    Great shot!
    Typhoon, eh, I thought the Typhoons advantage over a quad, is they continue to fly even with one prop/motor down?

    I've seen "Test" videos where it could "sort of" fly (enough to come down possibly safely) with 4 of 6 but we don't know what other damage was done from the golf ball impact. Might have been more than just snapping off a motor arm.

    It's kind of like standing in front of a car telling the driver to "ease forward". If you value your life, you don't stand in front of the car! Same with reverse. It's not a bad idea for the shot, I just would have been slightly off the side in case the girl got lucky, which she did.

    She has a very good swing. Dad can bet on a likely college scholarship (thus a new drone)
