15 Unlucky Drones That Crashed Into Buildings.Watch Videos

Drones are great fun to fly but when obstacles get in the way, your landing might not always be a pleasant one.

Skyscrapers and other buildings that jut up into a drone’s natural domain remain one of a quadcopters most dangerous enemies. Here are 15 examples.From PM.

Drone vs. Building

When the quadcopter flies up to high and loses signal, it typically enters “return to home” mode and autopilot takes over. This is far better than just falling out of the sky, but it can be a problem when there’s something like a building in the way. Observe!

Drone vs. Skyscraper (x2)

Sometimes, it will even hit a building in the way, twice.

Drone vs. Space Needle

This New Years Eve footage of a drone circling the Seattle Space Needle was great until the drone lost signal causing it to crash landed onto the top of the famous structure.

Drone vs. Dallas Skyline

If you get a new drone, you might want to check out its max altitude before Return to Home kicks in. Seems like advice this Dallas flier could have used.

Drone vs. Wind

 

Unlike a helicopter or plane, it’s easy for a lightweight drone to fall victim to high winds. Not only did this drone get wrecked but some gusts, but so did the Go Pro Hero 4 attached to it.

Drone vs. Skyscraper (x2, again!)

When this drone goes out of sight and attempts to return home, it crashes almost full speed into a wall. Then after it recovers it crashes one more time. It just can’t get enough.
