    At first, she thought it might be a bomb.Quote 1

    It sounded like he was arrested. If he intentionally fly into the U.S. Open I hope they throw the book at him! Make an example to the rest of the morons out there!! :mad:

    He is Very lucky no one was sitting where it crashed! I can't believe anyone could be stupid enough to think there is nothing wrong about flying over the U.S. Open while there is play going on! They don't even want whispers out of the people watching and he thinks it ok to be buzzing overhead of some of the best tennis players in the world!
    Makes us all look like a$$holes no matter how safe and considerate the majority of us are! Not good!! :confused:

    Reckless endangerment and LaGuardia airport is less than 3 miles away. So depending on his altitude he could have an airspace infraction as well if he didn't contact the airport before flying.

    When you think you have seen the worst of it, a bigger idiot materializes.

    Let's make a list of the things he should have known:
    1. I'm a teacher I should set an example
    2. I'm a technologist I should have known how fragile these systems are and realized the probability of failure.
    3. I'm just a decent human being I should have known that flying over a venue with 4 high-speed propellers would mark me as an uncaring, narcissistic douche

    The drone operator at the us open was charged with wreck less endangerment. .sounds pretty expensive. .
    apparently there are already laws in place to deal with this kind of pilot ..
    Also on inside edition there was a case about a guy who filmed outside of a hospital and was charged for unlawful spying or something like that and was found not guilty by a jury trial... hopefully this case will help other pilots who face similar charges stay out of jail in Florida and California. .
    I'm curious if anyone knows what caused the solo to crash ??
    Funny that the gimble (if it had one) and the camera detached upon impact. .cha ching...

    I am going to go get myself arrested just so I can sit in the cell next to him and look at him like this all night.

    The FAA and court case will determine the exact cause

    A likely cause of this crash was the interference of the broadcast equipment.

    Have flown over broadcast equipment with immediate loss of signal.

    This guy did not consider the possibility of radio interference.

    The SOLO boasts of having two brains.
    It requires a third to tell the pilot. "don't do it"
