    Has anyone tried flying around the Hollywood sign? Google Earth says it is 1700' to the top. Looks that it will be difficult to get to the top but I see areas around 1120' where you can launch. Also, would I get kicked out or get in trouble for flying up there? There is a radio tower on top and I'm afraid of interference that may make my bird go crazy. I do remember seeing a YT vid in this area.

    Yes, the radio tower up there is 106 ft tall.
