Unbelievable. First video I've see of him actually making the catch. Only other videos I've seen are him carrying on with the concert and then drawing a heart on his shirt out of blood. Props to you Enrique...pun intended
The news report says there was a malfunction. After watching this a few times, it seems pretty clear there was no malfunction at all. This is the Inspire 1 and when the sensors detected his face under the drone, that triggered the landing gear to lower which is why it snapped his finger. This is not malfunction, this is bad communication between the pilot and the artist. Might have been communicated, but under the rush of the concert, Enrique might have forgotten the basic rule.
The pilot is probably out of a job as we speak, but quite frankly, the incident does not look like it would be his fault.
