    I just put together this crane erection video for a crane company in North Texas. Its a little long cause it is every piece of the crane being lifted up. But pretty cool views of Dallas.

    I've never had an opportunity to watch a stationary crane assembled. Thanks for sharing that good video with us.

    Please tell us about the flight. What did you fly, how long, permissions you obtained?
    Thanks again.

    It took 3 days to film. Over 6 hours of video recording, so a lot of battery charges (i have 4 batteries). I used the phantom 2 vision+.

    I got permission from both the general contractor and the crane subcontractor. Really fun flight.
