    Some of you will have heard of Cecilia Giménez, this lady renovated the historic Ecce Homo fresco of so it looked like "crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic".

    Well this is a Spanish Architectural equivalent, this medieval salt tower has been lovingly restored with concrete giving it an authentic feel.

    Flying over water is always a bit nervy, or squeaky bum time as we say here in the UK

    Your Batting a 1000. American term for your good.
    Again!

    Question. Are your gains stock. Those turns around a point are great. You didn't sneak a 3 axis gimbal in the mix did you.

    Great work always.

    thanks for the comments, appreciated

    i did play with the Futaba T8J settings but ended up flying "as is"; the futaba certainly gives a more accurate feel for the craft especially in those turn around point. Its mainly hand/eye coordination, and to be honest a lot of practice in a park rotating around some rugby posts (not good footage I can assure you). I did try some rotational stabilisation in the edit, it smooths things somewhat but the main objective is keeping the object at the same position in the view.
