Thats just the start. There will be many more accidents in the future. Just a matter of statistics. When you have such a thing sticking in your head you will know you have the 0.00000000001% probability at 100%.
Ahh its all good, the pilot had insurance .... ;)
Our SFOC system in Canada is very, very strict about flying over crowds and now we know why. And since all commercial aerial filming is 100% illegal in the USA and there not insurable, someone is going to have to deal with a pretty large lawsuit in case one of the spectators decides to sue.
Honestly, there are no professional systems yet. Just expensive hobby systems. Anyone who flies over crowds with a copter larger than a parrot drone is just asking for trouble.
The Trappy case is going to underline what is and is not legal over there. It also looks more and more likely that the NPRM process will start later this year so small stuff might finally have a target to aim at. DHS will not evaluate platforms with less than 1000 hours of time any system used by folks after the rule change will no doubt have to have jumped through hoops somewhere.
The operator of this "drone" is a d*****bag. But IMHO so is anyone else, including spectators, who had anything to do with this degenerate imported third-world event, so no tears shed here.

+1 Erman factory approved training is a look ready big business in Europe. Others hoping to cash in should start examining that.
