Looks great footage what height did you fly at ?
Highest point was 380 feet.
In my opinion I don't think this footage is the best I've done. The lighting on the day was variable due to broken clouds: I'd set the camera for bright sunshine only for the Sun to be obscured the next second by clouds. Though I say it myself, I've done better.

But thanks for the kind words

I'm fortunate in that respect since I live right next to the Pennine range in England. Plenty of secluded places to go flying without many people to interfere with me. Though I live on the Lancashire side of the Pennines, the boarder with West Yorkshire is only about a mile away from where I live. Indeed, I can drive for just 5 minutes and be in a place that is just roling hills and dales. The place in this video is about 20 minutes by car away from where I live, but had to walk about half a kilometre away from where I parked my car. Apart from the odd rare car driving along the nearby road there was literally no-one within a couple of miles of me.

I've done a couple of flights over in Anglesey near to the South Stack lighthouse on Holyhead Island a few years ago using a dji Phantom. Near to there is the prominent remains an ancient iron age hut group and well worth a fly over and, importantly, is outside of Valley's no-fly zone. There is a nice car-park just on the opposite side of the road to the hut group remains so car parking isn't an issue. I recommend that you check it out.

I have a video on youtube of my flight over it, but since it's shot using a dji, it wouldn't be appropriate to show it here. However, check out this screenshot of the site from Google Earth: https://i.gyazo.com/e1f37541d40f39b82efdc53651371fd1.jpg

Yes that looks like a great spot to fly unhindered with the possibility of some great altitude shots with the light changing in and out with the hills as a back drop

There is another place that would be good for a 'Point Of Interest' flight just 1.29 miles to the South East of that other one I mentioned above. Two ancient standing stones in the middle of a farmer's field which is accessible to the public via a footpath. Should you go to fly those hut remains I mentioned above, save a battery and take a flight there too. see this Google earth screenshot :)

Looks ideal, I’ve just spent 3 hours repairing my downed H Pro after a school boy error let my cusion insert the battery whilst I was flying down in Devon flying above Woolicombe beach what a fabulous spot that was , long story short the usual damage , landing gear smashed to bits , landing gear servos both broken in half , camera ok thank god , 2 motor arms snapped, 3 props , and loads of embarrassment, I would be lost without the support from the more experienced pilots on this site/ forum , would never have attempted this repair, would have just sent it off for repair and just payed the Bill !!!! Gives you a sense of achievement fixing it and a better understanding of the care that is needed , and the damage from a simple mistake/ over sight , hopefully take it for a flight and see how it responds and flies , any advice would be appreciated

Can't help with the repair side of things...not wit a TH anyway. A few years ago I did manage to resurrect a very crashed P2V, but that was a far simpler aircraft than the TH. If it had been the TH I'd have been buggered.
