Multnomah Falls (542 foot drop) in 4K

My wife is from Portland and every time we go back she always wants to stop there. But you got some balls flying it there with how crowded it gets. But i'm the type of guy that shy's away from people for fear of harassment.

It's a great spot, right off the freeway!
 
Great video. I sure miss living in the Pacific NW. I've driven this route many (many) times on my way to Portland and/or the Oregon Coast. Great work!
 
Hope everyone likes my latest!! :)

Multnomah Falls is 620' from top to bottom and you have footage well above the top of the falls. What did you have to do to get permission to fly that high and to do it at a national historic landmark?
 
The height would be subjective. Since the top of the falls could be considered ground level height would start from there. Also once below that level and going down the falls, it would then be counted from the bottom. Now while that does exceed the 400' limit it would likely be excluded due to not being in any fashion airspace for commercial vehicles. Just like flying off the side of a mountain. You would instantly be over 400 feet. While the FAA is strict, common sense ruling comes into play as well. But that's my two cents.

The way I understood the rule is that you need to be within 400' of any land mass. In this case I think you need to maintain a maximum of 400' horizontally, you would then need to return to below 400' AGL prior to exceeding the horizontal boundary. Then again I am a complete Noob so might be full of it :)

And you are right. I would just say considering the location involved I don't think there would be any interference with commercial air traffic. Lol
