The report identified three dominant injury types applicable to small drones:

  • Blunt force trauma – the most significant contributor to fatalities
  • Lacerations – blade guards required for flight over people
  • Penetration injuries – difficult to apply consistently as a standard

I'd really like to know where those fatalities are!?  I've been flying drones since about 2008 and I don't know of any fatalities as a result of civil multirotors.  Most of this hype is a solution in search of a problem.
