Good day P3P owners. This is the top of our house lots of metal though I know its a little bit risky due to small open space though what really concerns me is the metals all around will it safely fly without losing signal? other consideration is there is a satellite cell tower around 500meters and a small satellite antenna around 150m.

TIA!

In my experience, you may get some drift as the compass detects the metal around it. If you fly through, it may "pull" to one side or the other. Easy to compensate for. Very unlikely you will outright lose control, especially with open air for GPS signal.

Lots of obstacles but you should be fine just fly slow and safe. I fly at construction sites almost daily and fly around a lot more metal than that. Just to be double safe make sure you are comfortable flying in manual mode without GPS support. This way if you run into a problem (loss of GPS etc) you can still maneuver the aircraft without panicking and losing control. Practice ahead of time.
