Yeah, it tends to be a little more wobbly while hovering over water sometimes. Got a little close but pulled away just in time. It's hard to see some obstacles on your smart phone screen until the last second, especially small branches. No harm done.at 0:19 I cringed a little when you were strafing left really close toward the trees. I've crashed many a times by doing that, and almost lost my bird a couple of times because of it.
Point illustrated well. Plus repeated attempts at takeoff w/o damage assessment risked giving the drone a bath in the creek/ water drainage channel. If you crash, just go get the bird.LMAO! Some sketchy flying there. Moving in towards those trees like that blindly, well....Here is a video showing why you DONT lol. You can skip to about the 2:30 mark and see for yourself On a lighter note..I probably tried the bridge myself. I mean what fun is it if there is no risk involved right ??? Fly safe my friend.
There was nothing good about that day. The intent was to see if i could fly under the freeway to take pictures of the graffiti there. I was rushed and not thinking straight. I had video faults from the tablet I was using, it was just after a storm so the water was high and being in a hurry just to get a shot was all a recipe for disaster. That tree I hit I knew was there but making another mistake and turning right instead of left didnt allow me to see it on the video feed. Taking off again was in pure panic to see if I could get it airborn just enough to get it away from the water. When it hit the ground I thought I was in the stream and getting washed away. Bottom line is I KNEW I shouldn't have been flying that day but I did and you can see the outcome. The whole Crashes video has good lessons on what NOT to do. Should be a training video for new pilots LOL I'll be flying that same spot again this week but I have plently of time to get it right and my son will be spotting for me.Point illustrated well. Plus repeated attempts at takeoff w/o damage assessment risked giving the drone a bath in the creek/ water drainage channel. If you crash, just go get the bird.
