Hey guys, I am loving this pre-programed flight mission profile. QUESTION: Can your flight exclusion zones be configured and set up to create a zone of margin which would protect the bird from a tower that has guy wires attached for support? Essentially a triangle shape from the ground based anchor point up to the connection with the tower but thick enough to keep you from collision when approached from either direction. And thick enough to add some buffer zone because a lot of the towers in the USA are in areas that have a high amount of wind.

We are working closely with industry leaders to further improve the cell tower scan. Respecting guy wires during flight planning and execution is one aspect of that. Your solution sketch could be one way on how we will address this task. For now, you may want to work in general settings with the option to change the "obstacle distance". This is used during flight plan creation to keep at least this distance away from any obstacle, antenna or tower. Keep in mind that when you change this setting, we recommend you to recreate your flight plans so our planning algorithms can optimize the plan with the new obstacle distance. PS: Thank you for adding your ideas to our idea platform. Best, Martin
