This is the classic drone crash video and it has made me laugh so many times. Could you imagine filming a bride and groom and then flying your rig straight into their faces while they are having an intimate moment?
Not sure what caused this crash, but it seems like a short in the battery somewhere. The first crash happens around 35 seconds but they don't learn their lesson and a strange guy in a light blue shirt decides to become target practice for the next inevitable malfunction that happens around the 3 minute mark. I have watched this several times and I find myself wishing that copter would have landed on him.. the video probably would have gone viral with all that strange posing in the grass.
Drinking all day on a boat and then buzzing your Phantom above water would always seem like a good idea at the time. Unfortunately, they are not really waterproof. Don't drink and drone, it just won't end well. At least we got a funny video out of it. I would start watching at 4:45 mark.
This video starts out so cool. Pretty cliff, pretty green water, nice view but then it just goes haywire. The resulting drone crash is really more like 5 crashes in one as the phantom ping pongs down the cliff while the propless motors hopelessly try and correct the plunge back to earth. Stunning drone photography video turns into epic crash video.
This looks like it starts out as a foreign language review of the phantom. Then they take it for a jolly flight around to show off its flight abilities but the pilot obviously has not spent time on his drone drills. I would like to plug my RC drone drill book here because if this guy had followed my simple training exercises he would know how to fly when the aircraft is pointed at him. Instead he sends the Phantom drone into the pavement for a nice crash we all get to enjoy.
If you want a good faulty fly away Phantom video, it is hard to do better than this one. This drone goes haywire, comes in super low over the water and then bounces off the bank about 2 feet from the water and then the pilot is able to regain control before it goes haywire again and this time it doesn't bounce back into the air.
In the description, they claim it just lost control and went straight up but I seriously doubt that. They just wanted to send this thing above the clouds and that is always a terrible idea. Stay under 400 feet to avoid running into airplanes! These idiots deserved to crash in my opinion. It is people like this that will ruin the hobby for everyone.
His Phantom glitches out and then flies to the bottom of the lake. Luckily for us, the GoPro still works and it captures some fish.
Another crash from an insane altitude. Again, it is just not a good idea to fly this high. All it is going to take is one airplane strike and the FAA is going to clamp down on us really hard.
