    I had a blast.
    I got a Hubsan 501 and didn't realize the manual that is included in the box has about half the needed information. The rest is a pdf you can find online. D'oh

    So I did not realize that hitting RTH would cause the drone to lift or descend to about 20 feet and then RTH.
    When I saw it launch skyward I panicked; I had been hovering at 5 feet at the time. I shut the transmitter down which causes it to descend and land and then power off.

    But not before taking a header into a rubbermaid tool shed in the yard. A scuff on the top and three damaged props.

    The earlier foray had me skidding into as roll of chicken wire, it suffered no damage with that one.

    I am used to a one touch take off and one touch land so this was new to me. What a great time.
    Needless to say I ordered a bunch of replacement propellers.
