I knew perfectly well when I bought a Phantom 2 V+ last year I'd eventually crash it.

And today was the day. My first crack-em-up!




Fortunately, it was just a street sign, and it hit about 2' off the ground. Nice thick grass under it. Battery was ejected, and the video was lost. But I had another full set of props on hand and was able to continue shooting for the rest of the day. The gimble got knocked about 8° off level, but that's correctable in post.

That's on the schedule for tomorrow. As well as a trip to the Candy Store to buy more props.

I believe,
If you plug battery back in, turn it on, it will restore your video!
You might get lucky? Sorry to hear about your crash, that ****
" MURPHY " strikes again! At least it was a small one, could have been worse! Good show, if all you lost was a couple props! Carry on my friend, Take care, Fly safe!

My run-in with a tree snapped a half inch off both sides of one prop, and I never even noticed, it just adjusted itself and kept flying.
Only found out once that battery was finished. And mine were 9450's.
