Not the best idea to fly over so many people, so close to people, and apparently at the end actually flying over people seated in the stadium.

What would have happened if the F550 had a prop break or motor fail? It would have fallen down about 100ft onto the people in the stadium. Hello lawsuit!

Dumb idea to even make this video. It is certainly not the "best video ever". In my opinion, it is never a good idea to fly over people.

Sorry but this might be the worst video I've ever seen. I normally wouldn't be so harsh but you obviously have no regard for personal safety and this could have easily turned into a very bad day for some of the fans and for our hobby. I really wish that you would consider becoming more responsible in the future.

That was a lawsuit waiting to happen! Stunts like this is what will get us all grounded.

Yup...front page "potential" stuff right there. Its only a matter of time when flights like this will go very wrong and a bystander that has no clue as to the possible danger, will get injured.

This portion of the hobby truly needs regulation/certification. Too many "looky what I can do without thinking" people out there. It is my opinion that the FAA is just waiting for a major "incident" then they can drop the hammer. Until then they just sit back with talk of rules and such. After the "incident" things will become much easier.

At the rate these things are gaining popularity we better enjoy what we do while we can.

BTW I am a huge Packer fan and the video does not impress me at all.

Wow, and a lot of people thinks I am harsh on newbies. This is far from the best. This is the worst.

Not only is this one of the stupidest things you can do. You do it without a gimbal so it's shaking so bad you get motion sickness just by watching...

I don't think it's a good idea, to put it very mildly, to go "let's see how high I can go!" over a stadium packed with people.

The crowd didn't know the danger they were in. They even waved and smiled at the camera above.

wow, the footage of this guy flying above an entire stadium filled with unsuspecting people.

I am absolutely blown away by the lack of common sense of an 'adult'
