This is one of the most amazing “ouch” videos we have seen lately. A less cautious drone pilot sent his drone crashing into Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Appears to be a DJI Phantom and being able to stabilize was pretty miraculous. Lucky for the pilot who either lost control of the aircraft or hit the mosque because of the lag in FPV feed. Can’t think of any other explanation, but it’s a pretty nice head on collision. One could not do better even trying to do this on purpose.
Blue Mosque or also called the Sultan Ahmed Mosque is clearly the most iconic of them all in Turkey, a top tourist destination in buzzing Istanbul. It’s called the Blue Mosque because of the blue tiles the interior is covered with. The place is swarming with tourists year round, so this was a mission with a high chance of going sour.
