The video below was shot on a Phantom 4 Pro and although it is an excellent demo for what this aircraft/software/camera can do, it is more about a few valuable lessons I learned

- I previously had a Phantom 4 Pro+ but returned it due to a number of bugs, and although the setup was quick and the screen very bright, it was just so small after using an iPad mini2 - also had BAD video downlink and the touch screen was non-responsive in many menus, and missed 3rd party apps

So now happy with the Phantom 4 Pro. Very nice example of why you should get the P4P, and maybe something here will help you!

Somehow the only damage was a slightly chipped prop (replaced immediately) and a scuff mark on the top of the arm - i was beyond lucky - I was only seeing the lower wires and actually thought I was still rising when KABLAM! It looks like it a tension line, would have really sucked to have taken out the power in a neighborhood on the heels of a devastating tornado - record the news, don't make it!

Funny part about wires, you just never know where they will appear, sometimes in the most unlikely places.

Two weeks ago I was in Maui, Honolua Bay. It's a very isolated snorkeling area that I assumed was free of wires. I was WRONG. As I ascended straight up in the middle of the bay a wire came into view, in my disbelief. It appeared to be a single telephone wire strung across this big bay. Fortunately I saw it in time and avoided it. Lesson learned.... Always watch the top of the screen when ascending straight up while flying FPV, you might be surprised.
