    Lads & Lassies,

    Here is a wee video of the Wolf of Badenoch's castle in the middle of Lochindorb. This guy was a bit of a nutter. Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan laid waste to Elgin with a wee bit of rape and pilage. Dina fret tho he is long deed.



    Cheers muckers

    Aye lad,

    Watch where ye post it. According to CAA Elgin is in a :-

    "Military Aerodrome Traffic Zone, similar to civil Aerodrome Traffic Zones, typically protect military aerodromes in the same way."

    Zone, cause oh lossie am thinkin. Dina get yersel inta trouble.

    Am nae sure but a call tae the crabs will probably get ye permission.

    Could you link me to a website that notifies me of these no-fly zones. So far I have been using DJI geo stuff.

    You need to be careful flying the drone around Elgin. I am 20 minutes away from Elgin and even for filming a TV C we needed permission to shoot, and when we asked about using a drone to fly our Red camera we got denied permission and we where using someone with PFAW etc.

    Oh well looks like I will have to give using the drone in elgin a miss. How would you go about getting a non-commercial pass to fly in elgin?

    What are the chances, I notice your from Keith! I live next to the distillery.

    I am out in Grange, house up for sale, in the process of relocating to Dundee as wife has taken up a new GP position. I love it here in Grange but time to move, makes it easier for me travel when filming and working on films etc. Cullen beach is good place to fly the drone. Some super nice places here. You could get permission for Elgin Cathedral, our problems is that the RED on a large drones comes in pretty heavy and that was the big issues, plus all the media at the time was negatively biasing drones.

    We will be sitting the needed courses to get the PFAW to allow us to fly commercially as due to the difficulty and cost getting someone with PFAW to fly with a RED or Alexa camera i thought it better we did it ourselves.

    Andrew.
