VIDEO: Bird's eye view of Bournemouth seafront - stunning footage captured by drone

First published in News
Last updated

WITH clear blue skies, golden beach and sparkling sea, this stunning aerial footage captures Bournemouth's charms at its best.

The 35 second clip was filmed using a drone and shows the seafront in all its glory with the balloon, Pier Approach, BIC, Pavilion and Hermitage Hotel also being showcased.

Poole-based web design firm DSM Design are behind the video, which was filmed between May 3 and 5.

Drones are becoming increasingly popular and the CAA requires that anyone wishing to use one within a congested area or in proximity to people or property obtains permission

If you've got video you've shot of a stunning scene or view from across Dorset and the New Forest, then we'd love to see it.

Email digital@bournemouthecho.co.uk with the video with your name, a description of what it is and how you shot the footage.

Alternatively, you can send it to us via the Send Your News form

I have seen a few of thee flying in parks apparently they can be flown some distance from the operator, you do not need a licence I wonder how long it will take less desirable people to obtain them!

You most certainly do need a Permission to Fly issued by the Civil Aviation Authority according to Article 166/7 of the Air Navigation Order 2009.
These videos breach Section 2 of Article 167 on 4 counts! Briefly this states that you should not fly in congested areas (including over roads), over people, within 50 metres of any structure not under your control or person(s) ;especially if you are doing this for money. Hobby flyers are NOT exempt from air aviation law. There are severe penalties and the CAA are currently investigating breaches such as this.

To clarify previous post.. Permission to Fly is obligatory for Commercial Operators or people being paid for their aerial films

No it isn't. A Quadcopter is so called as it has 4 motors that enable it to take off and fly gyroscopically.

Pick up a quadcopter (subset of drone) with this capability for about £400. You don't have to spend thousands to get stunning video.

Ok, and how does your description prevent a quadcopter from being a type of drone?

You can't get the news papers or TV for free old boy. This is how news papers make money and commercial TV channels earn money. Each time you buy something in any shop some of that money will go in add revenue to the echo or ITV chan4/5 or sky. Each adult pays around £350 per year. This is why £145.50 licence fee a year is astonishingly good value for a house hold, 4 people get all that good programming and the BBC don't even get all that £145.50. Put in context if you bought the daily mail every day it would cost you up wards of £164 a year AND they get advertising revenue on top too.

What it highlights to me is how unattractive the overpass is cutting across pier approach? With the councils determined onslaught on the motorist by increasing parking charges, selling off carparks etc they might as well pull it down.
