    If you are flying in a completely deserted flat area with one small tree a long way away, you will eventually fly into that tree.

    Never fails.

    OK, here's the Second Law of flying drones.

    If you are happily flying your drone and your wife is watching, you will invariably experience ....
    Lost GPS
    Inexplicable low battery warning
    Lost prop
    Lost WIFI signal
    Bird strike
    Flyaway
    All of the above

    first real rule is let your wife fly it , and remember this " happy wife happy life " maybe his and her drones now that would be something to worry about .

    I've also noticed these Q 500's are attracted to water!:D They seem drawn to water like a duck! And sooner or later they are going to end up "in the water"! Mine can't swim,so it avoids water like a cat! LOL!
