Yes, flying that close, the amplitude of the transmitter is so high that it acts basically like an EMP. No way to filter it out. Phantom thought you were still climbing and was trying to prevent an over-altitude so your left stick up had no effect. I've not run into this situation but I assume changing to Atti won't help since it still thinks you are over max altitude?Yes - Drone Camps RC posted on youtube quite a while back that you don't want to get too close to a transmitter because the data within the micro computer in the bird can get "scrambled."
Thanks for posting.
Exactly. Cell towers should mostly be fine as the power density is low unless they are using microwave for back haul. Radio/TV transmission towers, possibly running at thousands of kW, directional microwave links, or radar installations are a quite different proposition - those may fry the avionics and/or radio circuits.Was that microwave on the side? I would not fly in front of that.
Dirty bird has a video of flying his P2 very close to the top of a cell tower and nothing happened.
Personally, I am staying away.
