DJI Phantom 2 Death Drop Crash

The DJI Phantom 2 has been suffering from severe power failures.

While capturing footage for our upcoming article on DJI Phantom quadcopters our very own DJI Phantom 2 fell victim to a power failure and subsequent crash.

Our P2 was about 30 days old and had about 27 flights logged. As you can see in the video we were taking off and gaining altitude when the failure hit. We had a full battery and just completed a flight check on the ground and in the air for the first 30 seconds. (not in this clip)

We are currently in contact with DJI regarding this matter and will post updates to our inquiry as we learn more.

A big thank you to our videographers Marc from The Random Bits & Bytes Blog and Jonathan Mosher.
