It really made me draw up

LoL, I had something similar happen. I had just transitioned from forward flight to a hover and was about to set down when I lost a main blade.
Bounced off the gas grill and wadded itself up in a patio chair (yes, I was in my back yard
). Finally found the culprit blade 2 weeks later, about 75 yards away.
