Just a quick clip from the weekend showing a cave I managed to find after a bit of research. It's a manmade neolithic cave which used as an axe head factory about 4000 years ago. Please don't expect the best quality as it was purely a recce for further exploration.  It was also quite interesting to fly due to the GPS dropping out every time I got too close to the sides.

Aloha nigel,

     That is full on outrageous!  You must hold the record for negative altitude!  Unreal site.  Great job!

Aloha and Drone On!

Thanks, it's cool isn't it.

I broke my own record last week on the first sighting run, down a bit further than this @ -129m.  The altitude limit appears to only work with positive readings.  Not particularly important, but good to know.

Cool.. How did you find this cave?

Do you plan to enter and explore it?   Hope you can find some nice gold bars!

Haha...I never thought of it like that.  Now I want to fly down one of those big reservoir overflows to see if they go into the Abyss.

It's quite a well documented cave & not very deep, I think it's about 7ft from front to back.  Due to it's difficult to get to location it doesn't get many visitors so there aren't many photos around or directions to get to it.  My next visit will be on foot from the bottom up, now I know exactly where it is, & hopefully back down again!
Gold bars would be nice!, but I'll be happy to see a 4000 year old axe head.
