    It was windy, he landed. The wind blew the Phantom over and he had to catch it. When he tried to grab it to turn it upright, Elise ran out of the house with a knife and cut his arm.
    I think.

    It is called a CSC (combination stick command) pull both sticks to the bottom center, so left stick to the bottom and to the right, at the same time, right stick to the bottom and the left. This will kill the motors immediately. And welcome to the list!

    Tnx bro...
    I have seen that way of shuting it... but that didn't come to my head in that moment because I use left stick down to shut it down... but when it is fliped it doesn't work...
    Propeller Guard is on the way... ;)

    It is also pretty common in those "oh sh!t" moments to forget what to do - I know I have.
    I suggest practicing the maneuver a few times with your props off just so you start to build muscle memory and wire your brain for the move - that way when you need to do, you'll be able to immediately execute the move.
    Have fun!

    Glad you didn't have to get stitched. We all panic at time when we think we're losing her or she's going to break if I don't do something fast. A lot of us have been there and done that. So don't feal bad!
