I was told about it yesterday and put out a call on sUAS News for info, pretty sure its a DJI zenmuse Spreading Wings S800 and that the purple blinking suggests the Hex was in "position hold"
So perhaps shows that GPS does not work so well in an area with a restricted view of the sky.
Pilot too excited and fast....what a muppet!
For every video like this us as a community needs to create 100 videos of successful flights. Lesson learned about flying it above an area full of people. Rule #1 never fly above people. Thanks for Sharing Mark very informational!
i agree with joshua, now one of things we also need to do is find a way to safely get it down in a cato-fail.
IMO, the more RTF the aircraft is, the more likely we are to see this sort of thing.
If it work similar the Phantom, the 3 red flashes indicate that the unit can only see 3 sats. not enough for gps hold....so apparently they did not even read the instructions. It would not surprise me if it was the first flight for the aircraft and pilot
I have never done any RF testing in a stadium but can only guess how bad it could be. I had some gps hold problems a couple of weeks ago and I was 300 yard away from the Cell tower

Wow some one had some extra cash to burn 3k just for the gimbal
The level of ignorant trust that is exhibited in the technology is amazing.
Unless the fans are signing waivers, what would posess any facility to allow a multirotor to fly anywhere near the fans? For that matter, even if the stadium was empty (it was fairly sparse) and the players were in scrimmage, the danger is no less. To injure a paid professional athlete would have caused a global black mark on the technology.
Wow. Just plain wow.
Remember that these are not DIY people just flying around for fun in a stadium. The stadiums often pay companies to fly them around and hand out promotions and coupons.
