The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority has banned a number of DJI drones from flights over human beings as investigations are carried out into the cause of some models falling out of the sky.http://flip.it/niN-u8 How safe in nowadays invest in aerial photo/video is that stuff happens?

My apologies if this has previously been discussed at length already. I'm in the market for a drone and at first considered the DJI Inspire 1 Pro, with X5 Zenmuse lens. However, at €3800, it would take me a lot of sales to recover the initial outlay and I'm wondering if it's going to be worth it, as I don't plan on doing much else with it. Is anyone using a drone with a less superior camera, perhaps the X3 Zenmuse, and getting through QC with it? I would welcome any actual-experience views on what drones and lenses you are using to get through QC, please. But, perhaps not "I hear such-and-such drone/lens is good and/or should pass because of it's specs", as it's too much of a risk to take financially with the outlay. Thanks for any concrete advice.

Make no mistake – drones, even small quadcopters like the DJI Phantom can be dangerous. Anything that can fly that fast and has a set of spinning blades on it should be used with care, so lets get the rules in place properly so people know where they stand. Cars are dangerous, but does that mean there should be a blanket ban on their use around big events or in built up areas? Of course not. More here...
