So I had my first tip over today.   3 months of flying under my belt with no issues.    This was all my fault.    A neighbor came by while I was getting ready to land.   Instead of powering down like I ALWAYS do, I went to CSC.   I have no idea why I did it, but the bird started going sideways and I didn't stop doing what I was doing.     It drifted from the sidewalk onto some grass covered with light snow.    Doesn't look like there was any damage.  Props are fine.   There was a little snow on the shell and gimble.  Only a little.    I wiped it off quickly with a paper towel.       Put another battery in after letting is sit for about 10 minutes.   Everything seemed normal and had no issues during flight.    Throttled down to land and stop the props this time.  No issues at all.   Live and learn (and practice).

marc,
That is for sure! i did the CSC shut off myself with someone nearby a couple of weeks ago and man i could not believe it either..flopped around like a fish out of water....anyhow...thought to myself, did i just do that?..yep! The CSC shut off is way too sensitive and if not done 100% you are going to go topsy tervy...so land and just throttle down is my rule too.
