    Yeah I saw it earlier. One in a million chance of that happening :)

    The bloke was lucky, it could've been much, much worse.

    Wow that brick smoke stack rising above the 20 meter path on RTH command was the ONLY tall structure in the path and Murphy's Law, BAMM! It found it.

    Yes you see the quad was still in power and props turning, it was cutting grass as the man was handling it. He was the only lucky one here.

    I missed the San Jacinto Monument by about 10 feet. The P2V went behind the monument and it cut the control signal so it started coming home. Luckily I was about 10 feet higher than the overall structure. I was pretty freaked out because the park rangers were all sitting around watching and talking to my dad while I was flying. I don't even think they knew I had such a close call and I played it cool.

    I'll put the video up later if anyone wants to see it.

    Please do. Any problems from the park personnel flying there? Did you fly over the battleship? I've been wanting to do that.

    No problems from park officials. Yes I went all around the battleship.

    Amazing enough i was flying my P2V and hit the 310 Ft stack on my project about 60 ft down from the top and caught it before it crashed! Check out the link.
