Leaving Pangbourne Meadows

We left Pangbourne Meadows this morning in bright sunshine and with blue skies.

I decided to try the “track me” mode with my drone.  However, due to the amount of steel in the build of Steel Away, the magnetic forces appeared to be too great for the drone’s GPS system so I had to fly it manually and, the heart stopping moment was when the drone refused to land back on board and I had to catch it in my hand.  More practice needed!   Thankfully Angie was at the helm.

However, I managed to produce this short video which I hope you enjoy!

 

Fly Over Stoke Bruerne when drained

We drove past Stoke Bruerne yesterday and (as usual) stopped for a walk and a beer at the Navigation Inn.   The lock was under repair and the pound was drained so I could not resist a short fly over as the opprtunity to see this this does not occur very often.
