Flew the drone with my schools engineering club today. Practicing some faster turns in ATTI mode and medium winds...and I flew right into the only tree around us. Luckily the bird was only 2 meters off the ground when it dove into the branches. Also lucky that it's Winter and the branches were bare. Also lucky that I was able to run over and grab it out of the tree w/o any hassle. Unlucky that I didn't successfully disengage the motors before putting the RC down. Lucky that the engineering club president was able to follow my "IN AND DOWN" thumb stick instruction. This led to me reminiscing about Enrique Englasias unsuccessful i1 hand catch. One motor failed to operate. Quick on/off reset brought everything back 100%.

I had my first crash today and it was completely successful.
 
I had a "successful" crash when I lost my inspire in the ocean.
Great insurance meant full payout... And I was even able to sell off the bits I had left and made a small profit...
