    Yes I’m sure rain is needed but enough now :)

    It was Jim but I can’t recall the height at the time.

    Can it be calculated scientifically I wonder, using the photo, Google maps, and the parameters of your camera lens?
    That would be something to take your mind off the weather.

    It's the cold that's bugging me, but yes after last year the reservoirs can probably do with the water.

    Was that on approach to Liverpool or Manchester, just seemed quite low for a commercial passenger flight so I was wondering if you were in a Helicopter or a light aircraft or if it was a drone shot?

    Or I could check the log data.

    Yea cold for the time of year isn’t it.

    It was a drone shot, I’m guessing it was no more than 130ft, The JSON would provide all the flight parameters but not the exact height at the time of the photo as the photo count isn’t part of that data, or at least I don’t recollect seeing that info.

    Ah interesting so these devices have a JSON interface, that reminds me I still haven't done that WebApi thing for you, so does it store it locally on the drone or can you read the data wirelessly?

    I think the data is stored both locally (on the drone) and in the cloud if you enable that. You can request flight data from the cloud too.

    You can utilise that flight data into visual telemetry on the actual video (post production). Height, speed, tilt, yaw, battery percentage etc. I tried it once but once you’ve done it, you’ve experimented and you try other things.

    There’s an SDK available, I’ve not looked at that but you can do things like stream the live video (maybe to multiple devices for example - you already see the live video on your phone as your flying of course).

    It's 7:30 pm here in Davao. Sat on the porch enjoying my second G&T, expecting wifey to call me in for dinner soon. Tomorrow no doubt will be at 32C again.

    Just started light drizzle here in Ubud.
    High tropical humidity and temperature of 27C according to Google.
    That's 80.6F for my Mum, or 300.15K for the physicists among us.
