Sorry for those of you who don’t speak French but quite frankly, that is totally irrelevant.
This is basically any drone operator’s worst nightmare. The fact that the skier was mere feet away from having a heavy drone come crashing down on his head completely blows my mind. If he had been a few tenths of a second slower, who knows what the outcome would have been.
I wonder how the FAA is going to react to this one…I am also eager to hear the truth as to what happened to the drone for it to fail like this. We don’t know if the drone ran out of batteries, experienced a mechanical failure due to temperature, lost connection with the remote, etc. This is all speculation at this point.
If anyone has any more info on this event, feel free to post it.
