I wanted to compile 1 minute of some of my favourite quadcopter crashes in 2014, but somehow I added extra and it became a two minutes video. There are just simply too many crashes I had last year 😀
The animation intro of this video is made using paint, which was fun to do. Footage filmed with GoPro and Mobius Camera.
I used FPV250 and ZMR250 mini quad frames in 2014, both are good value frames athough not the toughest. A couple of them didn’t survive the torture, but it’s cheap enough to replace and rebuild.
Not all crashes were pilot errors: 0:46 was an ESC issue, 0:59 was a Flight controller issue (rain – wet), 1:02 was a radio issue (lost signal), 1:50 was a FPV camera issue (blinded by sunlight).
So far only broke 2 arms which costed me £5 to replace. Very happy with this frame 😀

Url in description points to not existing page. Which frame is that and did
it broke with any of these crashes?
Great edit, great music!
I don’t feel so bad now with my epic fails…
Leaf it out
Lol like that one
It’s becoming painfully obvious that Gravity isn’t a force of attraction…
It just hates us!!
Great edit Oscar, Loved it
Fly hard. Crash hard. :)

Thanks for sharing, good to see I am not the only one who suffers from the
dreaded “Ninja Trees”. They just jump out at you when you least expect it,
either that or I have Tree Magnets on my all my quads somewhere.
What was the ESC issue @ 0:46? I’m trying to diagnose a similar problem.
Quad keeps stalling during acrobatic maneuvers – just drops like a rock
from the sky.
