    there is a classic old arched metal bridge spanning the Brazos river that I would really like to take some videos / stills of from the river perspective but I VERY concerned about flying around all the large metal beams that comprise the center span of the bridge - I don't want to end up flying a P3 into the Brazos. I would be able to do pre-flight check and calibration down stream. Any thoughts on if I should attempt this project? The link will take you to a picture of the bridge. https://s.yimg.com/fz/api/res/1.2/i...X-Brazos_River-1934_Brazos_River_Bridge_3.JPG

    If you are at any distance that allows you to photograph the bridge rather than just small parts of it, you should be OK.
    Don't go in close and don't fly under it.
