Parrot Anafi maiden flight was this luck or not?

#1

Decided to take Anafi on its first flight having owned it for a month so decided on using flight plan around the local raceway, first I set altitude at 100 feet instead of 100 mtrs one minute into flight just when I realised this is too low it hit a tree signal lost with no control, I saw the collision on screen and nothing after that so after a lot of swearing and accepted the fact my new Anafi was now history 4 minutes later I could hear the hum of the bird and it came home safely anyway I could not believe my luck after viewing footage how it missed those power lines I just don’t know.

Was this a waypoint mission?

I’d recommend you fly LOS for the next flight lol, nearly hit that tree on the way back!

Yes it was flight plan, the settings were imperial I thought I was setting waypoints at 100m when in fact they were 100ft I was very lucky to get it back in one piece
