Yup, @$%! happens
Just walking my drone up the street when the batteries in the controller gave out. Yes I know, I should have been watching levels instead of the drone, but who doesn’t watch their drone???
Anyway, the controller is now dead and the drone does not respond to emergency power-down commands. The quad had automatically switched into “Return To Home” mode. Unfortunately the take-off point was down the block.
Injury was smaller than a paper cut but the force the bushless motor spinning the rotor felt like getting whacked with a golf club
