    Found this video on another forum. These fools have obviously not read the manual, no calibrations etc..
    Skip to 12:15 to see how they trim a bush.

    Really start at 10:50 and this is the biggest reason we are being hounded by the FAA .
    Unfortunately this is the mentality of a lot of people after something bad happens then show the "toy" respect and maybe do some reading or watch some vids on the how to operate o_O
    Tanks for sharing UKF :)

    Scene 1: Flummoxed pilot is flying prop guard-less drone at neck level and only two feet from his neck! Being a new pilot, he inadvertently flies the drone towards his neck and face rather than to the right as he intended!

    Scene 2: After a garbled 911 call, the ambulance arrives....

    They need to fly their phantom between their legs, so they don't breed more idiots!

    I think they were more interested is making a video than flying a Phantom. Everyone wants to be a star on youtube.

    Apparently more money/credit than brains. They talk about the videos they've seen but seem to have not retained any of the info.

    Only good thing here is that you just know that they will crash the thing enough to finally break it for good, then they will move on to something else..

    "Like, I don't know how to stop this thing once it starts."

    Umm... wouldn't it be a good idea to figure out that small detail BEFORE you start it. I hope these twits don't get access to a car.

    What really bugs me is these two kids are so nonchalant about the possibility of destroying a $1,000 piece of equipment within minutes of assembling it. My old man would have uno me out to dry and made me get a manual labor job to work it off. These nimrods have no concept of the value of a dollar. If they don't hit the lottery before mommy and daddy kick them out of the house, they are in for a difficult life in the real world.

    Yeah just so much wrong. Think they just want to be youtube nobheads, but they damage our sport.
    Anyway they smashed it up without hitting anyone,so they are out of the flying business.
