    while I hate the reckless piloting... the drones ability to recover from that crash midair looked impressive (lucky).

    Amazing recovery by phantom, to overcome poor piloting and poor judgement.

    The Phantom went into RTH after its signal was blocked by the minaret it collided with.

    Looks like they did the classic move of flying around something, losing signal, RTH into obstacle.

    BTW, OP your beheading comment is ignorant and in poor taste.
