Sub Drone
Sub

This is a DJI Phantom 3 Standard Drone. This is where I got most of my practice throughout the Chicago area.  As with any type of practice, sometimes you have failure. I was getting a little prideful in my skill and ability which caused me to fly a little too close to a tree over a Chicago area retention pond. When I hit the tree I powered up causing me to hit more tree and flip upside down causing the drone to turn into a submarine and sink straight to the bottom of the pond. Thus the name “Sub”.
