How Not To Launch A Drone

With much ceremony and fanfare, this launch of an R/C aircraft-like drone is spectacular, just not in the way that they’d hoped.

A hilarious clip is circulating of the launch of a Portuguese Navy drone amid much fanfare and ceremony, and, to put it mildly, it doesn’t go off as planned.

The video shows a hooded service person launching a small drone, its nose-mounted engine grrrrr’ing furiously away. What happens next is just too funny.

And it’s okay to laugh at it, too, because on a second attempt, the little drone, which is apparently very solidly constructed, makes a successful takeoff.
