The bond between a pilot and their drone is a close one, it's forged the moment they buy it and is broken only through lack of available power points or the cruel mistress of nature.
Not everyone comes out the other side with their dignity intact. It's a messy love affair based on the desire to keep something safe, not least because it's worth hundreds of pounds.
This might be one of the sweetest and yet funniest examples we've seen so far as the owner quickly realises that he's run his DJI Phantom 2 well past its battery life.
While it is indeed true that the Phantom will automatically start descending slowly to preserve itself, neither the drone or the pilot have any idea of where it'll land.
