    OK, time to tell everyone your scary, "blood turns to ice" moments. e.g. when you lose sight of your quad, etc.
    THIS CAN INCLUDE ANY DRONE, not just the Phantom.

    Once upon a time, when I was 8 or so, I bought a cheap little RC Helicopter (Syma S107).
    On it's maiden flight, I gunned the throddle and it took off. Went 60ft in the air, as my blood ran cold, and then came crashing down in a street. Stuff went everywhere. The tail snapped and It was missing a tail-strut. I was pretty devastated. But there was a happy ending. I was able to glue the tail back in place. A few months later the tail rotor quit.
