No Guts No Glory

I altered the "Diving Case" for my GoPro Hero 5 Black so I could mount it closer to the quad, and resolve some wobble on the pitch axis due to the shifting CG (when mounted via Quick Release). However, it appears as if my front right motor has problems spinning up from no throttle, that may have been due to a piece of sand that caused it to get stuck previously (See "Spiraling Out of Control"), and ultimately the cause of the epic crash at the end.

Resulting Damage?
1. Destroyed the "Front Bumper" plastic that protects the front of the frame
2. Damaged the front lip of the base plate (carbon is starting to split), but with a new "Front Bumper" it might as well be cosmetic only.
3. Ripped the pads of my FC for the OSD/Camera Passthrough, as the VTX wasn't mounted the best (needs to have a right angle adapter on the antenna) and slammed into the FC during the crash.
4. All propellers shattered

Overall I am very happy with the durability of my Spedix Black Knight 250 thus far.

Notes: Normally I like to post/create longer videos, but I don't have any other usable footage from that day (recorded about 2 weeks ago, at the same time as "Bando Barracks").

Happy and safe flying!
