The FAA gets a case study with a drone crash inside an MLB stadium

PSA, flying you’re drone over a baseball stadium with tens of thousands of fans is a really really bad (and probably illegal) idea.

Yesterday someone flew their drone (which appears to be a GoPro Karma) into Petco Park, the stadium belonging to the San Diego Padres, an MLB team. And yes it was during a game, so of course the event was captured on camera.

What’s even worse is that after hovering for a few minutes the drone crashed right into fans sitting in the upper deck.

If you watch the video you’ll see that the drone didn’t just fall out of the sky – it maneuvered sideways directly into a spectator.
