That was pretty cool, some great shots. Nice flying and filming.

I know this is a common theme, and I'm certainly guilty of it, but it did go on a little long - some of the shots were similar enough to the others that they could have been cut.

And, my calves hurt looking at all those stairs.

You are right. I cut a lot and still ended up with TOO much footage. Oh well.

I'm intrigued. That is some steel structure and I would have expected it to have caused compass errors. Did you launch from the top of the tower or the base?

Nice! What part of the tower or where did you take off from?
Runner/hiker all my life, how were the quads the next day?

I was wondering the same thing. My MP will pick up rebar in a concrete lad behind my house, I can’t imagine trying to launch from a steel tower?

Awesome footage! Love the one spot specifically where you panned straight backwards. Gives such great perspective of the size of that tower. Minnesota is beautiful, I sure wish I had my MP when we went there on a road trip last year.

Both. At the top I held I out as far as possible. I had to wait a couple minutes for it to get good enough signal to fly safely.

I’d have been nervous to leave my drone out while I climbed, LOL! I suppose your fiancée could watch over it while you were climbing.

The very top/observation deck. I just held it out as far as possible. This is me holding the drone with the camera/gimbal pointed straight down waiting for signal.
