    I rushed a mission and fortunately got the drone back out of the top of a tree with some accurate shooting of the limb it was stuck on. The branch was stuck in the camera mount and helped slow the fall of the P3. It landed squarely on its back on soft wet dirt so changed the props and was flying again. Lesson learnt.
    Take your time and plan the mission.

    So close to making it. But at least you escaped unharmed.

    That's Great :)
    I'd still toss the props just because.
