If you want to keep your drone intact just respect all the precautions and don't stay in a place where are a lot of cables
This is the crash video


If you want to see a video where there is a lot of work for the montage check this please :

Ultimately, it looks like you were fine. . Keep in mind that electrical wires can cause magnetic interference. If your aircraft is functioning fine that great save on your end.

I had a very similar crash, but mine was a waypoint flight.  I programmed it to fly below the power lines by about 8 feet.  What I forgot was the phone line, mounted about 8 feet below the power line on the pole.  Cost me a camera and gimbal and a couple of props.  Glad yours came through ok.

Awesome video Hugo!  I like how you paused for a moment and made sure you were perfectly lined up with the lines in order to hit them.  Excellent save afterwards.

I'm curious; what exactly were you trying to do?  Fly between 2 of the cables as a stunt for the video?  Maybe on your next attempt just inch along slowly and speed up the footage in post.  I didn't see any trees swaying in the wind so it would have worked out OK I think.

Looking forward to seeing your next attempt!

Having gotten lucky, doesn't mean it will happen, like that every flight.

Please be more aware of your immediate surroundings, before taking to the air. ;-)

Being a country boy, flying in town with all the suspended cables around makes me nervous.  Pretty good recovery though, especially considering nothing was broken.

That's incredible. It's good that the drone doesn't have impact damage. Always watch out the environment around.

No no, I don't think you have this piloting thing figured out quite yet.  When something good happens, you're supposed to take credit and boast about your superior flying skills.  When something bad happens you are to blame the aircraft or company management.  That's the way things are done.
