If that happens, it's obviously a pain, but maybe it's worth a shot trying to make friends, settle him down and help him out. If it doesn't work, no problem, but it could turn into a neat experience with an RC newbie
The local slope we fly at is "Uncontrolled" and is a state beach. The regulars want to keep the slope open so we approach anyone new and let them know to check frequencies. I've never heard of anyone we approached react in a negative way. In many cases they're new flyers that would appreciate some help and they'll end up just like the rest of us, hooked on flying.
