Fantastic video mate thanks for sharing. It's always nice to know about a fellow pilots background and check out his stable.
Great collection of everything and really neat.

Thank you my sir! Glad you liked it! I don't usually do much with a lot of commentary but I thought.. ah what the heck!

Just charging my last couple of packs as I was tired last night and didn't get them all done. Hopefully be flying in an hour or so but weather is coming in again. Hopefully I can get a few in at least. We had a massive storm last night and forecast to be bad again later this afternoon.
My park next door suffered badly. (can't fly there though) I have to drive or walk about a half mile to get where I can fly legally. IMG20190208184813.jpg

I was in a Chinese restaurant picking up some take away when this freak storm hit and within 2 minutes of rain and massive hail starting there were waves coming down the hill.
The restraunt was packed and I was the only Australian in there. I was trying to hold the front door shut from the wind and waves of water and I was knee deep in a flooded restraunt when a door next to me flew open and I could smell smoke. It was their power box with cables going into floor slab.
I honestly thought I was dead.
After being in there for an hour I almost swam out of there with free dinner for helping. Lol

Not many of us on here do so it's a really nice change. You do commercial photography too?
I have just 1 contract with a construction company. I film their development site once a month; provide stills and 360 videos to record the progress. Just a side thing I do but love it.

Awesome, I work in construction but since getting into this hobby I have never worked on one ever I was allowed to fly.
I work on heaps if sites with tower cranes and it drives me insane at times not being able to dive the tower.

LOL. I'm in Canada so I had to apply for an SFOC (Special Flight Operators Certificate) from Transport Canada. This gives me permission to fly in that zone and do the videos/photos. I use the Phantom for that job. BUT i did take my freestyle there once.. the security wanted to see it fly. I gave him my spare goggles to where and he loved it LOL

Great looking kit you have Ebeez! Are you flying this weekend?
Hey FutruraMille! Thank you! Yes I just in from ripping 3 packs. Took 20 minutes to feel my thumbs again! I took my Reverb and Stingy out to try the Ethix props and also test the RunCam Eagle Pro2. It's a heck of a lot colder than i thought it was.. with the wind blowing. Are you going to get a chance to fly?
