Sorry for your loss, OA will not detect wires and small tree branches, and I never rely on it anyway.If OA saves the day, it is a bonus. Same goes for RTH, I never use it as a means to fly home, only for signal loss/smart battery etc.
I am sure you checked your flight area first, but personally I avoid any area with cables or overhead wires. It is very difficult to visually determine your distance from these obstacles.

Is this really the thread for cut/paste welcomes?
I've always found them a bit annoying and impersonal. "Oh a few new replies to that thread I was interested in, I'll check it out." Click it to find the only new replies are the same cut/paste responses I've seen 1000 times. I could probably quote them verbatim if I was drunk because I've seen them so many times lol.

Now THAT's funny.

Ohh.... and sorry to hear about your crash.

I use a cell phone so I don't have to worry about those pesky telephone lines. You might consider it.

And video EVERY flight, then upload all your crash footage here for free Mavic apparel.

Welcome to Mavic Pilots! :)

Collided with telephone wire and dropped to the pavement. I thought I was to careful to crash. Guess not.
Yes, telephone wires can be tricky since it's hard (and often impossible) to see them on a mobile device screen. I try to scout out my flying areas as much as possible before sending my Mavic up into the air. And it of course helps if flying VLOS.

Well it's in Introductions and staff have so many to welcome ,yes it is . I have way more forums than just this one to work MrsTreat .I am afraid I can't answer each one differently .
Oh...you didn't welcome our new member .:)

Then maybe stop looking in Intro's if you if you find it annoying .

Yes, I do use a pre-made welcome. I also add some things on occasion. I am an administrator on all 12 of our forums so you can imagine the amount of time it would take for me to give each new member a personalized message. I would like to, but it just isn't feasible. I can only hope my "copy&paste" makes new members feel welcome.

I guess I could change it. :D What do you guys think of this...

That is nice. I think that would be better than a typed post that makes it look like you are in the thread to visit, when you really are not.

You 2 should go out and get drunk together. Leave the new members alone. They are all welcome here and your posts are off topic.
