Ah... Nice video to match your shots. Interesting angles, did you fly under it.. you must have been quite close to visually guide that, or was it all done via the screen.

Well done, your video is excellent. To think each tower is supported by that triangle of (what) concrete? Amazing engineering. Did you lose any signal flying into the tower?

I was about a hundred meters  away the other side of the security fence. I was using my CrystalSky to fly which happened to turn off just as I flew between the "V" of the support. Seems the sun shining on the screen caused it to get to hot and it turned off. Perfect time for it to happen. Only thing I could think of doing was to fly straight up and out the top.

Would love to know how much weight is on those supports. Boggles the mind. As to the signal loss, I was about 100 meters away and lost about 25% of my signal once I was inside.
