Dridiot of the Month

Drone Flying Idiot = Dridiot

I know that it is somewhat presumptuous to give away a monthly award before the month is over, but as of February 10, we have someone who has so personified the word Dridiot (Drone-flying idiot) that there is simply no point in waiting another 20 days -- no one (I hope) can top this Dridiot. And so, Diego Miranda who uploaded this video, we know you aren't the idiot who flew it, but if you find that guy, please tell him, a) be thankful you apparently don't live in the US or I would personally turn him into the FAA, and b) enjoy your 15 minutes of fame courtesy of our website, because you truly are, the DRIDIOT OF THE MONTH. Also, you are giving drunk government employee who crashed the drone by the White House an early challenge for the coveted Dridiot of the Year award.

Co-pending Dridiots of the Month for August, 2015

We have to make this a contingent award, since depending on which side you believe, the Dridiot of the Month award could be given to either:

Drone Pilot:  I was flying high over the crowd and when I was trying to land my drone a guy on the beach threw his shirt up and crashed my drone.  "He did $750 in damage to my quad copter, and that's my livelihood," said the pilot. "I'm in a world of hurt right now. I really am."  (Did you have a 333?).  OK, if we believe the pilot, the guy on the beach gets the award.


Guy on Beach.  Some pervert was flying his drone over our group and it was so low I threw my shirt and hit the drone.  If we believe guy on beach, the drone pilot gets the award.

What do I think?  Why was drone pilot trying to land in a crowd when the safest thing would have been to fly away from the crowd and land in an uncrowded location?  If there was no uncrowded location, why did he fly in the first place?  Why did he not land over his own head and do an air-grab?

Drone Pilot definitely has the inside track on the Dridiot of the Month award here.

  • Dridiot of the Month for February is now closed.  The Dridiot who flew his drone into the flight path at McCarron Airport in Las Vegas takes the cake.  Actually, in honor of the incredible degree of stupidity this dronist has shown, we are giving him/her the "Dridiot of the Quarter" award.  To accept this award, please give us your name and address and we will send you your reward (and cc:  the FAA on your personal information, I'm sure they have somethnig for you too).
