This video is a reminder to those of us who fly to be careful. Even when all possible precautions have been made it’s still possible for some kind of failure to cause a crash.

I did some stop motion on the bird that crashed and it only has four arms. My best guess is this is (was I guess) an X8 configuration with two props per arm. Either that or it was a really big quadcopter. I doubt it was a quad though, as the more pro filming rigs will be X8’s for more redundancy.
