Helicopter crashes after manoeuvres to 'avoid... DJI Phantom drone'

Re: It's time...

The pilot of the heli should have stayed put. Likely, the operator of the 'drone*' would have eventually seen the heli and flown it away. If the 'drone*' did make contact with the rotors, it would have been pinged off and destroyed, and the heli would have continued as if nothing had happened. Taking evasive action, and in turn crashing into a 'small tree', is what caused the crash here.

* if there was indeed a drone there at all
