Two and a half years flying my Cinestar 8 and today marks the first damage done to it, and I got very lucky. Simple test flight in the backyard, flipped from Free to Ph and went one click too far and into Come Home, which isn't currently tuned on this copter. CH sent it straight up and into a tree at about 40 feet, I flipped out of CH got the power down but the branch flipped the copter and couldn't right it before hitting the ground. My yard is soft, currently really moist dirt, the CS landed on boom 3 and 4 snapping an APC prop and one boom. There was no gimbal on the copter! Whew! I've always said it was inevitable that it would happen. I've had ESCs die while flying, and other "land immediately scenarios" but no crashes. Glad I was baptized so inexpensively! I think I'm going to look into programming PH and CH onto different switches so that can't happen accidentally again.
