    I think cell towers are okay to fly around right? They are everywhere after all. But how can you be sure? I've been doing research on cell radio frequency to discover more?

    Usually when I want to fly a new location, I check aerials and street view stuff on google - gathering as much intel as I can. If I spot some sort of tower, it always scares me. I understand it's probably a good idea to shy away from anything in general, but do you really have to? How do you know what type of signal the tower is actually giving off. Maybe it's time to buy a spectrum analyzer to really be sure? Cheers

    If i'm not mistaken, the new version of the FPV Booster app has this feature.

    Crashed my last ship doing a tower. Everything going fine and then it flew away. Crashed into tower inside of locked fence. Messed up cam and gimble. Decided to replace and keep for parts. Actually damage seemed to be on camera only. I think ship will still fly. Think a microwave messed it up.
