Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

QuoteWe soon will live in a world where drones are zipping around us like grasshoppers.


Oh FFS! I think that we all get it that media is prone to sensationalisation  :o. But the Muppets that are in office take it all completely literally  :banghead:

I';m still trying to envisage zipping grasshoppers!  Can';t recall the last time that I saw one.

In currently working on gnawing my own let of as it';s mainly more entertaining than counting the number of BMW drivers who can';t park their cars.

As for poor flying well who would be stupid enough to fly between skyscrapers (the wins would be so unpredictable and any that you would most likely be very strong fur to being funneled down long straight streets)

Wondering if I can bring myself to look as i can';t believe how bad the written section is though (and that takes a lot as I worked in the newspaper industry for 18 years)

given the state of the take off and the fact he managed to hit a skyscraper right in front of him i don';t think he should be allowed at the sticks!!!
I started off with nothing... I still have most of it left.

What an asshole well at least there';s a good chance of them finding the moron.

He probably would have been surprised if the RTL function  didn';t manage to negotiate the skyscrapers and land back on his balcony.

I have to say he almost missed hitting some of those buildings and the Phantom took some abuse before it fell though I don';t think that DJI will want it used as an advert.

Wouldn';t be too surprised he is almost equally stupid when he drives a car etc

It';s interesting that the majority of the stupid flying we are seeing recently is all with rtf phantoms.  It does appear that having to build it yourself and work out the basics was enough to keep the muppets away.

Must have had the prop protectors on.. :thumbdown:
I did see something similar last year on the tube, but this particular guy was actually on film in a cityscape, crashed his quad into a skyscraper, ended up calling the fire service as it burst into flames on the ';side walk';.!!  Anybody else see this?
! Private video

S*** he';s made it private!!
Can';t say I';m surprised.

Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.
