Another opportunity to go flying with a steam train. It’s a narrow corridor with trees. Not polished, but better than my attempt last year with my Spark. Helps having a longer lasting battery. Still need to develop the smooth moves with the gymbal.

Thank you. Is a railway run by volunteers on weekends and during the holidays. Is the Mid Norfolk Railway, and this is Wymondham Halt. Wymondham is a historical market town with a ‘regular’ railway too.

Nice shot. It's a small cloud generator, Cloudtrain! The steam coming off the train looks like clouds in the sky for a moment.

Thank you, i missed the first opportunity as the cable on the Air RC hadn't fully connected to my iPhone...green light but not connected...hey ho, once connected, it is faster than the Spark to set up and get flying.

Awesome video of a fantastic subject. I love old trains, the Tennessee Valley Rail Museum is close to here. My wife and I go ride the trains several times a year.

Unfortunately, TVRM is next door to the Chattanooga airport. I have tons of photos of the old trains but can't fly there.

Perfect! We've just discussed steam trains in Spark part of the Forum. Guy from Australia post his footage with this beast. They are stunning indeed.

Thank you, there’s a few on the Mavic Forum too that like the trains. Nice objects to practise filming with.

Great Yarmouth! That's a first, it's an interesting town, the local politician is a not a nice person, and a lot of the locals voted UKIP last time, so I tend to fly around the broads but steer clear of it...What part did you want to see filmed?
You might have started a "thing" here where people request fly-by's of points of interest in other countries and cities

Haha.

So what do you mean, you can't launch the aircraft at all?
I would like to see the beach as the time when I was visiting Norfolk I was without a drone

Oh I'm sure I can launch a drone from Great Yarmouth Beach, I'll see when I'm next in that area, and try and get some footage for you!

Nice video.
But you should use expo on the gimbals so get smoother controls when rotating or going up/down.

There are advanced setting for the gimbal that allows it make smoother movements when your controlling it. Here is a quick tutorial I found but there are a lot of them out there.
