    This time around it's Bad Flying.

    I know it sure does suck to have bad luck at anytime. This little episode happened to me because I feel like I had taken launching my P2V for granted. I had changed my transmitter settings to something I had never tried before, and at 4ft off the ground I noticed my P2V began drifting towards my house while picking up speed. As you can see I panicked and caused the copter to spin in a 360 degree circle and then cleared the bottom of the roof line at the same time a gust of wind finish drifting into the roof, and finally flipping. It broke a blade and scuffed two others up enough that I replaced them all.

    So now I no longer launch from the sidewalk next to my house. Oh...and yes we finally have the new house ready for you.

    Added some Prop Guards the other day and I'm really surprised at the differences in the P2V's personality now. Yeah it has slower reactions, and the slowness is really noticeable when climbing in altitude. But overall I do like the guards better then I thought I would.
