If it starts collecting dust on the counter rotating props it can still develop unbalanced rotation. That's about all I can see going wrong. Kind of what having it sit around on the surface could promote.

Or it might just smother the engine and make it unusable. Like when a plane flies through the volcanic ash cloud or a car drives into a massive puddle

Why don't they call it a Drone instead of a Helicopter? They blades will need to be very large to get a grip in the low gas atmosphere!
