The Phantom 3 Standard "Miss Ruby" takes to the air for a 40,813' (7.73 mile) sunrise Litchi mission from Glen Burnie to Pasadena & back.  Presented in real time so you can experience the original sphincter-puckering thrill.

That whole parcel with the dilapidated buildings is a National Guard post.  It's clearly seeing a lot less use than in its hay day!

Thank you. 'Tis a bit sad to see those huge warehouses with their roofs caving in, you would think they could be put to some use.

Awesome video. Liked how it just missed the smoke coming out of the stacks. The credits at the end were cool as well.

Thank you.  The P3 Standard is an awesome aircraft for Litchi.  "Miss Ruby" has hundreds of Litchi flights.  Wish DJI would allow the Assistant to pull the on-board flight logs & add them to the DJI logs (Litchi flights don't get added though the on-board data is still there).  I'd love to know just how far she has flown!

Thanks Bob.  Skirting along the edge of the smoke was sheer luck with the way the wind was blowing.  The mission was already programmed a few days earlier & I set her up & launched.  This was the first run for this mission & I'll be flying it again with some tweaks when conditions are right.

Nice video and nice flight!! Any mods to your RC, seems like there would be a lot of interference especially going around that big radio antenna/tower thing.
I'm in MD also, so I know it was a bit chilly that morning, ready for the snow?

Thank you.  The aircraft & remote are stock but remember this is a Litchi autonomous mission so you don't need RC contact for the mission to run.  I only had RC contact for the first & last few thousand feet.  Most of the mission the Phantom was running the mission as programmed.  I've never noticed interference around any sort of radio tower (check out my "Television Hill" video over in the Mavic section...multiple AM/FM/VHS/UHF antennae...some pumping out 50,000 watts had no effect).  It was a chilly morning & I believe the temperature when I launched was in the mid-20s.

I agree, radio interference is just another urban myth. I flew around a major communications tower manually with no ill effects at all.

Amateur?  Must have taken some pre flight planning and manually flying parts of that mission before doing the whole flight.

My vids are the amateur ones as not even edited. Will do some editing this month.

One thing I need to learn now. First flying, then photos and video, camera settings etc.  Soon editing.

Wow that's a P3S.  Video it still excellent.  Great shots and great positioning. I have so much to learn from watching video's like yours.

For complex city missions I do a lot of RECON & prep, but here in the county it's a lot simpler.  Things are pretty much flat & 200-250' clears everything except things like the plant towers & a few tall antenna masts which are well-known to long-time residents.  "Morning Passage" was the first flight for that mission & was programmed on my Nexus tablet.
