    Anyone else think this prank might lead to some regulations about attaching things to your phantom and whacking people in the face with it?

    No!

    The level of paranoia on this board is really getting into tin-foil-hats land.

    In this video - no one was injured and no property was damaged, so the FAA could care less. Everyone who realized it was a prank was laughing. One on the beach, hysterically. Why would having fun be a reason for more restrictions?

    Interesting that videos of witches and ghosts dangled from a Phantom around Halloween didn't evoke this "The Sky is Falling" reaction, but a rubber ballsack is a threat, how?

    Never said anything about it being threatening, I thought since it was so funny it would encourage more people to do it and cause a harassment problem.

    Dr. Ian Malcolm: Oh, yeah. Oooh, ahhh, that's how it always starts. Then later there's running and um, screaming.

    The first time somebody yanks on these guys 'balls' and gets a face full of Phantom blades, you will see the hue and cry to stop idiots like this.

    But you can't fix stupid.

    So how come no one ever sees pilots of any other type of aircraft doing such reprehensible and irresponsible acts. Just what the drone community needs! NOT! LIke the idiot that attached a 9mm glock to a drone and started shooting at targets on the ground - just great ! Restrictions and laws are made because of the activities of the lowest common denominator in society
