On Sunday afternoon, 21. May 2017. , during a Major League Baseball game between San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks (San Diego won) a drone crashed! just few inches from an innocent and unsuspecting spectator almost causing injuries.
There were people to the left, right, as well as below the empty seat, where the drone crash-landed.
Luckily children weren’t in their seats.
Even though GoPro haven’t set any NFZ restrictions on their drone (THEY SHOULD), the flight was still illegal: Flying above a crowd of people.
It was very much in the NoFlyZone set by DJI for their products (a DJI drone would not even start in that area):
“That’s why I’m in favor of drone registration. Instead of blaming all drones. They can track down this clown and take actions against the operator and not the industry as a whole.“
Please always be careful and considerate when operating your UAV.
Here is the crash from another perspective:
