Learning to fly Multirotors.

This was one of my early experiments flying a multirotor. As you can see I hadn’t even setup the camera gymbal correctly yet so the horizon is a bit squint.

This is a picture (click on it to enlarge) from just above the Burray end of the fourth Churchill Barrier looking south, towards South Ronaldsay. The barrier itself is the road on the right. Over more than sixty years, sand has built up along the east side of the barrier. However don’t think that this now makes Burray and South Ronaldsay part of the same island, residents of both islands will tell you otherwise.
