Sheffield from above - Drone footage videos

Recommended Posts

Afternoon all,

 

A friend of mine has starting a YouTube channel with his drone showing.. As you guess it.. Sheffield from above.

 

Here is one of the video's:

 

Has anyone got any ideas of locations or anything you would like to see? Any feedback would be great.

It's okay Rick, you're allowed to take owernship of your drone ;)

 

Wouldn't it be nice to see what Endcliffe Park looks like from the air?

 

Endcliffe Park was the [crash site] of an American B17 bomber during WW2. It suffered engine problems as it was flying over Sheffield and it crashed into Endliffe park.

 

So perhaps an aerial view of the park will give us an idea of what those pilots could see back in 1944.

I was impressed with a drone video I saw on YouTube looking straight down on the whirlpool at Derwent Valley.

Anyone possessing the same amount of common sense as my goodself is certainly not going to be fooled by this video … no siree!

 

By careful measurement of the shadow cast by this ‘drone’, many highly complex mathematical calculations (including cosines, hippopotanuses and three dimensional calculus), I estimate the so called ‘drone’ to be sharing pretty much the same sort of airspace as the mothership in Independence Day!

 

Strange isn’t it, that a starship with an overall diameter of something akin to thirty kilometers hasn’t as yet been reported to the police, or even mentioned on this very forum … why?

Occam’s gentleman’s facial hair remover would suggest the aliens have now teamed up with the Klingons and can add ‘cloaking devices’ to their advanced apocalyptic technology.

‘What next?’ one asks ones self … is it safe to leave your cellars?

 

Considering all the Independence day ships were destroyed by Will Smith in 1996, one can only surmise that the species of this new kind of invisible ship, hell bent on the destruction of planet Earth and accompanying indigenous lifeforms, are going to start causing mayhem somewhere a little less 'blockbustery hit' than Washington where everyone (including the military and crop-dusters) have still got their beady eyes peeled skyward. Where better to start a sneaky planetary obliteration than Sheffield? It all makes sense.

The bylaws restrict noisy model planes that have miniature combustion engines, but electric drones and electric RC planes are fine.

Wrong

 

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) sets the rules on drones in the UK under what is called an air navigation order.

 

An unmanned aircraft must never be flown beyond the normal unaided "line of sight" of the person operating it - this is generally measured as 500m (1,640ft)horizontally or 400ft (122m) vertically

An unmanned aircraft fitted with a camera must always be flown at least 50m (164ft) distance away from a person, vehicle, building or structure

An unmanned aircraft fitted with a camera must not be flown within 150m (492ft) of a congested area or large group of people, such as a sporting event or concert

For commercial purposes, operators must have permission to fly a drone from the CAA
