    Hello folks,

    Hope you guys have a great time with your drones.. Today wasnt for me.. The judgement day has come. I went out out for a flight, not much wind at all. It was my poor judgement.. I was flying under neath 2 bridges. As I flown by, I thought I cleared the clearance... Boy I was mile ahead wrong. From where I was standing is hard to judge. Oh well......With out further ado.. Here is the footage.

    Crap, that sucks! Love that you listed the purchase & death date in your remembrance video.

    I hate to say this with the release of the Phantom 4 but I could see overhead accidents being a common accident. The P4 may rise to follow a person or avoid an object when left to its own programming but it's blind to what's above or side. I'm guessing the P5 or P6 will have some form of 360 avoidance sensor which will be amazing... until of course us crazy pilots turn it off because it's messing up our flight inside the local McDonalds. :)

    100% I agreed. The Phantom 4 only detect forward, not over head clearance. It need 360deg avoidance :) I just ordered the Advanced, If i crash the Adv model, then I will get the Pro. If I F up the Pro, then P4 :)

    Sorry for your lost. I'm guessing it was los all the way? I think goggles would have helped you see things better. But yep that is hard to watch. I could feel you were still to close. Yikes !!!!! I guess you wanted the new p4

    Don't think googles would have helped at all. He ascended up into the bridge. Would love to see a radar sphere on these to let you know how close you are
