    OK, so I've been asked to film shots inside a "massive warehouse". I think they are talking aircraft hanger size but yet to check it out.

    What should I be aware of? Obviously I'll switch "GO HOME" off in the software and just choose "LANDING". Plus fly in ATTI mode not GPS. Be aware of surroundings. Have a spotter.

    Anything else?

    Avoid getting too close to celings - the rotors can suck you up onto it which may or may not be painful. Similarly getting too close to walls can put you into turbulent air from the wash and move the thing around more than you're used to. In the clear it should fly nicely in atti mode.
