Another test flight with Droney McDroneface - this time at Corfe Castle. Low light this morning so a touch of grain on the picture and the dolly zoom effect does drop the quality a touch, but for a quick piece shot and cut today, not too shabby.  Only my second flight so just getting to grips with things - so at present i'm not going too much into the various modes etc, just taking it out to get a feel of it.


Important to note, I took off and landed from the nearby East Hill - not National Trust property - and filmed around 7.30am this morning (Saturday) so all was quiet. I was intending to film further along the Dorset coast at Durlston, but the rangers have now instructed all drone flyers that they must be CAA approved (which is a very good idea) and insured etc. If you fly out from the cliffs as well, you'll need to speak to the MOD - very interesting considering that doesn't come up on the various drone apps and sites. So once I've passed my exam and am certified, I look forward to going back. Too many incidents with smaller, cheaper drones are buttoning up the areas we can freely fly - sad, but necessary and at least we'll all be in good company.

Nice footage, brings back memories as I done shoot there a good few years ago and boy the national trust make you jump through hoops, cost a few quid and I didn't even know about drones in those days.

Many thanks Nebuchadnezzar! Only my second flight so kept it simple, but it's often in the editing that these things come alive.

Yes, they do indeed - but on the ground filming wise they're fine as long as you have insurance etc. Depends who you deal with really. Drone wise, I took off from the east hill and kept my distance, Wouldn't film overhead during a crowded day etc.

Can't remember what year it was but around 2008/9. I had to apply for permission and a stills licence to shoot on site, the bureaucracy was mind blowing, but got through it over the space of 5 months of email ping pong.  Like you said, they are quite helpful when you cross all the T's and dot the I's and produce all the relevant insurances. I wouldn't do it again, that is for sure, I hung up those spurs lol.

A year later I did another shoot at Corfe but used a farmers field and just used Corfe as a backdrop.  Right behind the castle and negated the mindless paperwork lol  I would love to go back and "Inspire Corfe" maybe next year when we visit our daughter and grandson.
