Tricopter sheds a motor mid flight.

I was happily flying around, when one of the motors decided to embark on an ill-advised solo career as a helicopter. The rest of the band didn’t fare so well without it, and, like this analogy, flailed clumsily before crashing to the ground.

Fortunately I managed to retrieve the escaped motor, and the tricopter crashed into some nice soft mud, so no damage was done, though I did have to spend quite a bit of time cleaning everything.
