    Shoebury Common beach is a very popular shingle beach which is situated two miles from Southend in Essex and enjoys the benefits of adjacent car parking, an on site café, grassy hinterland.

    This was a very early start; wanted to fly soon after dawn to get smooth air, good light and no people. I think I managed to achieved this. This was also my 1st real flight over water with the FPV goggles, the low tide gives a good effect and if there is a problem I can wade out and retrieve the drone :)

    After the flight I realised one of the carbon fibre props had been damaged by a stone and hence significant jellification on the descent shot, FCP stabilisation made it worse.

    The music by Kevin MacLoed (incompetech.com) adds to the atmosphere

    That one's really nice too
    I envy your nerve flying over the water like that.
    A pleasant view thanks
