Crashing the DJI FPV drone with Alex Assenmacher

Alex Assenmacher does what he does best, crashing the new DJI FPV drone. Warning, this video may be hard to watch for some as he flies the fpv drone into bushes, pours water on it, and flies it into a concrete column.

It is pretty amazing the amount of torture the DJI FPV drone is able to withstand. In true WetalkUAV fashion, Alex subjects the DJI FPV to all kinds of torture, including, balloons, a soccer ball, cards, and pulling it with a rope.

About halfway through the video, things get a little more serious and Alex pours two liters of water on the drone without any problems. Flies the into some bushes. No issue. And even flies the fpv drone into a concrete column, damaging the props in the process. Still no problem. The DJI FPV is still able to fly and while damaged, it operates as it is supposed to.

All in all, it becomes obvious that DJI has designed and built the DJI FPV drone to withstand crashes and abuse. Of course, if the damage is more profound, you can take the DJI FPV drone apart yourself and replace components such as the camera and gimbal or use the DJI Care Refresh or DJI Care Refresh+ packages.
