Impacts are always fun videos to watch, especially in slow motion and even more so when it results in something being completely obliterated. Well, we’ve got the impact and the slow-motion but not so much of the obliteration in this video. It was created in partnership with the Virginia Tech Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership, the College of Engineering, and State Farm to evaluate drone collision risks with a moving vehicle.
Almost as soon as the video starts, a DJI Mavic 2 Pro enters the frame and hits the windshield of the car. But instead of smashing to bits, there’s a bit of bending and then it just skims off the top, with no immediately obvious damage to either the drone or the windshield – which does a Matrix-like wobble on impact.
