St Dunstan's, its a hospital thats renowned for the treatment of blinded war veterans. They started in 1915 and its still going strong with todays casualities. We then fly at Newhaven Harbour taking in its lighthouse at the end of a long pier and the old Victorian Fort on the top of the cliffs. Probably the windiest conditions in which I have flown but I am amazed how the Phantom takes it in its stride.

    Had one heart stopping moment when having packed up the quad I walked off leaving behind a rucksack containing my pride and joy Macbook Pro. It took me 45 minutes to get back to it and the sense of relief when I picked it up and everything was still there was overwhelming. That will teach me. I think I will tie it to my leg next time. :shock:

    This is my video. I was with Dave again and I guess he will post his as well.
