Soccer/Football players not happy with multicoper

I apologize if this is a repost, but I thought it may be of some interest. Looks like someone was flying a multicopter (can't tell by the shadow if it's a tri or quad) over a soccer field, but the players weren't very happy about it. I don't know that it was FPV for sure, just assuming.

Soccer ball take down

Not knowing the backstory here, I think the pilot got a little too close for safety's sake.

I agree. Copters and multis are really just flying SkilSaws. I am not in favour of the safety nannies, but use common sense, folks.

there was a post about this here on rcgroups from the pilot, it was a planned promotional event and was not flown FPV, he had pics of the whole thing and flew from a golf cart following down the hill... I did find this though
