This is pretty bad:
I seen this. And frankly, I am not surprised. I would of least done this with a 3-6 foot buffer, it looks as if it was trying to be cleared with a foot or less. Very lucky some one was not injured seriously. From the reading of the article, it was all laughed off which is good.
That is just scary right there. I would even say that the pair was very lucky considering the area of impact and the fact there were two faces within inches of high speed blades. Let this be a lesson to those that think the Phantom can be used without RC skill.
This didn't go well on Gizmodo. trollers, haters, and ignorant people all witnessed this.
It was really stupid of the uploader to publish.
First response was "What was the pilot thinking ?"
Then I realized, he wasn't.
That's really bad, it almost looks like in addition to terrible safety practices the pilot he didn't even know the characteristics of his vehicle.
I would agree with that statement, he obviously had little experience, all quad pilots know you do not throttle up and point forward expecting to gain altitude in a vertical movement. This would have been a difficult move for an experienced pilot I really am at a loss here. That archway added so much complexity to that "flyover".
Can't fix stupid.
This is what happens when you think any RC craft is just a toy.
This is so reckless and dangerous! They should never allow amateurs to fly these things! As someone mentioned on the youtube comments section, the groom or bride could lose an eye and I think it won't be so funny then.
