    Hi,

    I live in the City and don't know Victoria too well. I was wondering if anyone had any good tips for flying locations with huge open space to really test out the P3?

    I've tried parks and flying over the ocean etc but looking for some endless fields with lots of empty space.

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    Cheers.

    I don't know Melbourne well enough to help muchb but I know that Queenscliff and the entrance to Port Phillip would be like a magnet for me.
    Google Earth can be a good resource to search out likely flight locations.

    Why not drive towards Adelaide and film the 12 apostles. Absolutely beautiful!

    The 12 Apostles provide beautiful scenery but there is a steady swarm of tourist helicopters active around them.
    A good reason not to buzz the 12 Apostles.
    If I wanted to fly there, I'd leave it till very early morning or late afternoon when they aren't active.
    But there's plenty of other good coastal scenery in that part of the world.
