Took my Mavic Mini for its first indoor flight and everything went well until I landed it on a kitchen counter top and it flle off onto the floor.

No harm done except the rubber isolating hangers either side of the camera gimbal came undone where they clip into the shell.  And boy are they tricky to re-attach!  Was very tricky to do, hope I don't have to repeat that too often!

Sorry that happened, give the rest of us a little knowledge of things to come though. Maybe things get easier with practice??

I only flew it indoors. I'm in a no-zone and didn't have the time to go out and try it. Indoors it acts like a tripod, is super smooth, super stable, I'm very very impressed.
Always use the protections indoor, always!

Hi, we're sorry to know about the incident. Please fly the aircraft in an open area where in there's no interference to avoid the incident. Thank you for your support.

Interference had nothing to do with it, pilot error, I landed it with one leg just on edge of counter and it slipped off, my fault entirely.

If you look at the gimbal, you will see it hangs on small three rubber mounts. One at the rear and one either side, in my case both side ones popped out.
