    This is what happens when you ignore the red led flashing of low battery.

    I usually have wire ties on going thru my camera vibration balls, but I forgot to put them back on after removing the gimbal to update the firmware this morning.

    Direct impact to the bottom of landing gear, the zenmuse popped off the rubber balls and was laying next to the Phantom. My Garmin GTU-10 flew about 25 feet after impact (you can actually see me following it in the air after the crash).

    Good news is that I put everything back together (added the wire ties) and the Phantom is fine.
    I’m impressed how durable this thing is.

    Video is from my security camera

    I see you are back from suspension. Keep your bags packed, your going on another trip.
