It's not the MR being dangerous that has everyone in an uproar.

It's their ability to fly unassisted and carry a 'payload'.

I just know the Media is waiting with baited breath for the first one to be used as a bomb.

Must be something in the Air. I fly a Blade 350 QX and do AP. I try to follow the rules and not fly dangerously. I assume the pilots had a lot of trust in the DJI product so they took risks that they shouldn't have. Until we cover everything in foam nothing is safe. That coffee table corner can kill you!!

Nope. If you fly a QX into a soap bubble, the body shatters and the bubble floats on.

You can get hurt or inflict harm on another person in the blink of an eye.
I get apprehensive when my f450 or f550 starts to drift back towards me. I know that if one of those ([email protected]) 13,616 RPM rotors gets me, it's a trip to the clinic to get sewn up. So don't let the fact that it's a multi rotor fool you. They are still very capable of doing harm to any one.

Quad w/10" props at 14KRPM=tip speed of 439822.978 inches per minute
450(18") at 13616RPM=tip speed of 769966.672 inches per minute

It's the tip that does the quisinart on you. Then, we also have the mass issue. A 450 CP heli weighs more than a 450 quad and has greater velocity. So, mass X velocity squared means a cp 450 heli hits a boat load harder.

Quads are safer!

The Swedish Chef now has a new kitchen appliance for Slicen Der Letticee...

However the gun slicing method still seems to be much safer and seemingly entertaining.
