Thanks guys. All the best for Christmas to you and yours. It's as good as Esperance down there I reckon. Next episode we head out to House beach and Pt Ann too, although we never made Reef beach. The wind sure gave me some drama's with the drone, but I got enough footage to live with.

On another note, I saw a mavic mini in action a couple of weeks back. Boy, that thing is so light. The owner flew it out a couple of hundred meters away and couldn't get it back against the wind. He got there eventually, after having to drop to 10m in height, but it showed me, light isn't always good. I don't think the mini is a good option for WA conditions after seeing that.

Great footage!
Stream beach is one of my favourite beaches of all time, and yep the sand can be soft! What was the track out like?

On the whole, pretty good. One section near the top wallowed out quite a bit: coming up in part II. A magnificent spot indeed.

Cheers.

Strap also looks to be very thick so is it an 11,000 kg strap rather than a 8,000 kg strap?

Really enjoying the drone footage

OJ.
You are correct OJ, I checked last weekend, its an 11,000Kg strap. My others are 8,000Kg.


Anyways, the trip continues with some wildlife interactions:

Great footage Shane, braver than me with the legless wildlife . Good to see the sun come out and allow you to show the colours, we're just lucky we are blessed with such beautiful places.
House beach to Pt Ann, or is it Anne, on the beach - now we can try it with confidence next time we are down that way. It is great on those beaches, especially with the low traffic levels.
How soon for Part 3 ?
Cheers
Peter

I love legless wildlife......


part 3 will go live on the 21st.

The final - part 4 goes live Feb 2.

Yep, that beach was pretty easy to drive to be honest. I couldn't get TC to lock in 4H and tranny temps went ballistic. I changed to 4L, got the converter to lock and all was good. Speeds up to 60Km/h max but averaging 40Km/h.

As of yesterday, my future trips will be in a D-Max. It's a bit of a bunky but should do the job. I just don't have the room in the Paj for my trips away. I will be keeping the Paj for camper towing duties though.
