A weekend in this historic Nottinghamshire town began with torrential rain. Luckily, at dawn on the second day, beautiful blue skies and flat calm.
With hardly a soul about, the MPP could admire the scenery. The low sun was a hindrance in the downstream direction, however.

Aloha Roger,

     Nice video, great conditions!  Well, except for the sun downstream as you noted.  Could even see urban campers in the bushy peninsulas.

     Good to see you spent your time well over there.

Aloha and Drone On!

Hi Ken. The campers were overnight carp anglers. Really dedicated to their hobby.  I'd chatted with a couple of them the previous day during my pre-flight reconnaissance walk (dodging the rain)If you get the angle just right, you can see the carp  just below the surface:

Aloha Roger,

     Those carp do not look small.  Did the anglers ask you to use your Mavic to spot carp for them?  Over here, one of the most popular uses for drones is for fishing.

Aloha and Drone On!

Thanks Woe. I could have wished for more time in the area, but the weather was really unkind on two of the three days we had there.

I've been asked on a couple of occasions to act as a "spotter" (usually on lakes rather than rivers).
It's bordering on cheating, I feel. You've got to give the fish a sporting chance
The ones in the picture are approaching 40 lb  - they're in a private lake belonging to an acquaintance of mine a few Kms away.
Glad you liked the clip - I even found you a weir!  It's the overspill from the navigable Town Locks back into the river Trent. There area few resident swans which grace the waters, but they wouldn't come out to play at the appropriate time.

The good thing is you did get to fly. We all wish for more time to fly

There's a bit more footage "in the can" from other parts of the UK.
Still to be edited.  I could have wished for more time...........

That’s what I often say.

Plans are made, but then life happens. ;-)


Hey, take it at your leisure... enjoy it.

Aloha Roger,

     They looked big but that is BIG!  I would think spotting on a lake would be a good idea but as you say borderline cheating.  A river may not have as consistent conditions and environment.  Here, with the ocean, there is a consistent environment and fairly consistent conditions.  

     Have you seen the little remote control "Chum Boats" for running chum out to the fish and then you throw them your line?  The have similar rigs for drones.

     BTW,  mahalo for the weir shot!  It kind of sprang out at me.  I wonder where the swans were hanging out?

Aloha and Drone on!

Yes I've seen the little remote controlled motorboats for bait spreading.
As to the swans, I didn't notice where they nest.
The previous days they were gliding about under the pedestrian walkway which can be seen
at 1min 06 parallel to the weir. So they're probably in the reeds near the weir.
