Completely amazed that my drone did a 360 degree flip after hitting a power line and did not crash to the ground. How is this possible? Has anyone else ever had their Phantom upside down without crashing?

You are just lucky..
Lucky that you are high enough altitude to recover.
Lucky that you didn't lose more than half a prop.
Lucky that the WWE wrestling clothesline move flipped the phantom over to an angle, enough for recovery.

Wow, If there is an explaination, must have something to do with phantom forward motion, catching that wire just right to, help catapult her into a powered 360, best I can come up with!
Would you do that again, i'd like to see from another angle

"Would I do it again?" Haha, that's funny! and ya know what? I've got a backup Phantom to my main backup and you've got me thinking... hmmm. Except I'd choose something different than a power line, HAH! But you know the old saying, "I bet you can't do that again."
