After 11h of flying and over 85 km with my DJI Phantom 3 Professional  its happening on Flight 127. I hit the Tree and crash Phantom 3 Professional. In video you can see the damage (broken gimbal and 4K camera). My DJI still flying now without camera and  have a new job It was a good lesson for me and I am ready to order new one.

Ooooooh, there you are.... At 19 seconds, it was all I could do to keep from yelling, "look out for the tree!".  Beautiful wedding procession and beautiful day = beautiful video....  
But I do like the P3s NEW job...

I thought for a second you were going to recover as you seemed to pause there for a while amongst the branches, but often that tablet screen and ever so slight lag in the transmission is the difference between a near miss and a crash. Great attitude though and great videos.

I commend you for admitting it was user error and not the aircraft's fault. Most people aren't like that.

Great story with the original Phantom.  I'm sure I'm not alone in cringing seeing you fly the new phantom over the heads of people at a wedding party.  Danger must be your middle name...
