    Is it practical? If you lose signal RTH activates right into the bottom of the bridge. I guess you could cancel RTH if you still have control, or set RTH to Hover in place and you reposition yourself. If you lose GPS and compass perhaps you could ATTI into safety. Would be way easier if ATTI could manually be activated, or if we had topside avoidance.

    Where's the thrill, if there's no danger of losing it?

    Although seriously, I would not go under a bridge unless I had clear line of sight, i.e. I was perpendicular to the structure and I was well within operating range. You could always set RTH max height at the height you were making your under bridge pass? Assuming no other obstacles between you and it.
