    Nobody was hurt in the crash-landing and no damage was done to the surroundings. The drone itself is in pieces and would require a lot of repairs before it is up and flying again.

    The drone in question is not an advanced unmanned aerial vehicle like those used in combat, but is a much smaller one which looks more like a remote-controlled aircraft used by hobbyists. Just that this aircraft was being used for testing.

    DriveSpark Thinks!

    The drone crash in Chitradurga didn't harm anybody. The drone that crashed too wasn't a big, expensive drone and so it isn't as big a loss to the DRDO, and crashes like this are expected when equipment is being tested.
