DJI Phantom 4 drone crash
Today I’m going to tell you a little story about a DJI Phantom 4 drone crash which happened a couple weeks ago, in Järvsö Bergscykel Park. Why would you want to see a DJI Phantom 4 drone crash? Well, first of all it was me flying it, second it was my first time day ever flying a drone and third…. drone crashes look pretty cool.
It all started with me being asked to help out filming some short sequences for a downhill mountainbike shoot, and of course I said yes. The only problem was that I do not own a drone, nor had I ever flown one. But the same day as the shoot I borrowed one and began learning how to fly, it was much easier than I thought to be honest. Sure, it was scary at first, and it still is actually, but it was not hard at allt. So, first day flying, that’s when the DJI Phantom 4 drone crash happened, on top of a mountain and it got stuck up in a tree…
Here’s the video from the day, and you can also see the footage of my first ever flying:
I think I did an OK job for being the first time, don’t you think? 🙂
I was standing on top of the mountain in Järvsö Bergscykel Park, waiting for my turn to film with the drone, the wind started to pick up and I was getting more and more nervous. I had done some test fly-by’s and it worked perfectly, but as soon it was go time, I would say it was windy outside.
I started flying, following a downhill ride, it looked so good, so perfect and then it happened…. The wind picked up the drone and drew it close and closer to a tree….. and BOOM. There it was, stuck 6 meters up in a tree on top of a mountain… Luckily a friend of mine offered to climb up and get it, and you know what? The drone survived.
I kept on flying the rest of the day, and even tho I was close to crashing one or two more time, I kept my balance and managed to film quite a bit.
It would mean the world to me if you would want to subscribe to me on Youtube, I will share more drone shots there.
