    Hey folks. I was out this morning testing settings on my polarizer lenses from www.cheapdronefilters.com and had a real close call!

    Lesson learned, seriously scout your flight path......

    Anyway,
    Here's the PSA

    I'll change it to "how to fly like a badass". Thanks for the suggestion

    Just an fyi..... FPV thru a CPL won't likely let you see the glint/shine off of lines or anything reflective like wires, airplanes, helicopters, etc.

    Likely wouldn't have helped you anyway as the lines were well "hidden" in the shady side of bridge where there wouldn't be reflections anyway.

    I never fly with polarized glasses and don't even allow them in the plane.

    Nice flying and video regardless. Pretty country.
