FPV flight gone wrong, turned out special!
 
Ever wondered what happens to your lost drone or plane while you are searching for it ?

Had to make an emergency landing with my fpv twinstar because it lost a propeller. While I was searching for it, 2 girls found the plane, and their conversation was recorded by the still operational HD camera. I was quite amazed by their technical insight and conclusions !

Very lucky your country if filled with honest and smart people.


Are you using Counter Rotating Props?
If so was it the one turning in reverse that came off?

I am building a Twinstar for FpV also and wonder about the props.

No counter rotating props. This twinstar is 6 years old and was my first plane. Multirotors were unheard of at that time and counter rotating props were very rare.
I think the prop came off because of the long glide. My guess is that it was driven by the wind and unscrewed itself that way.

Isn't that what the object of this FPV stuff is..? To overfly as many school yards full of kids, freeways full of cars and residential neighborhoods as possible..?
If something goes wrong...so what...? That's not YOUR problem, your "job" is to satisfy your immediate needs for fun, regardless. Right...?
