    You have no idea how huge these things are until you drive up a little closer to them. Massive.

    They are definitely interesting subjects. When they're not cranking out power I usually like to put a worker on top to give some scale:

    Those blades are certainly enormous. I must have a plant near me or something because I do not see turbines anywhere but I see the blades being driven down a highway near me all of the time. The size is crazy.

    Awesome! As for huge, that's an understatement.. I've watched them be built roughly @15mls north of me, and when they were installing the props they were standing inside the prop holderlol...

    Also, its very hard to judge your distance to them. While looking at the screen, I thought I was really close, but VLOS looked way different.

    Indeed! It's like standing on an RV 285ft in the air. The first time I stood on top of one it took 30mins to get off all fours, lol.
