they were only undertaken after co-ordination with Air Traffic Control at Ronaldsway.

New aircraft on test - the DJI Spark!
 
Beckwith's Mine  -  DJI Spark  26/8/17
Practical flying endurance of the Spark seems limited to around 10 minutes per battery so after my test flights I switched over to the larger and more powerful Phantom 4, which can achieve up to around 25 minites of practical flying per battery.
