    I'd say that isn't possible, would have bounced off the window

    I thought the same after watching this. Especially the cracked window.

    Nonetheless, the media will still take this and MAY possibly create bad press. Did you see the comment in the actual youtube video? Someone already wants to run a story on this.

    Well I'd say they would have to prove it, easy to make a fake video. The weight of the phantom is under 2kgs you would have to throw it through the window with a rocket attached to it, still say impossible.

    Agree and this kind of video is perfect for myth busters indeed

    There's one broken prop.

    I don't know. Doesn't look fake to me.

    In addition modern phantoms don't have audio... So the engine sound is from eh where?

    if that was one of those old warehouses turned into an office, the windows might be super thin.

    Fake viral video attempt to cash in on drone hysteria. They are everywhere these days. Media already wants to run it.

    Well, while it appears real enough, usually a 5th floor window should have tempered safety glass. Blowing debris in winds should not be able to break the glass in your 5th floor home.

    HOWEVER, if you click on the YouTube link, and read the comments, it appears this happened in South America where the rules regarding window glass on multi floor buildings may not be as strict as in the United States.

    Sorry, but I have to throw the BS flag on this one.

    Even the sound of the glass breaking sounds fake..............Phantom should have bounced off.
