Anyone going out around LL this weekend?

Postby bunyip » 14 Nov 2017, 19:07

Off topic but I have just bought a new drone and want to do some coastal shots and would like to include some fishing yaks if I can, I can go out from Thursday onwards, unfortunately can't use my yak as a result of three accidents over the past six months which has rendered me out of commission for a while, buggered back from a fall and buggered knee from a silly accident three weeks ago, the third was the loss of three teeth from a falling tree branch that should never have happened.
If no one objects I am happy to provide a DVD if they would like it when I finish.
Can also putn up a link when done.
Not for profit just my own interest and to send to relatives overseas instead of Xmas cards.

Hi Iain, I'm considering a launch from JJ on Thursday, heading over to Palmers Channel for a high tide gummy hunt. Could confirm tomorrow evening if that's any help.

It's not catching but it gets me some sympathy at home.
I wanted to get some footage of Warneet going over the yachts but CASA rules won't let me do this as it is too close to Tooradin airport.
What time Thursday, I have a service on my tractor that day but they should be finished by 11.00 and JJ is only about 15 minutes away, as the drone is new and so am I, I have some reservations about flying too far over water as it is a bit too expensive to sink.

Mavic Pro Fly More package, I wanted 4K and this delivers very nicely, a lot more compact than the Phantom but delivers the same result.
?Downside is that 4K chews up a lot of memory but I am going to put in a bluray burner so I can create 25gb or 50gb dual layer discs as opposed to 4.7gb DVD.
A recent 5 minute 4K used 2.6gb of memory :o but clarity is brilliant, any sharper it would cut you.
The Mavic folds up small enough to fit in a jacket pocket.
Haggled at JB and got it for $1940.00.

Not guilty, shot some footage at powlett river then dropped into JJ, saw a black wagon with trailer and a yellow yak a long way out, had an MRI appointment so didn't stop and could see the thunder approaching.
There was a yak trailer at powlett but didn't see a yak unless it was way upstream past the bridge.
