    Total pilot error - I let my H hit the edge of a house. Shattered 1 blade, half of another. I was amazed that the copter continued to fly! The motors where racing and the stability was off a little. But I was able to move it out to an open area in the yard and land quickly. The motor with the missing prop was extremely hot.

    I replaced the two blades, recalibrated everything and was back in the air, good as new!

    For what it's worth, I also have two DJI copters; I don't have to describe what happens when you lose a prop on a quad.

    Very please with the H.

    I knew it would fly on 5-1/2 blades, but 4-1/2 beats what I did. I got just a little too close to a "blinder" light for a concert stage while descending from higher outside to go inside. The H is a pretty good machine.
