    Lost a prop guard the other day -- literally no idea, the flight was fine and Casper comes back minus the one guard! I didn't run into anything, the little plastic clip broke off - musta been windy up there I'm guessing.

    Anyway, already bought a replacement set (ugh, couldn't get just one, of course) a month ago ... tonight I'm going through some old video of me teaching myself POI going around a tree in the backyard ... and suddenly ... what have we here? :) vlcsnap-2016-09-01-22h36m52s681b.png
    I feel warm and fuzzy inside ;)

    Evil tree is just using it as bait. Trying to get the drone to come back for it, then it will eat the drone.

    The angle of the photo doesn't reveal that that thing is about 35 feet of the ground, I can't reach it. I'm going to make a small hook and strong to my P4 and go fishing...

    This could end well or very poorly lol
