    Last Tuesday July 5th I was flying at Rock Park in Castle Rock, CO for about 15 minutes until I flew too close along the northern wall and hit it and fell about 30 feet or so. Was pretty bummed about it but before I even edited my main video about the Rock Park, I first edited together a funny drone fail video on the situation and wasn't so bummed lol. Here are the pictures after the crash, during repair, and after. Flight Ops Test video is uploading to YouTube right now. Here is the crash video link:

    Why Green if you ever do an emergency landing you'll step on it.

    A carbon fiber antivibration plate and metal retainer pins would have prevented any damage in that crash.
    You can get the pins from UAV BITS, you'll have to request by email the antivibration plate though.

    It's fluorescent green...I think I'll be able to distinguish between that and "grass green" lol
