Any laws or rules about how close you can be to a dam?
Go fly by one, real close, and let us know how it goes.
I have a suspicion you might get the attention of Homeland Security pretty quickly.
My neighbors were fishing real close to one. Like right up by one. like the boat was tied off to the dam. Like they were to touching the concrete. Well anyway needless to say their fishing trip ended with a lot of guns and spotlights pointed at them.
I flew around a dam recently, no problems but then again it's usually pretty empty. Pretty much depends on if any workers freak out thinking ur a terrorist. As long as there's no posted signs against rc or anything u should be fine. Fine as in if they try to arrest u they shouldn't be able to.
I have heard TVA security is pretty harsh on drones
There is no law that states, "you cannot fly near a dam". The secret is already out on what they are made out of.

Posted a pic of a dam in Photos thread. City has crew barns right next to it. No problems at all. But I guess it's a different story on the big, prominent ones.
I never thought to ask the question.
I haven't really took but a few of the ones we have but have done so from a distance . We used to beable to drive right up to the Lock house but after 9/11 they shut that down . It is TVA and is federal here .
how did you get that pic, its gorgeous! could you share your settings, and ill go back to not hijacking threads afterwards?
thanks, nice pic!
Just flew over Waterway to get sunrise and I just used default settings in my now obsolete FC200
Just got lucky bro
Even a blind frog can catch a fly once in awhile !
Thanks for the compliment .
I never loiter by them so we are ok.
Dirk, that is one cracking photo buddy you do take some great pics .
