If you can walk away from a landing, it's a good landing

I was feeling fairly confident this morning, so figured I'd be OK to practice with the drone in front of the house this morning. I posted this for you Sidd \:D/

No harm done, it’s a pretty solid device! I shouldn’t have taken it out so close to the house because the wind was a little gusty.

A tough learning experience. I feel your pain. Glad there was no damage.

Ed: This thing is not gonna crash is it? I wanna open her up a bit...

Control: Please proceed with caution just do not get too close to the house.

Ed: The house??? yeah I can get a bit closer no worries. Let me adjust the joystick.

Control: Please do not do that you might just..............

Ed: Awww S*&%

I was going to use my drone to inspect the roof for problems, but I see that may not be such a good idea. Thank you for the warning.

I wouldn't have posted it Sidd if I had broken the drone :)

I did this to check my gutters RJ, which luckily are clean. Don't let my bad flying guide you.
