    I hope you got it back. The thought of having to just leave it there would upset me. The good thing about a phantom 3 is you just let go of the sticks and it will stop dead in the sky just like it has brakes...But only if you are quick enough to see the tree first.

    Got my Bmfa insurance on Thursday and got my membership card on Saturday, public liability insurance up to £25000000 for £25. Its piece of mind if i ever get the dreaded flyaway. Plus it looks good for drone pilots it shows we are sensible with our hobbie.

I always fly my phantom when there are no people around so i can concentrate on flying.You just dont know, people can be just as upredictable as animals.I may sound...
