    Same thing happened to me during an POI Flight. I was paying too much attention to the iPad. Luckily I was only doing 2.2 mph and I hit a giant pine tree which brought me gently to the ground. No damage. Phew. Hope you were as lucky

    Until Dji adds the object avoidance capability, you have to fly above any trees and power lines when in follow me mode.

    There looks to be a huge clear area ahead. Why would you take off in amongst trees? That's just asking for trouble

    Those pesky trees are waiting to jump out in front and have their picture taken.
