Before any flight of any drone, the pilot must research their location. Do not go into these things blind, without a doubt something could go wrong. I do understand the whole "just do it - get the shot" but you also need to understand that there are rules in place, break one and you ruin it for all of us!

The CASA App did specify that I could not go over 30M high, and that's exactly what I did - now I have to say the 2-10mins I was up I was a nervous mess! mainly for the reason of doing this for the first time, in SYDNEY 

I do have to say, flying for that short time got me thinking - I really need to invest in a much smaller/lighter/less attention-seeking drone. Might go ahead and bring the Mavic Air alongside me in the near future.

The Phantom 4 Pro, amazing imagery/video content sadly just a large oversized drone that really needs a re-design.

Attempting my first Sydney flight, I did arrive at Bronte around 6AM, i wanted to make sure I arrive before peak time...I dont think there is Peak time, I feel SYDNEY is 110% always busy! which was why my nerves skyrocketed. 

I did enjoy my first flight, would never dare to go to any other beach just yet - I feel alot of these coastal locations down the Sydney Metro areas (Manly, Cronulla, Bronte etc) will be adjusted and may introduce no drone signs. 


Whos bright idea was it to wake up at 4am? ours of course!

Morning sunrise session down at Bells Beach, zero traffic in sight and zero coffee in our hands. Not sure why we forgot coffees but it happened and Ill never make that mistake again!

A rather chilly morning during what has been a tough warm month in November, within an hour of standing above the beach by the viewpoint a cold front had arrived - a small storm had hit, causing rain and my drone to crash land...typical

Ever since I had a quick flight up on the Sunshine Coast earlier this year, I have been seeking a surf spot along the Victorian coast with the same shade of blue. 

With the sun hiding behind the dark clouds, all potential of tones and shadows had vanished within seconds. Planning your trips and ideas can instantly become a crush/fail when mother nature decides its not her day!

I must say the P4P handles wind pretty good, till next time Bells Beach
