Exactly. Part of the problem I think is that these copters are being flown by some individuals who just don't care for the rules and ruins it for everyone who's flying responsibly. It kind of reminds me of how motorcycle stunters' ride irresponsibly on the roads causing a lot of problems because they aren't following traffic rules. Ultimately this gives the rest of us responsible riders, a bad reputation.Is there not a drone Code of Practice in the USA? Looking at some of the videos on YouTube I am horrified at the recklessness I'm seeing. I am dreading the new laws that will ultimately be made following the idiotic ways the way some are flying their drones.
Some people get away with stupidity for a while but eventually it catches up with them and usually in a BIG kind of way.
I know that's right brother. Just to clarify, to other readers, I was in no way condoning the actions of either pilot. Both are incredibly stupid. It's just that the bias of people today is outstandingly ridiculous.Some people get away with stupidity for a while but eventually it catches up with them and usually in a BIG kind of way.
It could have been much worse. The helicopter could collided with the Phantom, the helicopter crashes, killing the pilot and a bunch of people on the ground. The NTSB, investigating the crash, would have found pieces of a Phantom 3 in the wreckage.Those pieces led investigators to the owner of the Phantom. Another ruined life.
