It's a couple of years since I posted this video, and linked it to the forum.
Since then, it's had an astonishing 20,000+ views.
I can only think someone has linked it to the official website for the Chateau.
But I can't find it on the web.

Nice Roger.
We can usually only guess what made a video popular.
And more often than not it is just the algorithm doing its job.

Nice place - and congrats. Should have monetized it ;-) Like how you make multi direction moves.

Hi Depp. Well that was a preplanned Waypoints mission programmed on the PC using Litchi. Much smoother that way than when I fly the drone

Maybe - I've got a dozen our more that have over a thousand views and one over 4000. But this one is way beyond what I could reasonably have expected. Not that I'm complaining

Random things seem to catch the public's interest - maybe we were just lucky
What was your one?

Well I can see why that one might have gone viral, when you think about all the avid trainspotters that are out there.  They're as fanatical as Twitchers ( Bird watchers )

I would have believed that if my other 100+ would also have gone viral too.

Well, you can only monetize if you meet certain criteria's.
And they are quite hard to meet if you don't have a 'popular' channel.
You need at least 1000 subs (that is not the hardest to reach).
But it is more difficult to get over 4000h watch time in the last 365 days.
I was lucky that I had this one video, otherwise it would have been close to impossible.

If you average around 20K views per video, it is starting to get interesting.
Below that, it won't give much.

We have a bit of peace and quiet this morning - the plasterer won't be here until after lunch.  It's sunny and freezing so I guess I'll take a walk with the P2

You should not. It is very unsatisfying and frustrating to chase those.

Congratulations for the nice number of views :-) I'll have to say I wouldn't be surprised if you really found out this video ended up on the official site - the end result certainly feels polished :-)
