Damage report after discovering what happens if you lose control during waypoints?

July 4, 2014

So I obviously jinxed myself by showing that video of my first crash from last year… I’ve just escaped from 90ft up a tree with ensuing plummet! How did it happen, what’s the damage and how much will it cost me?

SPOILER ALERT: Just one prop! Well done DJI, well done Rotorpixel – no other damage from a 90ft fall out of tree tops. Phew! Teach me to try and test too many things at once – waypoints, range, other things I can’t mention…

My “On the Kitchen Table” videos are mainly aimed at newcomers to multirotors, quadcopters, drones and UAVs, particularly to the DJI product range, and the Phantom line in particular. I have how to’s, product reviews, tips, tricks, hints and information for beginners and those in the early stages of the hobby. I film “on the kitchen table” to show people that, like me, you don’t need a workshop and an array of specialist equipment and years of experience to get started and progress with flying these amazing aircraft and enjoying making great aerial videos and stills. So if you have bought, or are thinking of buying, a DJI Phantom, Phantom FC40, Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ or Plus, or even building your own DJI Flamewheel F450 or F550, we can do it… on the kitchen table!
