    Im amazed the image remains clear after passing through the steam, I expected condensation on the lens to be evident.

    We have a pellet mill here and puts out steam like that and have wanted to fly through it but didn't know if it would hurt my bird but after seeing

    It is a cool video, but without permission it is also something you are advised not to do. All critical infrastructure is more or less considered NFZ.

    From the FAA site -
    • Do not fly near or over sensitive infrastructure or property such as power stations, water treatment facilities, correctional facilities, heavily traveled roadways, government facilities, etc.
    There was a guy on here about a year ago who was in trouble with the law for flying near a power plant in California as I recall.

    I dunno Dirkclod, your concerns may be well founded. There is likley to be a lot of particulates and nasty gasses mixed up in the steam.
