Margate Main Sands by Drone

I was filming the main sands at Margate at sunset last night. Didn't quite catch the 'Turner Effect' but the results were generally quite pleasing as a means of illustrating the ambience of the resort.

The platform was a Phantom 3 Professional with a 4k camera and an ND filter. I'm still learning and have a long way to go in mastering the complexities of this advanced aerial platform.

Pleased to see Thanet Life back on the news stands.

I would like to ask a few questions about flying the drone for this video clip.

Is the camera in a fixed position and drone is moving the camera view?
Are you flying the drone in the way you would fly a model aircraft, or are you flying it on a video feed from the camera?
Is the video clip saved to a memory card, or transmitted directly to a ground station?

Thanks for the clip, brings back memories.
