Which leads me to another point - is it really good that people can just jump into multirotors with minimal knowledge? When you do something potentially harmful to you and others around you, it is wise to learn about it first. My first motorbike wasn't a 1100cm^3 monster, just as my first mountain bike wasn't a custom-made Balfa DH bike.
And yet people start learning multirotors with big meat grinders, without thinking about possible consequences even once. When I hear stories about people flying their f450 from hand, above the crowd "to get some cool pics", I actually hope someone will crash one into a crowd, just so others can see the consequences.
Plus, I personally dislike lazy people always looking for a dumbed-down shortcut.
"So many drama queens in this thread... No offence guys, but I'd rather take a 1kg multi to the head than a 2000kg car driven by a drunk driver. My point is, everything is dangerous. Cars, knives, guns, soap. Hundreds of people die slipping under their shower, falling down the stairs, choking on a hamburger. Hundreds of thousands die in car accidents. Your hand slips on a steering wheel, or you look at the watch one second too long and bam, you're a childkiller." - n3mo Sound familiar?
