Video of the Week: “What happens when you fly near a radiotower.”

You just don’t come across too many of these type of videos.  In this one found on Youtuber GranVlog’s channel, he documents how he consistently lost all GPS signal and the effects when flying near a radio tower.  He even replicates the “experiment” and show’s how and when the GPS signal is lost.
These types of videos are valuable information for all the other pilots out there.  Fortunately he didn’t suffer from any crashes or damaged gear!  It’s good to come across lessons learned videos on Youtube.  There’s the potential for others to learn and avoid catastrophe’s while flying.

  1. It would be interesting and helpful to know exactly what the tower had on it. I’m guessing it was a combination of moderately powered fm radio along with any manner of microwave, television, and God only knows what else. Even if not anywhere near the GPS frequencies there may have been enough sheer rf to overwhelm the gps reciever in the phantom. What is also very interesting is that his remote control continued to work under the same circumstances.
