That’s a big Damnitman!!! Was going to post some Drone footage but no... a light gust of wind blows up just before take off and tilted the take off..
Copter caught the edge of the truck bed and knocked one prop half off.... was trying to keep it in the air but could not recover fast enough. .
Gonna be a drone mechanic tomorrow...
