    After losing a $20,000 camera, I'd probably feel the same way...

    I don't recognize the airframe, and are those wooden props? It just looks strange. I am going to bet he lost control due to taking off at higher altitude than he was filming and lost orientation. I could be wrong though. Nothing in that photo looks like a $20 G rig.

    I remember his last crash. Same airframe and wood props too. Glad to hear him say "I'm done". Don't need that while legislation is forthcoming

    Aviation is a self-cleaning oven.

    “I’m done,” he said of his career as a drone pilot.
