The need to disconnect from the world continues to grow, slowly becoming fed up with all the noise coming from all angles of life, always demanding but never giving.
Days like these on a remote beach help to forget about all the demands and provides an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones, and to sit and watch the waves knowing no one can reach you because there is no phone reception.
Photos and videos from drones have always captured my attention, and after much research of what was the best drone to purchase I decided on the DJI Mavic Mini 2 with the Fly More Combo. DJI list the drone as a beginners or entry level drone and the likelihood of crashing is high, it seemed to be the most appropriate drone to purchase.
After test flying it around the local park I decided to be a little more adventurous and head to the beach. The laws around flying drones here in Australia are fairly clear, no more than 400ft in Altitude, must have line of sight and be at least 30 meters away from people.
Fully aware friends and family here in Australia and across the globe are yet again in lock down. With that in mind I headed to the local beach with the drone, to capture some footage of waves rolling in to the shoreline to share with everyone so they had a distraction, even for just a few minutes and apart from the visual distraction there is a back story.
Drone laws here in Australia are pretty clear and to name a few you are not allowed to fly a drone within 30 meters of other people, no higher than 400ft (120 meters) etc but to reach a suitable spot to fly the drone I needed to walk through the clothing optional area of the beach, that’s right, the nudist beach. This might sound like a good idea but let me assure its filled full of men, and only men who are all naked resulting in me looking at my feet the entire length of the beach.
