    Second video with the drone, still need to work on smoother movement. Exploring what used to be the old american adventure theme park, derbyshire, spend many hours here as a kid - now waste land.

    Wow, many good memories from that place in its day. Such a shame to see it now its all gone. I did a fly over of Camelot theme park a while back, there are still bits of that left. Great video thanks for sharing.

    i did have a quick look while the boss wasn't looking. Looked a busy/crammed place, surprised they didn't have a paddle steamer with a lake like that

    Very nice - went there many, many moons ago. Custer with a Yorkshire accent was my favourite.

    I found detuning the yaw sensitivity helped a big lot with curing my "choppiness". ie. it takes a lot of movement away from centre on the left stick to make it rotate. Helps with panning shots.

    Saying that, it isn't that choppy and good for a second video!
