Some seriously big boats!!!

I was in Palma the other day - wow! Some impressive boats...

I couldn't resist flying the drone around to have a closer look!

Re: Some seriously big boats!!!

How are you doing landing the drone on a moving boat? Were you familiar with RC equipment before you took up the drone?

I have only landed on a moving powerboat. Still a bit scared to do it with a mast and stays in the way!

I didn't have much experience with RC equipment, but like to think I have good hand eye co-ordination... The modern drones really are very easy to fly!

I am a professional sailor (yacht deliveries and instruction). The filming is just a hobby... The fact that you asked though is very flattering!

Camped on an abandoned sail boat at the Club Nautica in '66 when the town wasn't much more than a village with an old castle.Think I like the old version better. Good filming ,though
