For me I can see the video landing page and play it with no issue, of the pics only the first one loads automatically, the last three show as links which then open in separate window when I click on them. It must be a browser setting thing.

When I've walked those parts of London at night I've never thought of it as pretty or decorative, but certainly looks nice in those images. Maybe it's because when I've walked it I'm knickered and just thinking of a comfy hotel bed.

Haha, I'm not a fan of things that eat me so think I'll give that a miss! 

Some pics from filming from Drake up over the Thames in London a couple of weeks ago...

70 hours of airtime plus over 650 miles flown, this was bound to happen sometime! :huh: :lol:

Was flying the M2P with Active Track and the enhanced Obstacle Avoidance on (it's called APAS, Advanced Pilot Assistance System) which is meant to fly you autonomously around obstacles in all directions but it decided to shimmy me 5m right of my actual flight path into a 16m high branch of a tree!

I always carry a spare drone so used that to complete the job then check on the M2P. The front right props were firmly wedged under some bark so the tree surgeon was the best option to recover it. Damage is a new set of props, I've flown a couple of test flights since and everything else seems just fine!

Did a large roof in Hackney last week, though I'd pop the images into a 'digital twin' program! It's not perfect as I wasn't planning this so didn't take enough obliques but gives a good overview!

There are 9 roof areas I was asked to inspect and I took a total of 265 images. 95% of them are Nadir so don't capture the verticals so well hence the few dodgy bits. It was run through DroneDeploy this time. :)

It's not cheap either but the other current drone which does that kind of close, no-GPS internal inspection is the Elios 2 and that's over twice the price!

mmm.. Makes me want to carry a cricket bat around with me. Purely for defensive purposes of course.

This years Reith lectures have a section about AI and attack drones for military purposes. Good in the right hands, bad in the wrong hands.

Kargu military attack drone, maybe I need a bigger cricket bat.

That's a minimum too! :lol:

They're not bad shots for a Mini 2, they're not that good in low light. Would have been much nicer with a decent sized sensor.

I'd have liked to be sending the invoice! Dread to think how much it cost!

You’d be made for the rest of your natural.

Money is generally not a problem for most things. I worked and lived in Saudi for 4 years (2009-13) and know from experience that, despite some of the shortcomings of the country, it is not as bad as some like to portray.
