Greetings, friends! Last time I wrote, several months ago, I had crashed my drone the first time I had it out and learned a lot about the drone the hard way. I bought replacement blades and was waiting to hear from Yuneec about how to buy the part to reattach the gimbal. I determined that I am never going to hear back from them so, months after my first flight, I attached the new blades to see if it would fly. It flew! I was in the park and decided that I would get to know this drone in order to avoid another accident like the one from before. So I was practicing take off and landing, moving it back & forth, etc. I never took it higher than between eye level and just above my head, and only flew in any direction about 10 feet. I managed to take off and land about four times when I must have accidentally triggered that feature when it flies circles around the controller. I saw it heading for a tree and even though obstacle avoidance was off, I wanted to move it in the opposite direction, away from the tree. It would not respond to any commands from the controller at first. Then I pushed the joystick down and the drone lowered while still moving forward. I didn't want it to hit the ground hard and roll, so I tried to kill the motor. The propellers would not stop spinning! The drone hit the ground and rolled and instead of shattering all six blades like last time, one of the feet of the landing gear broke off. If just doing the most basic moves trying to learn how to fly this thing is going to end like this, I don't even know what I'm supposed to do.
