And yet another flight around the High School construction site.
And, go figure, now no snow!
I guess all those trees will be green quite soon?
They'll be green in a few days and next week they all turn colors. Probably snow again next month!
Perfect day to fly!!
(And no snow!)
Flying around Frost Elementary and the Parris Glendenning Recreation Complex in Frostburg, Maryland!
A bit windy (note the nation's flag in front of the school right before landing) but otherwise a beautiful day to fly!
It looks a bit like a military training camp.
Many of these old buildings have been repurposed. It's very possible it was!
Nice one Jonathan!
Another great day to fly!
Very limited in flight space as the 400 foot (121 meters) ceiling does not allow to go over the mountain... -And the busy street, that no responsible operator would ever fly across.
Have you ever taken your drone and climbed up one of your mountains to fly from the top?
I have several videos where I have launched from Mountain Tops, here are a few:
Thanks. Are there no mountains in York?
Ha, no, there are no mountains around here. There are some mountains a couple hours away in the Lake District, and Wales, and also a few more hours away in Scotland. The UK doesn't really have mountains on the same epic scale as America though.
Any time I travel to a place with no mountains I get homesick. To me it just seems strange to not have mountains!
Can you at least SEE the mountains from where you are?
Just realized, I have many "Launch-From-A-Mountaintop" Drone videos!
The 'problem' of living in a mountainous region!
I can't see any mountains from here, it's flat! Best we can do it rolling hills in the distance.
I have seen several Drone Videos from the U.K. and most of them are of flat, open plains.
Although it would be nice to be able to fly without worrying about running into a mountain!
Well, it's quite flat around here and some other parts of England. Most of England is rolling hills though, and there are some quite dramatic rocky areas and low mountains. The geology of the UK is very old, well all geology is I guess? But the UK has moved a long way through Continental drift from where its mountains were originally formed. It was actually on the coast of Africa a very long time ago, before it sort of floated around and up to where it is now. So the mountains that are still left are very old, there are even some old volcanoes like the one in Edinburgh, Scotland, that died out over 300 million years ago and is hardly recognizable now as a volcano unless you really look. Mountains wear down and become smaller as they get older, millions and millions of years obviously, and eventually even turn into hills. The largest mountains on Earth are also the youngest mountains on Earth, always where there is or has been more tectonic activity, where plates bash together and thrust the land upwards to create mountains. So in the USA you have the North American Plate and other geological faults that created the Rocky Mountains and various other impressive mountain ranges. The most impressive on Earth of course are where the Indian Plate and Eurasian Plate continuously smash together to create the ever growing Himalayan mountain range where we find Mount Everest.
I honestly don't know why I felt the need to write all that.
