Hi. Thank you for posting and sharing this information.

Thanks for the appreciative comment DJI Stephen.  Yes, there are many ways to enjoy our DJI drones while being respective of others, and flying responsibly with safety in mind.

After all the bad news and reviews over the past couple of years, drones are finally getting their nod of approval... it’s about time too. ;-)

All that metal, you would think your compass would seriously go haywire...

By staying at a relative safe distance, Keeping your comfort zone intact, you surely have saved the day... ;-)
In my youth, we would sneak into the boxcar, swipe a few explosive charges, and clip them to the track, a dozen at a time. When the next train would ride over them and they went kaboom, the train conductor would hit the brakes, often squealing to a halt. Meanwhile we were hiding in the tall grass, LOAO... HEHE

EH, we were young and foolish... what can I say. At least I admit my fault.

My pleasure, sharing the bright spot light, with the other active forum members...

We all have a responsibility to do the same. If in our own ways.

Yes, distance is key!
Hahahahaha.
We used to put nickels on the tracks.
And retrieved them after the train passed and made them twice as big.

Nickels. Heck we could only afford pennies. That was a few bubble gum worth of fun, as it was...

But we preferred those track blasting cap warning signals. Haha


I can still here the wheels squealing, grinding the track, to a fast halt... ;-)

Across the track was the Hobo bush...

Yes, back in the 1950’s that was still chump change, but we were poor.

Do you realize what a kid then, could buy with a nickel? A chocolate bar, or a bottle of soda... ;-)

You have to know, this is mid northern Alberta... on the prairies.

We phased out those one cent coins five years ago.

I cashed in my Texas Micky full, and now regret that.

Copper went up in value.
