Ireland Surfing and Scenic
Great aerial video shot by a TBS Discovery Pro quadcopter of the stunning beauty of the Irish landscape around Sligo and Mullaghmore, which is one of Europe’s premiere big wave surfing spots on the NW coast of Ireland . Beyond beautiful landscape, video catches the great surfing conditions as well as some of the action from the Conference Surfing Medicine that was taking place. A good shot of jetski rescue training with the ‘Irish Tow Surf Rescue’.
Quad setup per the video publisher: TBS Discovery Pro / TBS Groundstation / GoPro 3+

About the TBS Groundstation from the Team Black Sheep manual:
A compact, light-weight and all-in-one versatile “take anywhere” device. The small size and integrated display makes this the perfect tool for holding safe flights together with a spotter. It also lets spectators get a chance to watch what’s going on. All while the pilot is using securely locked goggle cables. Dual-video outputs and a VTx port allow for extra goggles and external recorders, receivers and more. The integrated video receiver is compatible with most 2.4GHz transmitters.
