I guess its true you can not fix stupid. What idoit would that even had trouble taking off would take off from the side of a building in space barely big enough to stand. Those people will kill the deal without even trying. Completely STUPID.

Yea that is messed up. Everyone flying quad copters. Please fly responsibly. things like this will get us close to having more laws against quadcopters.
Don't be an Idioit, take the time to learn how to fly and know your local laws of where you can and can't fly. and don't be afraid to ask questions.

It was a Phantom, and based on the video the guy really was not the best pilot. Its only a matter of time before these incidents happen more and more often because these RTF machines are becoming cheaper and cheaper and thus more obtainable by the general public who is ignorant to the way they work and the practice involved.

^^^ Douche response^^^

Just a "toy" until it lands on a pedestrian or some kid walking 300 feet below and causes serious injury or death. Totally irresponsible on the part of the operator.

On a side note, DJI makes a pretty durable product. That thing took beating before finally going down.

Was he flying LOS? and although it does not look like it, he must have been using the prop-protectors to be able to crash into buildings several times..

TOTALLY irresponsible flying no matter what...

and it was a DJI Phantom... there's a lot of noise lately about "fly-aways" in which the Flight Controller stops responding to transmitter input - almost always ending up in a dangerous and expensive crash (think GoPro with gimbal)

I love the part where the newsman says 'and he is not skilled'

Let me drop a 3lb weight on your head from 400 feet. Will you be ok with that? Allegedly, this quad crashed feet from a pedestrian. That is not "playing with a toy". It's negligence.

Scott... Don't waste time on a counter argument with this guy. ANYBODY that advocates a dismissal of the "pilot's" actions or responsibility is a troll.
