  1. Honestly, when I flew this last year, before I was certified (yes, I know, I'm bad), I didn't know that I could go above the crane. I had interpreted the "above 400' allowance" to be for permanent structures like buildings, hills or smokestacks. I fly a DJI Inspire 1 with the X3 camera and have never turned off the 400' limiter in the software. Thanks for the info guys.
  2. By the way, the crane, fully extended is 500' tall so I wasn't able to get a shot of the entire thing from above.
  3. This is one way we use our drone, to promote something big for one of our regular clients. Joyce Crane got a new 900-ton lift capacity crane and needed to promote it. This video has been placed on their web site (which Encore Multimedia created) along with more info. The 900-tone crane is the largest mobile crane made and there are only small handful in the USA.
  4. Here is the first "demo" video we did right after we got our DJI Inspire 1. We shot and edited this in a day. Fly-by-wire firmware wasn't even available on the Inspire when we got one of the first ones so, all this was flown manually. We just wanted to show a little of what the drone could do since it was so new then (2015) to everyone in this area especially. We are working on a new demo video now and I will post it when complete.
