Unless they had perrmission from their authorities...also posted before. Great video though!
as he knew the climbers name i'm guessing it was all authorised, either way forget that lol
That is an excellent video and a great example of drone tower inspection. I nearly pooped my pants watching it. The only damage it may cause will come from comments like yours that assume it was done irresponsibly.
Amazing he could climb that with a HUGH set of balls.
110 feet would have me sweating bullets.
It still surprises me that towers like that don't blow over with a slight gust of wind, let alone in a storm.
Swaying enough with what looks like relative calm conditions.
That had to be set up in advance. The climber was well aware of what was going on and appeared fine with it.
The 400" thing. Well, if the tower wasn't a problem, the quad(or whatever) wasn't.
I would have to say that if someone did that without permission, woe unto them.
Highly doubt that it's 1500' AGL, it would be in this list and it's not:

Still pretty **** high though. My guess is around 1000'.
I stand corrected. Actually, it looks like it's 1999' - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KDLT_tower
I don't believe yours either - It's KDLT tower which is located in Rowena SD and is 1999' - we're both wrong.
Fair enough - I was wrong and stand corrected, not a big deal. Not the first time I've made an *** of myself....
Nice video. I hope the climber did more than a bulb change.
This is a good example where a UAV can be used to inspect the tower before sending a climber.
I didn't see anything unsafe about this flight, and would assume it was done with permission of the property owner /climber.
There are a lot of 1500 ft radio/TV towers around the country - just look at the Sectional Aviation Charts.
There's two more east of Sioux Falls that are even higher.
