Well, actually, :huhh: you can see the narrow, blasted channel where the powerhouse is. They're rolling water out pretty good in this video. Pretty good jig fishing off the rocks there in the spring. That channel doesn't meet up with the old river bed until a couple miles down.

The smokestack next to the sunset is plant Branch. It will be torn down in the next year or two.

Cool video! Looks like they don't spill much there either?

That's an awesome video! I never saw the backside of Sinclair dam before your video. It will be interesting to see if you can find diving seagulls with it. I can see benefits of scouting large hunting plots with that drone too.Thanks for sharing.

It is VERY sensitive to line of sight. If you crest over a line of trees, it loses the wifi hookup. I found that if I turn my back to it when it's only 20 feet behind me, it loses the FPV. I'm a little disappointed in the distance. I'm only getting out about 1400' before losing the video feed.
