Super scary. Those big drones should not be operated around people, even in a professional sports context.
More details here
Didn't even get it's retracts down..
I'm sure this is only the beginning of these types of videos. Glad no one was hurt. Interested to hear the backstory/details about what happened from the UAV system point of view.
My bet is he's flying DJI and the IMU failed....
I would put money on it :-)
I have contacted FIS Switzerland to get technical information on the drone flown.
You are welcome to join Peer To Drone Accident Investigation Project (limited to small drones) to ivestigate that drone accident on-line and in public.
Automatic Parachute System - opens when -neg vertical velocity is greater than X m/s?
A copter that's filming isn't going to be high enough for a parachute to make any difference at all. A cable cam might be a better way to get such footage.
He wasn't even supposed to fly there - he had a dedicated (safe) corridor which he ignored after a few runs
Lucky escape. I guess he was skying just fats enough ;-)
Good argument to push development of high video quality delivered by small and light copters but also a reminder to be sensible and not to fly over people!
that's why you need a helmet
I'd like to know what system that was. Airframe and Flight Control. Anybody know?@Ben: I don't think retracts would have helped. ;)That was obviously a critical system failure of some sort, or he hit an overhead wire. Or put it in Rate Mode by accident...
