That's not a very good feeling when you think you have caused some kind of major issue with the quad.

I wonder what the look on your face would have been had someone told you all 3 of the non turning motors will need the body separated and new ones installed. :eek:

Good sport for sharing...... however, just four letters to takeaway from this.

Yeah what do we all think when it happens do we think money cost of the thing or damage to other things or phantom or do we think safety and who could have been hurt had it went very wrong
Safety comes first with me then the dread of what damage has been done

A woman I work with told me that when her husband got the Phantom 2 he unboxed it without reading the manual and turned it on. Somehow it took off in the house, he grabbed for it and cut himself very badly.

Not me in the video. Found it on YouTube and thought would post it. It was the part when he puts his hand out as it came towards him that could have been painful. The guy got lucky.
