Quick clip of a small, ahem, event I had recently. All is well that ends well.

Yeah, pretty horrid -- but it was available on Soundcloud as CC and certainly no worse than my flying.

Ouch! But it does give me an idea. Open a hedge trimming business using my P3 for people with really tall hedges. Maybe I can make back some of the money spent on buying "accessories".(Honestly, I couldn't fly without my "DJI dingle dice", or "remove from case before flying" tags.)
Thanks for sharing the vid!

Nice green and blues though!

I would consider swapping the blades on that side or at the very least check them carefully for damage.

Aha! A man with his Phantom intact *and* a sense of humor.
Yesterday, during a test flight, my bird was across the street. As I made a pretty sharp turn, it dawned on me I was just about to run into some small branches. Fortunately, I missed them altogether and that wisp of Spanish moss didn't toss me out of the air.

Sometimes, when turning, stopping, backing up, etc., I discover that "driving" my Phantom is somewhat like driving on ice!

I used prop guards on my old Phantom 1 and they were about as useful as the proverbial tits on a bull. Didn't protect the thing when it really mattered, snapped off and got in the way of things... The lesson I'm learning (albeit the hard way) is really to fly cautiously -- as aburkefl says: it's like driving on ice, and you should plan accordingly, give yourself some margin and not try the stupid "I think I'll squeeze just fine between these two trees..." stunts.

Hahahaha, loved the slow motion and added chainsaw sound effect.    Bet you felt a great sense of relief wash over you as realized you missed it by thaaaat much!

As my imaginary Zen master might say: "Ahh grasshopper, It is only a bad experience if you did not learn anything!"
