This spot isn't on the DB Map and I'd like to contribute it/add it, but I'm not sure how.

Firstly, some historical information: Fort Oxford (active 1944-1953) was a long-range counter-bombardment coastal gun battery situated 4 miles north-west of the entrance to Sydney Harbor, Cape Breton County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Originally to be built at Oxford Point, but moved to a more defensible location to the west before construction began, about 1/3 mile inland of the coast between Merritt Head and Bonar Point. Last deactivated in 1953. Also referred to as Oxford Battery in some documents.

Neat! By the looks of the video it seems you're using some sort of glide/fly-cam, what model?
