While away down under our drillman put the "industrial crop" in the field they trampled all the wheat down just before harvest to survey for the proposed solar park. While he was there a geezer driving a taxi asked if he could practice filming him with his drone. Being like dust the poppy seed is virtually broadcast on and then just rolled with the drill press wheels so the challenger is making easy work of this, - will of had her for 18 years now come next month! tracks and the big drive wheels are stuffed so she might be next on the replacement.

Well produced video. Decent control of his drone.

Its not bad, but in one shot he gets ahead of the challenger nearly loosing it out of the screen!!


I've watched it once when it was followed by another of his showing what not to do on a windy day with your new toy- he was near-ish the M25 and wanted to see how the video would look from higher than his previous drone but in his hurry he omitted to realise how windy it was further up and so began a few hairy minutes as the drone got carried away from him, being new he wasn't confident of taking the controls so press the return to home button but at first it struggled with the wind until it had begun to descend a bit as part of the RTH mode, by then he had walked out of the fields across a road and into an housing estate next to the motorway, by now the part charged batteries were getting low which sets off a decent mode just as he spots it over the rooftops, still wary of manual control it ends up bumping a few roof tiles and falls to the floor onto it side, wrecking two of the £20 rotor guards and a rotor. He was just glad to get it back having feared he'd lost his £1000+ toy :o

He's always drilled every thing straight like that provided he can see the other end of the field its nearly spot on. We like the drill with our chalk to clay soils but there has been some thought at maybe going for a tine cultivator drill like the Kockerling thing. In an ideal world we'd keep the vaddy if its value gets low and have the kockerling as well, we don't think the tine job would work every year :?
