    Besides the obvious crash, does anyone know how the P2V+ behaves if it were to lose a motor during flight? I'm assuming there is no chance of a normal landing no matter the skills of the pilot.

    Regards,

    No chance to save in flight. You can only hope for a miraculous save by somehow falling in a haystack or something.
    (you get the idea)

    This a/c has no tolerance for fault in the propulsion systems.

    Even chipped props can create enough vibration to hamper the IMU's ability to properly measure forces.

    That's pretty darn amazing. I hope its a matter of time till DJI gets ahold of that program and we can all upgrade.
