    Today I flew my P2V straight down my road at about 10' altitude. At about 320' it just kind of flipped over on side and crashed. The only thing I can attribute this to is that I have a wireless driveway alarm transmitter in a tree about the height the phantom was at and about 50 feet farther down the road from the crash. Could this have caused the Phantom to go squirrely and crash?

    It sounds like you have a bad ESC and/or motor.

    I think mystery solved, it appears after looking at the video from the P2V that there was an errant twig sticking way out from a tree and I caught it.
