    Here's one of my favorite videos of someone flying their Phantom in New York city.

    Wouldn't there be tons of RF interference flying over high rise buildings in a dense area like this? There must be tons of cel towers on those buildings. Or is he just getting lucky?

    It's possible he avoids interference by staying close to his multi-rotor. I noticed the clips he uses doesn't actually show him flying any real distance. They are short, albeit beautiful, clips put together. He could actually be standing on top of each of the buildings near his flying machine.

    True, but I imagine the power of the cel towers would be enough to really cause havoc regardless of how close he was to his craft. But that's just my uneducated guess :)

    Is it definitely shot with DJI Phantom?
