Jack Frost visited last night

This short 5 minute 1080P HD clip was recorded at 8.30am on the 19 December, it’s not snow on the roads, it’s just a hard frost. It’s at approximately 30 feet above the ground.

Watch as I miss a telephone line by inches, and also look out for Angus!

It gives me an idea of the road conditions before driving to work…as the first two miles of driving in rural Yorkshire can be very hazardous as the roads are NOT gritted!

I’ve had a cold for a week, so not been feeling well enough to concentrate whilst flying…

So today, built up enough confidence to fly at 400 feet, which is The Drone code Be Drone Safe proposed rules for safe flying of drones maximum “safe” altitude.

What I didn’t expect was the the iPhone application to crash, leaving my drone at 400 feet! It sounds worse than it did, because I was able to restart the application, re-connect to the drone, and issue a return to home.

I could have brought it home using the remote controller, which connects to the drone, the Phone and App connect to the remote controller, and in the event, it loses contact with the remote control will issue a return to home!

So panic over!

I managed to solve the issue with the App, by removing the video cache, and later this afternoon, re-visited 400 feet to take this photograph.
