I use a preflight checklist and the #1 reads
“Check launch site; interference, people, animals, trees, and wires”
Sorry for your loss.
my very first flight with a phantom 3 a couple of years ago, I used the return to home button and not really understanding how I work, the drone bounce off a pole and into a lake. no damage done to the drone just wet, let it dry for about a month and it flew great just the photos wasn't good, cant of a yellow tint
Quick update everyone, I bought new props, (the low noise props because they were the only true oem ones I could find on Amazon Prime, and yes they are much lower pitched making their perceived loudness much less!) calibrated the severely messed up imu, and the drone flies perfectly fine! Camera and gimbal work great too! So happy! Just need a new shell and possibly a replacement gimbal yaw arm.
I just bought my dream camera and it was a little expensive so I don't have enough money for a new drone right now so I'm glad it still works!
Thanks everyone and Happy New Year!
