Lithgow on Fire.

A little video made with a Gopro on a helicopter drone about the bush fires that we are experiencing over here at the moment.

Great film!
Must be scary knowing there is nothing you can do to stop fires like that.
Hope the weather changes soon.

Re: Lithgow on Fire.

Boy, those helicopter drones with a live camera slung underneath might be a seriously useful tool for cruisers to check out various island bays, coves, anchorges and passes through reefs, etc.

From an easily accessed harbor anchorage you could launch your drone and check out other nearby anchorages, gunkholes, etc.

I wonder what the range is for one of these drones & camera is so that you can maintain control?
