Like a fool yesterday, I had a belly full of beer and then decided to climb a ladder onto the roof (uh oh) and then attempted to fly my MP in the neighborhood.
I didn't get 20 feet before I got all tangled up in a pear tree's leafless branches that I couldnt see because it was at sunset...
It fell to the ground... About 15 feet up onto some (thankfully) plush grass...
It had a broken prop.. I replaced all 4, of course. Visually everything looked great and this morning at work I tried to fly it at 5 am and it seemed fine... I got a "not enough light" warning but that's to be expected.
I'll fly it this afternoon but I'm hoping everything is good. I've definitely learned my lesson.
Note to self: I need to fly with @OJsakila . Sound like he knows how to have fun.
I have considered flying the Mavic after throwing back a few , but thank goodness I get sidetracked easily and that has given me time to consider what could go wrong. I have ridden my electric skateboard at 22 MPH after imbibing. It was a blast and I have great balance so that helped matters.
