Parrot ANAFI Unusual Crash

When I recovered it the propellers were indeed damaged two snapped off and all the others were bent.
I think your crash may have been caused by a bird strike. At about 1:27+ in you video you can see a hawk swoop down out ahead and then swing up past your drone. That's just a bit before the drone starts being jostled about.BirdStrike.gif


At about 2:35 you can see something appear to the left for a couple frames. This may be the bird. It is definitely very close to the lens.

That's my 2 cents.

Wouldn't there be scratch marks on the drone if this happened though?
 
Yeah not a bird attack, hawks and other birds of prey have never bothered mine on all of my flights. They and other birds are superior fliers and know what they are doing. Some will get close or fly by for curiosity.
