    Decided to go to the local beach today and test the Litchi follow me and focus features.

    The app warns you to check your surroundings before flight. I thought. Meh it'll be good they are only small sand dunes.

    Took over an hour to get it out of the bush.

    Sorry but LOL :p Really, is it my impression or you got lucky with the P3 just kinda "soft-landing" on the bushes? I could be wrong but from the footage it could have been much worse...

    You should have used Guns and Roses,
    "Welcome to the Jungle" :)
    Seriously, I hope you didn't bruise your bird.

    Funny thing was I used a very long branch to knock it out of the tree and it fell about 10 meters from the tree onto the ground. Not a scratch.
