Holes in the ground… abandoned Soviet bunker

Olli and I went again to the Kalasberget bunker, to take some video and drone footage. It continues to be an amazing-looking bunker in the middle of the forest. Olli took some great pictures, and we got decent drone footage, too. The drone took some hits though.

I hit a brick wall while flying towards the bunker though from an abandoned building, and also hit the side of the bunker's gun while trying to exit. The smart do-not-collide logic of the drone interfered with manual guidance. Will have to see how to turn the collision avoidance off.

Now it refused my manual commands, while accidentally drifting towards obstacles, and unable to lift itself at its drifted position cleanly. Then I hit the wrong button and the rotors clipped the side of the exit hole a bit.

Need more training to fly this thing. And better understanding of what modes to use.

Here's the blocked entrance tunnel:
