    Now every time there is a new guy I am a bit leery. Especially when one was just kicked out the side door.
    Well, here I go.......somebody throw me a lifeline..

    Your answer would be- It is a possible risk. I have but your results may vary.

    Something tells me this may be a setup.

    Be interesting to see IP addresses, wouldn't it?

    Nevertheless, as has been said, received wisdom is (and DJI manual says) stay away from them. If you do go near there might be trouble, or you might be fine.

    Any web site worth it's salt should be able to track any IP's connecting to the server as well as having a handy dandy Block or ban list to keep repeat offenders away.

    Don't feed the troll. Oh and yeah you can in theory fly above a high voltage cable, though it's not generally recommended.

    1) Yes. I fly over 120' HT lines regularly w/o incident.
    Can you? Unknown, your HT lines may vary.
    Advisable? Officially not recommended.

    2) Yes. phpBB can block IP addresses, but only the Admin or one of its Mods can do so.
