    I became so enthralled with my flying, I forgot about the power line.. Saw it coming at the last second, and cut the throttle.. Copter dipped down, but I managed to recover at the last second, but I bet there wasn't a 16th of an inch left between my copter, and cartwheeling across the lawn.. Whew, that was close!! I lived to fly another day.. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv55xJ6oyKM

    But check it out.. I was flying at a full clip.. Yet: no left hook.. no skewing to the left.. Chalk up another one for turning the compass on the leg..
