  1. Hello, looking forward to many years of learning about the drone and uav world.
  2. Bought my first p4 a month ago and with about 20hrs of flight time I decided to try out the sport mode yesterday behind my dads house. While flying in an open field about 9 acres with a tree line around it I started trying multiple maneuvers and as it went zipping by me at around 45mph the breaking and reaction time is greatly decreased and only recommended for experienced pilots. While trying to climb to avoid a tree, well let me tell you I wont be using the sport mode until I get quite a few more hours of flight time. As my dad was yelling pull up it hit the tree at max speed. Minimal damage falling out of the top of the tree from 100ft up it broke two rotor blades and popped the access panel off the landing gear. The battery also came out on impact. After recovering my p4 I replaced the blades and was thinking the worst. I turned it back on and it give me a green light to fly. It now has a small dent in the outer shell but still seemed to work ok. Very durable. I've got some of the best pictures from my p4 that just blows everyone's minds. Would recommend to anyone that is starting out in the drone/uav world. Thanks Jeremy
