Make outrageous claims that you violated the law – to get YouTube video views #drones #uas #uav #quadcopters
UK Commercial drone pilot Matthew Greaves spots the absurdity of YouTubers claiming quadcopter near miss collisions with airliners in order to get more views on their YouTube videos.
The YouTuber is claiming he flew his quadcopter in violation of UK laws and regulations and nearly collided with an airliner. Except that did not happen. It’s just a click-bait video title.
In fact, the thumbnail image is a bad PhotoShop creation. The video shows no aircraft what so ever.
It is bewildering that someone would make such a claim to get more video views as this could lead to an official investigation and a waste of resources, similar to making false crime reports.
