    I just read now that in London a plane with 132 passengers on approach for landing crashed into an object according to the pilot would be a drone.
    There was no damage to the aircraft.
    If people still do not respect the rules, so the drones will be severely restricted or banned.

    I was under the impression no drone can go OVER 1700 feet yet these pilots claim 2200 and 4000 feet high?

    No Phantom 3 or 4 can go past 500 metres but it's possible for other drones.
    The reports of this incident don't mention any altitude.

    That would be incorrect. Some may be limited by software but many will go many thousands of feet in the air.

    EDIT: was here to close it but ya beat me to it Meta. ;)
