Sorry to see that happen.

A couple of things, your flying area is flawed, too many cars and poles, your flying way to slow to be that high off the ground, get higher and keep the speed above stall.

Everyone crashes, just make make sure that's it's your stuff that's broke, not someone elses stuff (car/house/body/kids).

The audio on the camera makes it seem as if there may have been a bit more wind than would have been desired...of course I have seen audio be quite misleading in this area a few times. However you may choose not to fly in too windy a condition. The soccer field definately sounds like a better option. Less for you to watch is always better.

On a more positive note it seems to have held up quite well for what appeared to be a forceful impact, few parts and some glue should have you set.
