    Well someone dared me to fly inside so here goes, lost signal and luckily RTH did its job. Funny thing it was one of the cops who dared me ;)

    WOW! You dodged a bullet. Luckily you weren't "in" the chimney...very close to it though. Now if that chimney top was at like maybe 30 feet high, the phantom would ascend so many feet then RTH...however at that height it just moved forward/backward and not up/down.

    WHEW! That was close. Great video and *very* ballsy. That'd be a great 1000th post..too bad you had to wait for 1042 lmao

    Do you think they would open the bottom and let you scrape out the parts?
    .
    How tall is that "smoke stack?"

    207m I'd need a long rope or have to use my breaking and entering skills to get her back
