Drones are fascinating devices, allowing us to capture footage from unique angles and see the world from a different perspective. But they can also be quite temperamental.
They don’t like to go for a dip and they need sufficient power to keep them flying for an extended period of time. Of course, the possibility that a drone could start falling from the sky because it runs out of power and go for a swim can result in fairly dramatic footage…as the below video shows.
Zwier Spanjer spent the day flying his new DJI Phantom 2 without any problems. And then disaster struck as the battery depleted. The drone started losing altitude and headed straight for a pond. With the prospect of losing his drone looming, Spanjer did what any concerned tech owner would do and waded across the pond, catching his drone just in time. Let’s hope he didn’t leave a smartphone in his pocket.
