Propellers

Since the toddler suffered cuts, it was the drone’s propellers that did the damage. We Talk UAV covered why you shouldn’t touch propellers, but being that propeller blades are such an integral part of today’s consumer drones, it’ll take a drastic change to replace popular quadcopter designs.

What could have prevented the UAV from cutting the toddler?

If the drone pilots equipped their UAV with propeller guards, then the cuts on the toddler could have been prevented.

It is still unclear how exactly the drone pilots lost control of their UAV, but these tips from the FAA should help reduce the chance of causing any injuries while flying a drone:

-Never fly over groups of people, public events, or stadiums full of people.

-Fly your drone at or below 400 feet

-Keep your drone within your line of sight
