great photo followed up shortly by the drone losing it's mind and nose-diving into a car-lot full of expensive vehicles and people. Fortunately nobody got hurt and I grazed a car's front quarter-panel.

Well that isn't good. This is why I'll never be able to fly near crowds. You just never know...

Yeah, bad judgement IMO. If that were my Chevy I'd be PISSED.

Man, what a 'target rich' environment.
I fear this type of event everytime I fly meaning I respect that it could happen at anytime to anyone.

I have experienced control loss in my past r/c experiences and get some comfort in the improved control systems we have today.

But what is the explaination for this event?

Man I hope you have deep pockets and good insurance... Your going to need it if you keep flying in that kind of situation.
