While hovering, unit suddenly accelerated to my face. Good thing I was away from the crowd.

Wow. Speedy recovery, bud. I hand catch mine by reaching up. I guess I will make sure to do initial stability check a meter or so above my head after takeoff.

Everything was so fast when it hit me. Crowds were watching while it was hovering 7 feet away from me and it went wild.

Hit me with your best shot I didnt even feel a thing for couple of minutes and a friend of mine saw blood dripping.

Posts like this let me know that my prop guards are staying on. Simply not worth it. Its foreseeable risk.

Spoken like a lawyer or one who closely associates with lawyers.
LOL, it takes one to spot one.

Prefer the "realist" title. I don't associate with lawyers lol. Having the guards on has not prevented me from enjoying any part of flying this bird. I also now can enjoy the fact its not going to bite me in the face. My dog is grateful too as one time the kids let him out the back door right after start up. I can tell you in that case CSC doesn't happen fast enough.

I am not one to tell anyone whether they should or shouldn't fly with these things on. In my flight situations they fit the bill.

well P3 is a toy when compared with a 550 or even bigger T-Rex Helis considering safety. But even P3 may injure you seriously so you should always stay at least 10m away.

RTH from close range would/should bring the copter straight down ... assuming it is working properly. Send the .txt file to healthy drones and look for any anomalies.

Here is the result from DJI from their Analyst "

1.The fly078 is the log for accident
2.During the flight, the aircraft drifted very quickly without any reson.
It seems to be compass interference but the the course is not very crooked, just jagged) leading the accident

Recommendation is free repair :(Fraustrating recommendation given with the severe injuries and safety of the unit.

Fortunately, your injuries don't look "severe". Do you have any video so we can help figure out what happened?
