The drone a DJI Spark was filming near the Radar Station No. 4, at Pico do Areeiro, more than 80 meters high, when suddenly it entered into a downward spiral that only ended with the crash of the apparatus on the ground and its consequent destruction.
The pilot finds no explanation for what happened, noting that the device never lost the signal and filmed the time of the fall completely.
When drone was recovered, three propellers were still connected to the respective engines, while the fourth one was recovered next to the apparatus.
The pilot, a Brazilian citizen who was on vacation in the Region recently, shared the video on Wednesday in his YouTube account, hoping to gather contributions that could help explain what happened.
