Had my first crash. It was pretty bad too. Was on my final battery of the day, filming some fast non-gps runs for you guys, when I thought it would be cool to get down low and get some fast gound video. BAD idea. I found out in non-gps mode, that balloon like lift does not exist. Instead, the H tends to suck "down" at fast speeds. So, before I knew what had happened, she hit the grass at 40+ mph. I thought she would have exploded from such an impact. When I got up to the H, only one arm was bent down, two props broken, the camera/gimbal came off, but that was good and the sd card ejected. It should have been so much worse. Oh, the landing gear was a little "off" but when I raised and lowered it, it went right back to normal, no damage there. I found the sd card but the crash footage wasn't there as it was ejected and not closed properly. Oh one of the arm closing metal clips broke as well, that's why the one arm was just hanging there. I called Yuneec, they suggested I try and repair it myself since int's not so bad. Which I'm going to do. Now I have to order some parts. The only place I've found so far is Vertigo Drones. Anyone know of these guys?
