Back in July, I wrote an article titled “How Young Is Too Young For ‘Drone University?‘,” where I raised concerns about children piloting drones. At the time of publishing, the youngest drone operator was a 10-year-old from Augusta, South Carolina. In my opinion, 10 years old is too young. That being said, the youngest drone operator title is changing hands. The video below features a 17 month old piloting a quadcopter. Unbelievable.
I still believe drones are not toys. They can be very dangerous when not treated with the proper respect. That’s why I find a video featuring a 17 month-old drone pilot to be unbelievable.
I’m sure the parents think this video is cute. It’s not. It’s unsafe. At 17 months old, this “pilot” is about as dangerous as you can get.
Amazing!!! 1 year old flying rc quadcopter in wind!!!
17 month old flying his quadcopter in the wind, did well i think even when he wasnt watching. He doesnt like it when it hits him . Well done mate.
