    Talking Harperbury - BUT a Bit Different!!! April 2012


    Ok, had a quick run back to Harperbury this evening and had a very different experience than usual explores I've done.

    Usually it's all done in the shadows and trying to not get seen, but we were stood in the middle of the football field taking photos in broad daylight and security HAD seen us but didnt seem bothered, we even spoke to one of the two guys and he seemed so completely un-interested in us... and a little bit stoned

    Still didnt find the padded room though!

    But the different part, I'm into Radio Controlled flying, so I thought it would be good to video Harperbury from the air. Again Security must have seen this (or they're blind) but didnt seem bothered.

    Link to the video at the end of this post...















    And the video here....

    Hope you enjoy. It's a bit different from the usual DP report but still Urbex, sort of

    Loving the plane video! Is it just a action cam strapped to a petrol plane or a full camera plane?

    Never seen anything like it before but have the sudden urge to spend some money on one!

    Thanks

    It's a £150 electric plane, so very quiet and doesnt break many of the laws that the nitro ones do. The camera is a FlyCamOne, and fairly cheap
