Apologies for the jerkiness. The GoPro is fixed and I'm still learning to fly, reallly. But in the wide expanses of the Great Victoria Desert, Western Australia, it was a lot easier to test height and range limits without fear of inadvertently slicing up someone's washing/toddlers. We're about 400 unsealed kilometres from civilization. There's a much larger, well-established camp about 2 hours' drive south of here. Otherwise, those there humans you see are all the people around for a ways.
Learned a lot about tuning and started to get more, real nose-in flying happening - without doing the over~the~shoulder cheat thing - out in these infinite paddocks. Then I lost it (it's a DJI Naza Flamewheel basic quad set-up) in the unwise heights - lost sight of it and clicked to autoland failsafe. Alex managed to find the UNDAMAGED beastie on that occasion. The next time, however, I lost it much farther off and none of our afternoon traipses turned it up. Still, became much more familiar with tuning - though I had yet to tune it properly for the above video - and got some good fundamental flying practice. The Naza and Flamewheel make it almost too easy for the beginner. But now I am getting to know the Wookong-M, which doesn't really seem to need me there at all - as long as it can scare up a GPS signal. But all that's another story. The star of this fillum has been sacrificed unto it, anyway, and we can assume still sits under a bush somewhere in the zone of the next video. He did good stuff. One day I hope it'll trip over and freak out a soil-sampling fieldie in the area.
