    My first day I had a ground flip into mud, just wiped it off and flew on. Not documented though, ; )

    remember how long it took you to get it slow down and fly little more gently

    Cancel RTH and throttle up was not an option at 600 feet?

    You can tell it wasn't a bad crash , because the Camera is still attached . I found it doesn't take much to knock it off .

    GPS really does help with that.

    Well GPS keeps it from drifting into the trees.

    Doesn't keep one from drifting into gardens though. ;)

    The stability of the Phantom while using GPS is awesome. It really makes the aircraft MUCH easier to fly, it is not perfect and won't save you from yourself every time. If you are the throttle and a evil drone eating tree jumps out in front of you GPS doesn't stop you from hitting it.
