Hey Chorn1966 (sorry I don't know how to quote) I ignored a compass error and continued to fly. The drone kinda picked a direction went into sport mode and kissed a tree.

Here is my crash:


I also made another video about fixing it myself.  I replaced the body and one of the ESC boards.  the body was $30 and the circuit board was $30.  I bought some other odds and ends as well for about $6 or so, so for less than $70, I was back flying!

I was genuinely afraid that I would end up in the same boat, but I just kept telling myself, "take your time," and "go slow."

It's definitely not for everyone though.  I hope everything comes out ok for you!
