    Hi.

    Today i crashed into a tree, and the drone was laying about 5 meters from the crash site. The only visible damage, was the props and a small crack in the upper-hull.

    I drove home, and the drone was not good at holding the position, drifted 10-15cm sideways, and same up and down. I calibrated the IMU, and now it still drifting round, but now i saw some shaking, specially after take-off.

    Anywhere who knows, what is gone wrong ?

    Does it already shake on the ground?
    Ps. What caused the crash in the first place (besides the tree ;))?

    Nope, it starts shaking right after it leaves the ground.

    And i could say weather, sun or anything in that direction, but the most honest answer, must be - my miscalculation of skills and space to the tree :D

    The relevance is that he could still purchase the coverage and be covered the next time a tree jumps out in front of his drone. Thanks!

    Ah...sorry, we don't cover Europe yet. I should have looked at your location before posting. If you know of a good repair shop in your area, please let me know. We would love to expand our coverage over there!

    Maybe you have a bent motor shaft.

    If you persist in dropping by every crash thread to advertise, it's going to look an awful lot like Spam.

    I agree that dropping in on every post about a crash would be very annoying and spammy. But, I don't do that. Although, I could because I am an approved vendor. Thanks!
