Awesome footage.  Quite a contrast in colors when comparing golf greens to local foliage.

Very well maintained. Sadly I found out today that this golf course and 138 acres of ancient land around it is going to be leased by the local authorities and turned into a leisure complex! London will be nothing more than a slab of concrete before long!

Thanks mate. The course was dead! I could hear something behind the tree line and thought it was the farmer but thankfully it was just the green keeper doing his bit

Someone else mentioned that - perhaps I should give in to YT though the comments I've read on there are eye watering at times. F's, B's, C's etc Drone police, drone haters - just all round unsavoury people with empty lives. At least sky pixel is more of a niche platform and I don't have to deal with morons leaving nasty replies.

You have a point there.
Not that I ever encountered it a lot in my 14 years as a YT creator.

You can decide if you want to give users the options to give comments.
But if you set a video to 'unlisted' nobody is going to see it unless they have a link (which you probably share on this forum only)

Cool - think I'll give it a try. I won't be monetising the videos either.

Nice.

You will need 1000 subscribers to be able to do that (and x amount of viewing time per month)

Indeed - zero subs and 30 seconds of viewing. In all seriousness it would only be used to get better res in my videos for social media

That is the main objective.
Skypixel has some of the worst viewing experiences I know.
It did improve over the last year, but before that I could not even watch skypixel video's because it was so laggy and pixelated.

Must have changed that indeed.
But in the past you also got digests per section.
Panda was active with that.

Very sad to hear.  Same is happening in many locations here in the US also.  

Many years ago my grandad told me if I wanted to invest in something invest in land because they aren't going to be making anymore.  Fortunately I listened to him and picked up 100 acres of forested land.  Unfortunately, a few years back the state invoked the imminent domain law and recently cut a 4 lane highway through my land.  I got a small pittance of money but I'd much rather have the unmolested forest land.

Sounds like he was a wise and astute gent. Land is sacred around here - a one acre plot in a prime location of central London would sell for literally tens of millions!
Most of the land around here is either crown estate managed by local authority or owned by a billionaire Duke (of Westminster). The rest by farmers or big houses on small plots with freeholds. I’m lucky to own property in London but 100 acres... I can only wish.

It does - in fact it has about six car parks - its roughly 2 miles from one end to the other with cyclists dominating the roads at a 20MPH speed limit - so be sure to plan which car park is best for you. I park at the one with the cafe and toilet near the entrance - the flying field is a half a mile walk from there. Watch out for the deer poop!
