Cheers Dragonfly Joe! Thank you for the encouragement.
obv' there's a whole backstory behind the garden... but yep, you are spot on about the crash site!
Spark just sat there blinking as I took it all in...
The descent speed was faster than normal but it stopped as normal when the Spark actually landed.
Moral of the story: always have a crash site of choice!
Cheers Rotorwash! Yep, experiment completed and the knowledge of actually doing it filed in the memory banks that is YouTube
Thank you for saying it was fun to watch! Tick! and thank you for helping my channel build by commenting on YouTube as well!
