    My first really bad crash. Trees and pavement are not good for the Phantom. I was careless and paid the price. Total pilot error.

    The damage could have been a lot worse. Details here: http://www.ambientflight.com/2014/06/07/bird-down/

    Need a new compass, new landing gear (already have), new plastic spacers for Arris CM3000 3-axis gimbal, new landing gear extensions, one new prop.

    Ouch! Gimbal plates look kind of shot, but other than that you're right, it seems like you can be back in the air pretty quickly!

    We've all been there ;)

    They always look alot worse than they actually are (initially) - As El G said we've all been there. Hope you get her airbourne soon.
