Drone videos of some epic fails and drone crashes while flying.

Anyone who has ever flown a multicopter will know that not every flight ends in a soft landing. Quadcopter pilots can often run into problems when flying. Be that, wild animals, unexpected obstacles like mountains, trees, power lines, tall buildings, other flying craft, drones loosing signal and flying away, and even more sinister sounding phenomena such as “the flip of death”, a somewhat common occurrence on the DJI s800 hex-rotor.

Whatever the reason that causes a drone to go down, one thing they almost always have in common is great aerial footage of the crashes! Usually this is provided in High definition Go Pro videos.

This is why we decided to compile some of the most extreme and entertaining of these drone crashes to the back track of Queens – Another one bites the dust, a highly appropriate song in our opinion.

This is a compilation of multirotor crashes and hard landings. Thankfully no one was injured in any of the footage that we used in this compilation (we can’t say the same for the drones and quads featured in the video)

Making aerial videos is always going to be a risk, as flying anything from a paper plane to a Boeing 747 comes with a chance of failure. Usually we only get to see the finished product of an aerial video, be that a fast paced FPV drone race star wars pod style in a parking lot or forest clip or a cinematic video shot by a DJI Phantom or Inspire, but in this drone video compilation there are only the epic fails and crashes!

Remember to fly your Radio control craft responsibly and safely at all times, and always ensure you have planned your flight, and have a backup in case of an emergency landing.

Thank you to all the pilots who made this video possible.

R.I.P to all the Quads and Multirotors that never made a full recovery.

  1. The drones should know to not overdue themselves when moving to the point that they flip. That's something the company should fix, unless maybe high wind speeds are present

  2. Did the drones had to be recovered in order to preserve this footage or there is a way to remotely safeguard the footage? Thanks

  3. lol All most as good as watch fools crashing jeeps. not knowing they only sold the name and keep the planes. and how much did you pay for that to crash and die? hahaha

  4. moi j ai filmé le crash de mon drone vu de l'interieure et vu de l'exterieur"la patte du chien"

  5. a lot of phantoms in this vid. I just bought one. You'll never find me in a crash vid . Its too easy and I'm too careful. I've also flown helicopters for years.
