    Oh my god...I just got back from climbing over 3 fences into some poor persons back garden just to retrieve my pv2 whilst my Mrs and daughter stood there pissing themselves. I was flying on the way back from the park in a massive field when (ill blame her) my daughter took my attention for a second ....

    Too late .. as I pushed up on the stick it collided with a weeping willow making a horrific chopping sound then crashed onto their rockery only 15 feet away but behind 2 wire fences some barbed wire and a ditch...

    2 options leave it and write it off or call on my childhood garden hopping experiences and go for it.. I did the latter

    Muscles pulled and face scratched I got it home the camera had smashed off and it looked bad ...

    Amazingly and a credit to how well these things are made .... it's fine just needed putting back together and wiping down..

    I just thought you'd all like a giggle ...

    Survived for another day
