Something seems to go out of balance or motor become loose.

Any thing broken?
Did you land?
Any pictures of aircraft after incident?

Video says shot down By Dutchman. Maybe he did it

I luckily landed without any damage apart from the prop blade that broke off the hub.
It was not an aircraft failure as you can see the impact point on the blade piece.
Its closer to the centre of the prop where its moving slower. I dont think a bug type insect could have done this. It must have been a projectile.

Just before the ground I found I could still slow the fall with more throttle and stay almost level

I am going to fly there again with the camera covering those belconies...

That would have been one heck of a shot using an air gun.
