    LOL, you certainly were pushing the 'ole bird !! :D
    Did you notice video issues when flying behind the building etc?

    Around that area the only issues are when I go directly behind the building (which is why you see me climb) but I've started to just fly through a bit of breakup if I know the area.

    Also a small breakup whenever I fly directly in line with the big tree I sit beside at the top of the hill, but it's never for very long at that speed of flying lol.

    Holy crap dude!
    That is totally insane! You got a money tree or something ? Lol
    Just kidding, but that is crazy insane! The destroyed prop caused me
    To laugh histericaly, I felt a bit sorry for it, but the best part is I found myself leaning back and forth ( physically ) while watching video, that is crazy! But fun all the same ! Thanks for the laugh! And Remember:
    FLY IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT! lol

    I was a bit hesitant to watch at first knowing what I am going to see :) Awesome and brave flying!

    Ahahah no money tree I'm afraid, I've just watching too many blackout quad videos I think. I always find myself physically leaning while flying as well as watching the videos lol, good thing I'm sitting down or I'm pretty sure I would have fallen over by now.

    Fly it like you stole it, that should be my new tag line :)
