After a few flights now, got a bit too cocky with a landing. Tried to land on theYuneec backpack instead of the rocky ground from where I was flying. Just as I put it down on the case the wind pushed it off and into the rocks. Luckily only lost one blade. Took it back to the cottage and flew it a couple of more times from the garden and all seems to be working fine. Phew. Will buy some more blades next month!
Apart from that I was sensible - flight checks done; kept an eye out for people - there were a few watching but they got bored waiting for the initiation process! Made sure nothing like telephone lines etc were around; checked blades, arms etc. Took off well; nice and easy and it was only when I was in the air did I realise landing was going to be tricky! Won't do that again. Will purchase a landing pad from Amazon - silly but will make sure I land on a flat surface.
Have to admit to being extremely nervous flying above the sea! Shaking like a leaf. I need to calm down - it was great conditions, low wind and sunshine. This is the furthest and highest I sent it out - still not very far yet though!
Coverack beach is just outside a military no fly zone - according to noflyzone.com ...only just! So was careful which direction I flew i.e. out to sea rather than in land.
Looking forward to practicing more in our local park.
