Someone in my neighborhood is working on some sort of commercial quadracopter drone that is about the size of a washing machine. I get rather nervous when they send that thing up a few hundred feet into the air less than 30 meters from my home.

It made a precautionary and controlled crash into the power lines where it caught on a precautionary and controlled fire and after that it made a precautionary and controlled crash into the ground.
