    That's awesome! I had something similar happen yesterday. I lost signal and video as I was flying around a decommission nuclear plant. Only after the signal and video came back did I see my P3A flying about 20 feet above the top of the cooling tower! Thankfully I was flying just a little over 400' (about 426' to be exact). I had it in RTH and it went right over the towers!

    What caused the damage? Hard to tell from watching the video.

    No contact-no damage. I couldn't see because of the reflection of the Sun. I never touched the gate with the craft which was really surprising.
