It’s amazing what you can see when flying a drone. Spotting a new housing development in Littlebourne took me by a little surprise. As I made my usual reveal ascent, I suddenly caught a view of new a new housing estate being build in the middle of the village of Littlebourne in Kent.
To be honest, I shouldn’t of been that surprised. It seemed that any spare piece of land in the Canterbury area is being used to build new houses on at the moment. As soon as the land becomes available, housing developers are building houses on it straight away.
Apart from capturing some aerial video of the new builds in Littlebourne, I was also able to have a bit of fun and using the Littlebourne Cricket club wicket as an aerial photo opportunity. I took the DJI Mini 2 up to the maximum flying height of 400 feet and took a birds eyes view of the entire cricket pitch. I was really happy with the result and I immediately put it onto my Drones Deep instagram account.
The disappointing aspect about this drone flight around Littlebourne was that I did not get my usual aerial video and photos of the village church. Every time I visit a Kent village, I really look forward to grabbing some video and photos f the local church. I think I was too interested in the cricket pitch to remember looking for the Littlebourne village church!
