    Found this article of sorts and the video of a drone doing some footage out west.....the article was pretty unclear about what actually happened but the editing was done in such a way it was humorous.......It's my thought that what may have happened is the bird lost signal and went into RTH and the rest as they say is history....Is this a good diagnosis?

    Yes, it looks like a RtH crash.

    Moral of the story: Beware of flying behind a large object (unless it's no higher than 20m above your home point).

    I would like to commend the editor for the creative use of the audio in this clip. Good stuff! Sad but funny all rolled into one!
