Twitter users cheesed off after pizza festival fiasco

The Black Pearl Pirate Ship in New Brighton – Drone Video

Posted on May 15, 2018

While practicing for my PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operation), which is something required to use a drone for commercial work in the UK, I have been flying and filming around the local area. One area I took my DJI Phantom 4 to recently was New Brighton, where there is a recreation of the Black Pearl Pirate Ship, from Pirates of the Caribbean, constructed from driftwood on the beach.

I spent around an hour flying the quadcopter around the pirate ship, which also afforded exquisite views of the Liverpool skyline. After shooting I edited together the following video, which has already achieved over 20,000 views on Facebook.

I’ll be uploading more videos like this over the coming weeks and months and, if you’d like something similar to promote your business or event, please drop us an email. We’d love to hear from you.
