    I got a job shooting a major construction site (29 floors high, cranes, atriums etc.) for internal use only (no storyline).
    Apart from the obvious shots (overview, building activity, scale) anything I should pay extra attention too? Ideas for really cool shots?

    Input so far:
    • shoot exterior elevator going up
    • pay attention to any rc controlled concrete booms (2,4 or 5,8 GHz)
    • calibrate compass in park next door - away from metal
    Other ideas or input?

    Will you be shooting in an enclosed space, or will there be a cross breeze?

    It's outside only, but will also be flying in between buildings with 10m apart.

    Look for the directional antennas (usually on the roofs) and dont fly in front of them. Check the direction of wind currents between the buildings. Good luck

    stay away from iron, i once flied a naza v2 in a very big advandoned building and the iron int he foundations near the sub parking area totally mess up the compass i had to manually control yaw to keep direction as the controller was unable to do it by itself.

    If you can get building dimensions especially helpful would be the floor heights and overall building heights.. then you can correlate those to your altimeter on the control app..
