Bad Drone pilot!
Nice throw, he can be my wingman anytime!
That was wrong he could've speared someone...
I highly doubt those spears are anything close to sharp.
I'm not sure on how formally the drone pilot was involved in this because if he was and the crew were properly briefed there should be no reason for someone to throw anything at the drone. If the drone pilot did not have permission then he got what he deserved.
But, so many folks think it's OK to down a drone and car not about the cost to the owner, a cost that could be many thousands of dollars.
So, I have not idea if he was supposed to be there but if he was not permitted he has nothing to complain about even though the idea of taking down the drone is bad given the risk that it could fall on someone or the spear could hit someone.
It's a public event and there are probably other people with cameras around. In a way, that Phantom(?) is no different than someone running around with a video or still camera. I'm pretty sure Conan there wouldn't have speared the camera then. But then there's the safety issue with crowds. It didn't look like safety was an issue until both drone and spear are coming down. Obviously I don't have all the facts but so far, I'm with the drone operator on this one.
Pilot was flying pretty low and close to the crowds which is a no no however; that doesn't give Davy Crockett the right to chuck a spear at it. We'd be going to court for the damages.
I'd punch the helmet off that guy
Why so much hate for drones?
I'd be pissed too, but because I went through the trouble of being historically accurate with my ensemble and the drone is clearly not from the period we're representing here, so... yeah!
