    **** Momentum!

    I was out at a local park doing close quarter maneuvers about 4 feet off the ground. I thought for sure I was going to miss that **** tree. Even thought it might just cut it's way through. But it broke a prop and fell 4 ft. to the ground and popped the head of the gimbal off.

    How much is a new gimbal? $600!

    ****.

    if you plan to do the manuvir, you do not have to carry a camera that expensive. there is something cheaper for your practice, I am sure
