    The shame of it is apart from the challenge of flying through there you could have just carried it. I bet that looks impressive from above though, did you get any more shots?

    Sorry to say but the crash and the warning on the pilot app are more or less logical.
    I suppose the pillars are made from metal and there running active electrical wires, which induces magnetic fields, through it.
    And thats a recipe for disaster.

    What was that? Where is the most awaiting epic video? Just watch "Tree Dancing" before call epic anything.

    There's a lot of metal in them there lamp posts! RF echos in perfect symmetry. For that kind of shot, you're better off using your P3 as a steady cam! Here's a safer distance:

    So as a learning point, would a shot like this be better off in A mode? Just turn off GPS in this case. Or is the interference from the radio perspective so there is no good control of the aircraft?

    Agreed. Looks like GPS got confused with direction from the interference of the metal light posts and ATTI mode might have been the way to go.

    Looks to me like the prop hit on the left and it went quickly right. Did it hit? Otherwise, yeah, electromagnetic interference.

    For shots like that, prop guards are pretty much a must have.

    Had my speakers turned up full when I clicked that vid, awesome sound track BTW.

    That was going extremely well. Awesome shot before the little mishap.

    I thought the vision positioning assist was suppose to help in scenarios like this. Isn't that what the downward sonar and bottom camera are for?
