Hi All,
Not many of you know, but im a crane operator. I was working 7 days a week for a while, 12-14 hour days. So there wasnt much time to do much of nothing. Other than work, eat, sleep. I eneded up gettting this job by pure luck. I'm helping build an apartment complex. I got permission a couple weeks ago to fly on site. Between crappy weather and high winds I finnally was able to do a flight on site. So here ya go. Enjoy!

It’s just that there is so many major construction projects on the go here.

It would be simple to fly above and around one, on the weekend.

I am surprised flying Close, to the crane, never affected the compass, negatively.

For a while I thought you were only person on site; must have been lunch hour.
Nice coverage of something we don't see too often and it didn't matter if you dropped the Phantom with all those hard hats.

Yes it was lunch time. It would be pretty hard to fly a drone and operate my crane at the same time.  flying on another job site would be risky. never knowing if a crane is going to swing this way or that. Boom up boom down. Ive thought about doing a hyperlapse when I start setting roof trusses.

You could bury a time capsule in the construction site, for future discovery. Ha

Hmmmm What to bury?  I could put it in the ground next to something I know will be dug up in the future. Like the sewer line or incoming water line. LOL
