  2. Photogrammetry in Action - Coniston Mine Works

    Date 06 Mar 2019
    Coniston Mine Works What3Words location: ///probing.binds.unspoiled I recently took a trip to the Lake District and visited Coniston. I’d heard much about the ‘Old Man of Coniston’, the slate mines and slag heaps that are strewn all over so decided to hike as far up as possible (in the constantly changing…

  3. Photogrammetry in Action - World War 2 Pillbox

    Date 17 Feb 2019
    I’ve spent a lot of time living and flying around the Suffolk area. Taking country strolls leads to some really excellent finds. Most notably was the Pillboxes in Sudbury, which seemed to line the River Stour. Having read into this (nerd out here), the Home Guard built many of these…

  4. A trip to Beachy Head

    Date 03 Dec 2018
    This summer I went on a trip to the south coast, as I’ve never actually been there before - i’m a northerner. Eastbourne is a fairly busy coastal town on the south coast of the UK in East Sussex. It’s largely retirement land and not to much to get on…

  6. 100 Years on - Remembrance Day

    Date 11 Nov 2018
    I was invited by the Deacon at St. Andrews to Church to drone a recent addition to the north side of the tower - thousands of hand-knitted and crocheted poppies. What a prime example of how we remember the fallen, 100 years on. Lest we forget.

  7. #dronesforgood - The Plastic Tide

    Date 06 Aug 2018
    I woke up yesterday to another event of a drone being used, with evil intentions in mind. Regardless of what you might think about the country of Venezuela and its ruling authority, the news of the use of drones (It looks now like it was a weaponised hexacopter) to take someones…

    Date 24 Jul 2018
    This is has been on social media channels for a while now… there is an update to the Air Navigation Order (ANO) that comes into force on the 30th of July. The CAA document is available to view online and isn’t particularly taxing. It can be summed up nicely in the images (taken…

  10. How I got a drone ‘licence’ in the UK (PfCO)

    Date 27 Jun 2018
    To fly a drone and make some money, you need a licence right? Well, it’s not quite a licence as such a thing doesn’t (yet?) exist in the UK. What you get is actually a certification of approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Known as ‘permission to fly for commercial…
