Well, at least he wasn't flying alone.
I guess this could be one of the downsides to aggressive flying without a fence in front of you.

The RC pylon racers learned that lesson decades ago, after several corner workers were hit by the RC pylon planes got out of control. After 3 or 4 got hit (but I don't remember if any were killed) they mandated cages / fences and helmets for the workers.

Problem with that was that the plane's motor could still penetrate the cage/fence.

If you skip me I can't play!
