    Wanted to do some flying at my old high school today.
    First flight was nice.
    Second flight I wanted to do a low level tour around the building. Went off just fine.
    Got to point 2 just fine.
    About midway to point 3, the little red triangle stopped.
    ruh roh.
    Scurried off to find it. Luckily, it was easy to get to. The bird was laying upside down with the props still running.
    Then it shut down just as I got to it.
    The bird is fine but the camera wound up with a cracked lens.
    The video shows it flying along just fine then apparently the legs clip a small overhead cable And it tumbles down.
    Oh well.

    Probably just the UV filter lens that cracked. They're $38 to replace.
