    Just had my first scary moment with my new P3. Showing it to a friend who also ordered one, I hit a tree with landing. I switched off the motors and it fell down right into my friends hands. No damage what so ever.
    A little bit of wind and a steering mistake.....
    Time to take our chainsaw and cut some trees down :)

    Save the tree, practice with plenty of room for mistakes and learning from them. Otherwise the tree will be more than happy to ruin your day. Wide open spaces until you have a firm grip on maneuvering the bird, is a must. Happy flights!
