FPV Speed Racer Quad - Hits a tree, breaks a prop and still makes it home

Hello All,

I was doing some more testing on my speed racer quad and ended up hitting a tree, breaking one of the props and it still make it home

The video has no stabilization and the vibration in the gopro does not actually show how much vibration was actually going on. My FPV cam was almost useless.

I always though that any flight control board could not handle that much vibration but the hoverfly sport didnt seem to mind the vibration, just the busted prop
