    Hit some power lines.

    Damage report:
    1 propeller
    1 gimble cable
    2 2.4ghz wires
    1 gimble mounting plate

    Thinking I can just reconnect the wires. Has anyone done this?

    Yup did the same thing. 65 ft high and hit the wires. Quad came tumbling out of the ski. Battery popped out was all that happened. Still flying fine.
    My biggest problem was getting to the drone before a dog that was chasing it got there before me!
