The UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch just issued its report into an accident to a  DJI Matrice 210 that was being operated commercially to record video footage of an outdoor athletics event. 

The pilot started to position the aircraft back towards the landing site due to an increase in the rainfall. The pilot then saw the aircraft “wobble” slightly and as it neared the landing site it flipped over before descending rapidly to the ground from a height of about 3 m (10 ft).

No one was injured. During the accident flight the aircraft had been operating at heights of up to about 30 m (100 ft) near to, and above people on the ground. This investigation reviewed other similar accidents and the risk of injury to people on the ground.

Two safety recommendations are made to the UK CAA.

The full 27-page report is available here.
