2 years!. 1 incident that was not my fault. Long story short I took off in the woods and flew to a field. It lost it's mind after a faulty firmware update and rocketed back to where it took off and hit an oak tree at full tilt. I have never seen so much plastic fly.Phantom 1 only please.
Have you been flying a long time without a crash or incident? Who has bragging rights?
Post your experience.
What's the point?Whats the point? My thought is if you don't crash your not doing it right. How are you going to learn? I can't think of an outing that I didn't have at lest a tip-over. It's the reason I am in the hobby is to fly crash, fix, and fly some more. Live a little, flip it over to manual mode, see how good you really are. How else are you going find out that doing a half loop is not a good idea or how are you going to get it out of that tree that is stuck 60' up. I have had my bird (P1) for 2 years now. I have had a lot fun and learned a whole more than I ever thought I would ever know by flying and hanging out on this forum with you guys.
I love stories like this. Excellent.Had my P2 for 18 months. Only had one incident a few days after i bought it i flew atti mode into a tree. Luckily no damage & totally my fault. Since then over a year of incident free flying. No hiccups with the P2. It always behaves (touching wood).
