    What??? no flyaway?? no RTH triggered by lost GPS?? No motor failures?? How can this be possible???

    Good stick work, you are a pilot, with either courage, talent, or a lack of fear.

    In any event, it is nice to see what is possible, thanks.

    Flights like this expand everyone's idea of what is possible, kind of like seeing the first kid do a flip on a skateboard and realizing what is possible!

    Haha, thanks, I had a couple satellites but put it in atti to be safe, at least I think thats the safe way to fly with limited satellite access :?: As for crashes, this is my third DJI so I do kind of learn the hard way lol.

    I'm not surprised at the lack of GPS in those rocks. Awesome flying! Flying low and slow can have it's rewards.

    Just be mindful where you fly. Gatlinburg is nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park which has had a long standing "No aircraft policy" which was recently updated to specifically include any and all R/C aircraft regardless if for hobby or commercial.

    I'm sure there are places where you can get away with it but with the amount of "cell phone police" around I'd be careful as the fines are hefty.
