    Cool Monte ! I just love it when they just bounce back up and keep on going. ;)

    Me too although I try to keep it at a minimum. This is my newer Phantom with no prop guards. I was walking and just didn't see the tree in my way. I think the tree had a growth spurt and I flew over it. I could be wrong.

    Heres the flight before the tree thing. Anyone have any idea why I will get a vertical magenta line in the video. It seems to happen when facing the sun I think. It happens randomly and for a split second and not always in the same place on screen.
