Match between Serbia and Albania abandoned when a quadcopter carrying a flag was flown over the pitch.
Players started brawling when one side grabbed the flag and tried bring the drone down.

Allegedly, Orfi Rama, brother of Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, was arrested this evening in the VIP lounge of the Partizan stadium under suspicion that he organized and managed the incident with the Albanian flag, Serbian Daily ‘Blic’ reports. Serbian media reports that he has an American passport.

This was more to do with the flag than the fact that a drone was involved. This is the sort of headline you'd expect in the Mirror.

BTW the drone also had Ebloa

Well, given the choice of watching aeromodelling or football I understand that the model was clearly the more interesting, So there was not a lot of point continuing with the kicking.  And of course the kicking people were upset, being outshone like that.

How long before we start shooting the drones down? nerf guns or combat drones?

Combat drones - now that could get me interested in multi-rotor thingies!

I saw a story on TV where a quadcopter was used to deliver drugs into a prison. Anything can be abused and its always the law abidding people that miss out

Indeed. I've heard of cars being used to deliver drugs. So lets ban those. And some times people deliver drugs so lets ban those too.

Going back to the video clip I'm surprised to see people wandering all over the strip and not keeping behind the flight line or in the pilots box. Also the 2 net like structures, I assume they are to arrest over shot landings. I like the way all the club members dress the same.

I like the way the poor chaps have to run away from the nasty quad copter but burning flair concerns no one.
