Hi Matt thanks for getting back to me it's great to hear from you. I've just bought a brand-new phantom 4 and haven't flown it yet I'm just getting everything together.Ive just bought an iPad 4 mini tablet to view my phantom so really I'm a total newbee to phantoms. I' have other ,drones I've been flying a nice Hubson drone which I really like but it hasn't got the photography capabilities of the Phantom. Where do you live Matt I live in Stapenhill Burton on and upon Trent. ?

Hello Matt,
I'm from Derby town area and have wondered about flying over the power station in Willington.
i have heard to avoid Power Stations due to electronic interference but i guess because it is disused you have had no problems?

Hi Alex. Flown there twice now. Obviously I don't fly over the sub stations just keep to the towers and the field next to the Tower. In respect to interference, I have had no issues at all. Full signal on both controller and camera. Where do you normally fly? Cheers matt

Thanks for your reply i may have to fly there tomorrow.
i usually go to a local farming field or park but have travelled to Dovedale just past Ashbourne, trekked to the top of Thorpe cloud to fly from there. Mam Tor in Castleton is another good place to go. i do a lot of landscape photography with my phantom 4. just looking for new ideas because i soon get board of the same old places! guess you got a Subaru from your name then? you a fellow petrol head aswel as a Droner?

Hi Matt

No it's not my first drone I have been flying now for the past six months, I have a Hubson X4FPV absolute brilliant drone would recommend it to anybody but I'm a photography freak and I love my images,so bought the phantom 4 but haven't flown it ye. I wanted to get out this weekend but have a load of stuff on.We are pretty restricted over here in Burton as we are right next to the Trent and there aren't very many spaces to fly. I like the sound of a flight from the powerstation.I,m available Sat/ Sun 22nd/23rd oct,here is my email address if you would like to meet up and we can arrange something off-line......pixelshaper@live.com. Cheers

Hi Alex

I have been a photographer for many years but now getting into aerial photography, could you tell me the best settings to get some smooth video on the P4 and would you recommend using filters? I was looking at buying some ND filter everybody keeps telling me that the polar pro are very good what would you recommend?

Cheers Steve

Steve I do have a circular polariser filter by polar pro for when I shoot above water. Makes the water less reflective from light and makes clouds appear in the sky better.it is rarely bright enough in the UK for ND filters maby nd4 or nd8 would be good on a sunny day I have not tried.
