    Not me, but I've read at least 3 posts on this forum where people said they had 5 motor flights for various reasons. And one poster even said he had two(yes 2) motors down and was able to return home. There are a couple of videos on YT as well. Knocking constantly on wood it doesn't happen to me....

    As I have mentioned in some other threads, I had a nasty crash testing non gps mode and flying too low. I hit the ground at 40mph, it hit on the front left motor/prop primarily and I lost that motor. The H flung itself back in the air about 10 feet and I was able to land it with little problem. Had this been a quad, it could have been a much worse outcome.
