    I have to admit, I never thot I'd see the day when my P2V would see it's last flight but it nearly happened last week while I was visiting my father in Pheonix, Arizona. You gotta see this. If you ever have an experience when your quad is falling and you still have power, just give it full throttle and it will right itself.

    At 17 floors above concrete, I hit the ceiling of an overhand, causing the quad to steer into the rail and pillar. Tumbling out of control, I had 2 seconds to think how I was going to recover from this. Six floor above the concrete, I recovered with only the tips of two blades slightly worn.

    All I could envision in a split second was a pile of parts on the concrete below.

    Hope you all like it. Let me know what you think.

    Glad you recovered .. but man that seems too close to be flying to a human ..looks like that happen just above your pops head .

    I have seen (unfortunately) those blades slice through a usb cable instantly scared the bejesus out of me as i was about to grab the one prop causing me grief ..

    Thanks for sharing

    I seems closer than it looks, but yes, it should have been further out. What a trip.
