BREAKING: Horror At Olympic Stadium – Drone Crashes Leaving Four Seriously Wounded
Sad to read that.
Fingerprints should make it easy to find the perps in the end.
The steel cable that suspends the camera (not drone) broke.
Different type of drone perhaps
Lol what idiot would call that a drone...oh yeah, the media. Well here's an outlet that got the story right.
Thanks for the clarification. So much for cable cameras being safer than drones.
I am pretty sure all drone activity was banned for the olympics.
That's a skycam not a drone. Use four winch motors and steel cables
Only if their finger prints are on file.
Stop making speculations
I speculate this could turn out in favour of multirotors.
With extremely powerful, redundant, tethered (unlimited flight time) and fully programmable multirotors coming to market, cable cams will eventually disappear.
Some folks are so eager to broadly paint sUAS's in a bad light they rush to judgment, fail to research or follow up on reports and quite simply refuses to acknowledge all of mankinds inventions has occasional failures. This tech is still hundreds of times safer than putting a manned aircraft overhead.
NOPE. cable cams will always be inherently safer, lose power on a cable cam and it stays where is last was. lose power on a drone and it's "Death from the skies" Cable cams are also MUCH quieter
And way more precise and controllable.
You can do 50mph with one or as delicate as 5 feet per minute!
Try doing the latter with repeatable precision with any mulitrotor on the planet - it just can't be done!
Of course all absolutely true. I wasn't saying that drones are better or safer by any means at this moment.
I was talking about the future. Was still wearing my tin foil hat
But even after I take it off, I know we will see a lot of development in all fields, safety, precision, speed, power, redundancy, noise, size, intelligence.
Who knows what is possible in 10 years from now.
Accidents like this with cable cams (there been more) will get some smart folks thinking about using drone technologies. I'm convinced some serious developments are already being worked on.
It's mostly a matter of time before 'it just can't be done' becomes 'it just couldn't be done'.
I promise I let go of the tin foil. Going to need it for the BBQ anyway.
Those cable cam are much dangerous that Drones !!! because of the weigth !
Again the media gets it wrong and we are all the bad guys.
and that is offset by redundancy and not needing to rely on power to stay up
Thanks for the clarification, what a dope!!!
