Sometimes drones fail for no rhyme or reason, which in an ideal condition may be a lot easier to retrieve and recoup but cliffside? YouTuber Fuel my passion, be my Inspiration takes their DJI Mavic out for a spin across a rugged mountain terrain.  The drone loses partial communication with the remote and paves its own path. Well, great now they have to recruit a climber to rescue you!

Heroes can be found in all situations and recently, drone rescues are a time for the brave.

This drone found itself in the hands of a stranger when it fumbled to earth. It's in the exciting moment that the motorcyclist returns the drone and it is released back into the sky. This guy is a hero nonetheless.

So Many Things Go Wrong With Drones

We've seen endless drone failures but this one takes it to a whole new level when a drone crashes straight into someone's lap. Scorp in the Sky was filming with a drone when another one suddenly came out of thin air, crashing into his knees.  Even with several test runs, this next drone couldn't help but crash at the most inopportune time... When the GoPro was finally attached. YouTuber LinusNil sends his drone up on a snowy day only for it to come crashing down. Most drone fails are genuine but what if they were manipulated? The camera captures beautiful Lake Wannsee in Berlin, Germany when all of the sudden it begins spiraling down to earth. Oh no! Wait, Nicolas Kamp might have added some after effects in this video.

Why Can't Drones Rescue Themselves?

Please enable JavaScript to watch this video. Think of the last place you'd want to get your drone stuck? For YouTuber PrazeFPV, the top of a 30-foot pine tree was one of those places.

While filming the landscape of Hillsborough, New Jersey the drone took a crash, losing the most important piece... The GoPro.  View Now
