    That was pretty stupid,, flew my Drone about 2000 meters away, activate RTH drone was on it's way back at about 200 meters high, so as it got closer I clicked down throttle to start descending to save time. Was looking to find it in the sky, then saw a white spot where he was supposed to be,,, turns out it was a white bird (real bird) my bird was to the right of me,, but I was sure I was looking at my Drone and did not look at telemetry. Drone flew straight in the ground, my friend saw it hit. Luckily the drone regained control right away and stayed airborne. Suffered minimum damage, just some scratches on one arm and barely any scratches on one propeller,,, fiou.. Lesson learned,, make sure your looking at your drone and not birds and keep an eye on your telemetry.. ;)
