Hi
I was using dronedeploy this morning while photographing a construction site. When the run was complete drone tried to land on my vehicle bonnet as thats where it took off from. It got it wrong and ended up crashing and there seems to now be a crack in the glass covering the camera.
Luckily it still works and there doesnt seem to be any problem with the camera footage even with the crack!!!!
Can this camera glass be replaced ?

PS - do not take off from your vehicle bonnet or roof. Rather start on firm ground!!!!!

That's good advice. In fact, I'd expect that before you tried to take off you'd get the message that reads something like, "Compass interference; move the aircraft or calibrate compass". In other words, you should avoid taking off from or near potential sources of magnetic interference.
