    I was doing a panoramic shots from like 150 meters and then I started descending slowly.


    At the point where phantom was at around 20-30 meters it started falling fast (lke 6 seconds to the ground).


    First I thought it will crash apart but it landed on legs and bounced a little (motors were on all the time).


    Bettery slided off like 1mm after that crash but it was still charged.


    I also found out that 2 props were so loose that I could remove them witout rotating! How could that happened? If I would not placed them properly then I would not be able to do 10 minutes of flight. Did they loosen because of that hard landing? Then why only 2 of them? (the silver ones).


    And one of them was like that:

    I had a very similiar crash before: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9687&p=82636#p82636




    I wont trust anymore to those ,,self tightening" propellers and I am going to buy carbon ones wit this:

    I do like instruction and video says: Put them on that just rotate them fast and they go to the point when they stop rotating.

    But I think that some forces could loose them and they are not tighten anymore...
