I shut the radio off so it would go failsafe (strait, no motor)before hitting ground. Hope it didn't damge anything. Called the local police to report the incident. Should have checked the video link there on a calmer day before flying fpv

Bad day
Very sorry to hear it, bad day for sure. I was looking forward to more video. Any idea why the video stopped? Sure hope someone finds it and turns it over to the authorities.
