    Hi everybody. I put my first video up on YouTube - it's nothing special, just some scenes around my house and then a lift off to higher altitude.

    I also crashed this afternoon completely unpredictably. I took off and when I got up to about 20m it took off in one direction and ended up crashing about 100m away in a field. Damaged one of the arms of the main case slightly but still flying. Also had to spend an hour cleaning and removing dirt from one of the motors. No idea what happened as I immediately hit the failsafe but it did nothing for me. Battery compartment was open when it hit the ground but I couldn't tell if that had been the cause of the accident.

    Anyway - hopefully you like the video.

    Cheers - Damian.

    That's nice smooth footage, pretty scenery, and very nice music, too. You did a good job with it. Let us know if you figure out what caused the flyaway.
