Pilot in the North East (Durham)

Hi... I am a falconer based in Durham UK looking for an RC pilot to help with a video project... I am producing I hope a series of short videos on birds of prey in flight, hunting etc, starting with my Peregrine Falcon... Will be using 808 hd mini camera';s with all manner of lure methods... Could do with somebody skilled in piloting RC planes etc. especially Multi rotor kit, and have their own planes etc... I have Parkinson';s disease and struggle to operate RC equipment... This is suited to someone who has an interest in birds of prey and has some spare time to fill... Its not a paid job but any additional bits of kit required I will buy... Looking to get started as soon as possible got the trained birds, just need the pilot. Please checkout the folowing link for some footage I recently got from a hood cam on my Peregrine... if interested please first reply to this post...

Many thanks
Kevin

That video is incredibly cool and the ';performance'; of your bird puts my rc aircraft to shame :whistling:

Personally i';m based in Lancaster which is a bit of a distance away and i';m still working to get my quadcopters shooting decent quality aerial video - but i fully intend to get that side of things working better into the new year, once i do i';d love to be involved if possible.

I wonder if there';s anyone located a bit closer to you who';s already got the equipment setup and working? You';ve posted in the middle of the xmas holidays, the forums are a little bit quiet at the moment, so hang on - hopefully you';ll get more response as people start reappearing, but if no one else can help there is a chance i';ll be able to do something with you at some point.

The idea is so good that it would be a shame if no one can help. I don';t know if this is a first but i';ve not seen it done before ~~

I wish I lived closer to you, as I';d love to get some footage of these amazing birds in action. Unfortunately I live on the Isle of Wight.

Amazing video there.

Fascinating video - just trying to work out what happened at the end. It appears that the Falcon caught another bird in flight but which bird flew away? Surely it wasn';t the bird the Falcon caught - it looked pretty dead to me.

Looks like the smaller bird was caught, played dead, then a sheep came along and distracted the falcon and the smaller one took it';s chance to fly away.

I could be wrong though.

Thanks for your comments guys, at the end of the video it';s the Kestrel that gets away, the Peregrine makes a small chase then gives up... Thanks for your offers of help really apreciate your interest, idealy a Durham based enthusiast would be good, but in the event nobody found local, then I will look further afield ... Regards kevin
