Wow. Was there a lot of wind that day? The Phantom is banked 30 degrees holding stable flight. It looks when he turned with the wind, he moved faster than expected and smashed your Inspire..... Bummer, thanks for sharing and glad you're back in the air!

It was actually very calm and nice that day. Lesson to be learned"Watch your arse when flying with other people, even if it's your own brother!"

Zero damage....looks like another case of crappy carbon props that just shattered when he hit me. I think if I had the normal plastic ones on this would've happened. As you see by the video it was like a slower floaty fall because the props just broke the tips off 2 of them.

Problem with the inspire is the fact that it's overweight due to having a landing gear so it's harder for it to recover when it gets out of balance.

What do you mean its overweight?
The 3510's can produce 1,600g of thrust per corner so that gives in the region of 6,400g of thrust for an aircraft with an take off mass of around 3kg?

May have been calm on the ground but from the looks of the video and the tilt of the P3 it appeared to be fighting at least some wind up there. I agree with your assessment.... Never ever fly around inexperienced pilots. Hell... I won't hardly fly when anyone else is around lol.

If that was my brother I would put him in timeout!
No drone for week and write a 500 word essay on why do you think you hit me!

Glad to hear there was not too much damage.

What were you brothers thoughts on how it happened?
Was this just down to lack of experience on the sticks?
Did you give your brother a severe beating?
