Yeah...classic case of the idiotic attitude that some peole have that gets responsible drone filmakers such a bad name.

For those in the UK and can catch up with it on BBC iPlayer, the series is called 'Skies Above Britain'.

At about 32 minutes in we see that he has had some training now....and has passed his qualification...

I liked the bit when he said "He wanted to fly the drone inside the National History Museum."

I saw it too, it shows just how na´ve some people can be. What worries me is not him, who saw the error of his ways, but all the others who haven't.

The bit that interested me was the instructor telling him that there is only one qualified drone pilot in the country who is allowed to fly in some usually restricted airspace and that is because he is an ex-army drone pilot.

Wex Photographic have an inordinate number, well several anyway, of second hand drones on their website in the UK. "Used once" seems to be a common denominator.
