Watch what happens when an illegally operated drone spirals out of control into a group of people attending a public event. It crashes right into a woman, hitting her on top of the head. This crash could have been avoided if this recreational drone operator would have followed the rules. Let's please keep these things from happening by educating people, following the regulations and using plain common sense!

      the drone fell on a woman's head as you can see in the video and she collapsed on her friends arm. She was rushed to the hospital and suffered severe whiplash

      Not only dangerous but wreck less. They should not be flying directly over all these people. Actually people flying recreationally are not even supposed to be flying in public event without proper permissions..

    I wanted to share this with everyone to show why its important to follow the regulations we have in place for flying UAVs. This crash could have all been avoided if this recreational drone operator would have followed the rules. We were flying there because we had gone through the proper step to acquire permission from the city, airport, and Transport Canada, but this guy had absolutely nothing and I did warn him that he should not be flying there specially being less then not 9k but 3km from the airport and being a public event. Please, lets keep these things from happening by educating people, following the regulations and using plain common sense!

      If you watch the video carefully you will see that the phantom 3 drone falls directly on a woman head. She was rushed to the ER

    90% of people have common sense. Thanks to the 10% of stupid people, the FAA regulates the use of drones, thus making life harder for the 90% of smart people.
