kunanyi – Mt Wellington in the snow!

After checking the road to the top was open and great wind conditions, I braved the cold and headed up Hobart’s mountain backdrop to play with my F550 in the snow! I walked about 30 minutes south of the carpark and giant radio/tv tower to the boulder fields. The sky’s were clear on takeoff, but 12 minutes later the cloud came in and I hastily landed to retrace my steps in the mist with reduced visibility on a poorly marked track.
Here are some stills from the flight video using Xiaomi Yi – well worth the effort šŸ™‚
