if it's not this, then what?
You are a good drone pilot Chris.You're gutsy Chris. I have to ask a what if question. If for some reason you crashed the drone up there, do you have a way to get it? Or was this a do or die mission?
I ask, because I'm pretty conservative how I fly my drone.
In 2014 I bought a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+.
I had never flown anything RC before. After a month of owning my drone, I went to the Cedar River to fly it several feet over the water so I could have a bird’s eye view of the water. I didn’t use my mobile device for viewing the flight, couldn’t tell if it was coming towards me or away from me towards some bushes. It flew into the bushes across the river. Having seen a few fly fishers cross this area the year before, I knew I could wade across to retrieve it, but it was late February and the water was waist deep. Nevertheless, I grabbed a long stick and crossed the river judiciously, clothes and all, and retrieved my (very pricey) drone.
Back to your video, very impressive.
