Almost no damage. Took off flying from my back deck with what I thought was a light breeze to see how it'd handle that. I could hear all 4 motors changing speed and it kept pretty level, flew well buzzing around the trees. Then a gust came along and pushed it above the houses. I tried really hard, full throttle, to get it back but the wind above the houses was faster than full throttle fwd. From the height of a 2 story house I dumped it just so it wouldn't fly away. Hit the street. I didn't see how it hit but from the scratches on top of the props and I found it upside down I'd say it hit at an angle on the top.
This was the only damage, blew out a shaft bearing. I had a spare that was almost the same size (slightly taller) in my shop. Back flying 2 minutes later.
