    Yeah, I could do with a drone... I had some film students take footage with a drone at our place last year and that is handy but I would like to get more current video.

    We got the dji mavic air, highly recommended. Amazing features and so easy to use. On an unrelated topic I see from your videos you have solar, what system is it?

    I have read the air is a very good drone yes - I nearly got one myself.

    Our solar system is 5kw - German panels with a Chinese inverter. We had it installed several years ago now (2012) and it's still going well. No way does it fully power our home and we don't have a battery either but the savings are noticeable.

    Yes I bet, we have a redback, from Brisbane I believe, only 4kw but luckily they threw in a battery for us 9kwh which makes a huge difference, great for charging the ev's esp in summer . Do you have an episode on the solar on your channel?
