Murphy’s Law, sh*t happens when you least expect it. Getting a couple flights before the rain, I managed to find a peaceful parking lot with no one around. Calm music sets me for an easy joyful rhythm and 58 seconds later…crash. Taken out by Washington’s finest overgrown weed.

Was that real-time or sped up? How is your drone after the crash?

Yes video is in real-time, never sped up or slow down, no vfx post work. My damages were all 4 broken props, video transmitter protector popped off, and my gopro hero 4 black got dinged and scratched. I quickly changed props and flew again.

Nice sequence. Weeds are to drones as power lines are to hot air balloons. Only no fire afterwards.

That is impressive flying. Although I have never flown one to know either way. Glad you were up and running again.

Thanks, thankfully we have more weeds than power lines.

We walk before we run :thumbsup:, a $20-$30 micro quad and space in your house will get your heart pumping.
