    Hi all, my crash down to pilot error, I was just too darn low! as I approached the reeds, a bird flew up behind me (frightened by me I guess), I took my eye off the P2, looked quickly back and my aircraft instinct kicked in as I approached the reeds and I pulled back on the elevator, which was throttle back on the P2 TX and in I went, I felt like I lost a family member!

    Anyway here is the of the crash, we used my mates P2 to search the island, managed to locate it and surfed to it and retrieved it!

    That was probably more fun to watch than experience it.
    You had to think about what was the cause of the crash, for a while look like you wanted to climb than suddenly sank.
    So what happened?
    The extra recovery footage was great.

    Cool video.

    Should you spend some time in a drone simulator now. That's funny, pulling back on the stick. Hope I never do that, but will share if I do. :lol:
