There’s a few reasons VLOS (Visual Line of Sight) is required flying, and one of them is the potential for a crash.
Yep, I crashed. Took my eye off Bird for a second while backing and rising from the back side of the house I grew up in. That’s all it took. Chaos ensued.
Bird is OK other than some cleanup from fresh spring leaf juice. The propellers may have been dinged too much for flying.
