This is exactly the kind of stuff that will feed an outcry to ground drone operators. We need to ensure we're MUCH more responsible than this. A single collision with an aircraft will result in the FAA outlawing all drones overnight!
I think anyone purchasing one of these things will at some point test the altitude limit. Most likely out of curiosity I think but once you reach that limit, there is no point trying to break the record again and again. So I would say normal curiosity will push people to test the limits, but stupidity will make them do it regularly.There's a moron from Sweden on YouTube posting movies flying above the clouds. Then he lost his quad. I told him I wished he lost all his quads if that is how he flew. Said the quad laws in Sweden were different, but I responded that the risks to other aircraft were the same. You guys would be surprised at the number of posts he got supporting him and attacking my position.
You can't fix stupid.
