    It won't 'see' wires, heck with the pylon, watch out for those power lines. I almost did that once, those wires don't show up until the last moment.

    Good point. Watching the video again after reading your post I realized that while the tower is easily visible from a distance, the power lines weren't obvious until it was almost too late to do anything about them, at least at that speed.
