    I planned on flying in a field nearby, but noticed there is a small power station at the far end, would it be risky to fly there? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank[​IMG]s!!

    I wouldn't have a second thought flying there if it were me.

    well how about flying near this solar power farm, when I took this it was still being set-up but I haven't been near it since, the owner is a friend and told me that they have 8 satellite dishes as well.

    If this is in the USA, you may have problems with the authorities. Flying near Power plants and some other types of facilities is frowned upon/illegal in some cases. Be careful. Not to mention potential for interference to your signal

    Hey, thanks for the response, took it out there and ran through 2 batteries, didnt have any issues with flight controls, but did notice the video feed stuttering and displaying some green lines, i guess that would be from the interference possibly.
