Do you need insurance for your drone?

Recommended Posts


Straight talk.

What about the worst case scenario?

 

You lose control of your drone. It flies through the driver's side window of a school bus full of 100 children. It strikes the driver, incapacitating him. The bus flies off a bridge into a river. It hits a cruise ship full of 3,000 passengers and crew. A giant fireball envelopes the school bus and cruise ship. 3,100 people perish.

 

I'll skip the part about the cruise ship then drifting into a nuclear power plant, that then explodes and renders the whole county uninhabitable for the next 100 years.

 

Who pays?

For the replacement drone? If bought with your CC it probably is covered.

 

Oh, wait......

Not even worth trying to fly these things legally in my state as there are so many regional airports to get authorization, many no-fly-zone territories (state parks mainly) and doing it commercially means you pretty much have to study for a pilot's license with the new law and get insured ($40-$50/month). Of course no fly zone applies to hobbyists and what do people do? Fly them anyway to post on FB and monetize on YouTube which FAA is cracking down on. Then again it is a new industry so I'm sure it'll take awhile before people are really educated and fly them responsibly.

I was at a festival recently (Welcome to Rockville 2017) and there were camera drones everywhere. The drones were banned from the event and people were flying them anyways.

I can see why they were banned though.

Who pays?

That's an easy one...NOBODY pays. Everyone points finger at salamander with the drone who then promptly files BK7 and has no assets to attach. Estates of the victims are then left with the crumbs they MIGHT get from their own personal policies.
