While capturing footage of a San Diego pier, photographer Tice Ledbetter drew the attention of a seemingly annoyed fisherman who then cast his line into the drone's prop. Not knowing what had occurred, Ledbetter flew the drone for half a mile before landing and didn't know how the fishing line got entangled until after he watched the footage.
Like many drone videos, that feature drone-human interaction, this one didn't fail to stir up a debate with strong, polarized opinions on the subject. If you look at Ledbetters's YouTube comment section you will see a clear divide between those who approve of the fisherman's actions and those who condemn them. But whether you love or hate drones, one thing is undeniable: they catch some cool shit. Thanks for sharing, Tice.
