Very well done.... Yeppers that was a bit too close LOL!

Any damage? It didn't look like terribly hard impact ..... hopefully not :)

Nothing at all, these babies are modular and built to crash. Often times you just replace a propeller (about $1) and put it right back in the air

If you're curious I have a bunch of crash footage on this video. It starts in my goggles, showing what I actually see when I fly, then it switches to HD. This includes shattered Gopro lenses and one epic crash into a pond. Amazingly, on a $450 dollar rig I only lost the flight controller and speed controllers, which is about $100. The motors and even the camera worked after spending a night underwater :)
