...so many people do dumb s^$t with "drones." This article was sent as one of many by 3DR advertising their Iris. Obviously they are just looking to move product rather than inform potential buyers. I'll link to the other stories at the bottom, but here is my favorite quote from this one: "They’ve supplemented (or in some cases, replaced) confusing joystick controls with apps that tell them to take off, follow flight paths and land autonomously." Oh wait, here's another moment of brilliance: "They quickly transformed me from a novice pilot to a good one..."

Oh, yeah, the autonomous drones are safer because hardware never fails and software is always perfect. :roll:
