So I was flying my p3a down at a familiar park that has a nice stream running along it that I love to fly over.Anywho there was this guy there flying this huge hexacopter and he was telling me about how awsome these new carbon fibre props he got are.So we where like flying over the stream filming each others bird when he started to get a little to close to my p3 I tried reversing full throttle but he just flew straight into my comparitvly little p3.His massive hexacopter with the carbon blades broke one of my plastic blades in half and with that I went to full throttle and up.She powered hard and I tried desperatly to make it to the bank on the other side of the stream but a meter from the bank she went straight into the drink.
Im like F!@#$%$@#@. I jumped headfirst into the creek and picked up my p3 which on inspection beside a broken prop and water pissing out of every oraface in it I also noticed it had a huge shark like tear on one of the motor arms.Im thinking straight away right of read on the forums about the brown rice and blow dryers I need to get it into ER asap.
Needless to say I felt a tear welling up in my eye as looked down at my broken p3 i was tottaly devasted and angry at this tool and his carbon fibre hexacopter.Right then i hear a beeping sound and thought for a second omg its still got power, but no It was my alarm clock telling me it was time to wake up.lol True story and now I no I really love this bird cause im dreaming about it hehe.

In my defense I was still half asleep. After re-reading I realized that it was only a dream.
