    I woke up this morning at 4:30 AM in order to reach Devils Tower, so I could fly my Inspire at the first crack of Daylight. Here are the Results... Let me know what you think



    Have Fun,
    Chuggie

    Yes, It was quite windy at elevation. You can see the wind profusely blowing the vegetation when viewing the 4k video file from a hard drive.

    It looked flatter on top in Close Encounters. How did they get all that gear up there anyway? ;)

    I checked the list of No Fly Zones, and Devils Tower was not on the list, so I flew. I would Love to fly at Yellowstone, but Yellowstone National Park is on the no fly list, and I can understand why, Yellowstone is a wildlife preserve, and a RC helicopter could disturb the wildlife. I am also sponsored by a Wyoming government agency, which will help if I need to obtain flight permits.

    Devils tower is not a National Park, it is the First National Monument and still has yet to be upgraded to a National Park. I checked the DJI No Fly Zones list before I went to Devils Tower, and it was not on the list or map. I actually took off from outside the National Monument boundaries from a place where there was no one around, and then flew toward the tower. My flight was at 5am in the morning so I could get the very first light of day on the tower, which is why there aren't any climbers on the tower or other people seen on the ground below. If Devils Tower is a place where I am not supposed to fly, then I will not fly there again; however, I checked every resource I could find, to see if it was a no fly zone, before I made my flight there.

    I think they had a giant ramp made of mashed potatoes.

    I would like to go back during the winter and shoot it again with snow on it.
