Note to self.... self, wear your glasses.

Went for a evening flight to take some photos and during landing I though the AC was pointing away from me and I drifted it into the side of our gazebo. Oops. 3 chipped props and a few character marks on the tail from when it dropped about 5-ft to the deck. 4th prop was a little scuffed up so I replaced all 4 and gave it a 1/2 battery test flight a few feet off the grass. All good. The landing light is bright!
 
Cameras on the side should prevent this collision, did you disable it?

As @impetus_maximus said, They only work in tripod mode when flying by stick. You also have to have enough ambient light for them to work.

Side cameras also operate in ActiveTrack mode, though that's out of the scope of this discussion.
Sensors might not work properly in low light.

I love your 'character marks' comment.
