Santa has brought a surprising gift to many people this year, an exciting gadget that can offer plenty of fun to owners. But it’s also a device that, when mishandled, will cause terrible anguish — though anyone witnessing such events might have a laugh or two at the previous owner’s expense.
“Dad has had his drone for under an hour and has stuck it to the dog already,” user @andrew_gazeley writes.
“Bought my dad a remote control mini drone for Christmas.. yeahhhhh probably needs to go uni for 4 years to learn how to fly it,” user @conorbrooke7 says.
“My dad just told us he got us a drone for Xmas & brought it to his shop to practice and it hit the ceiling fell to the floor and burst 2 flames,” @mbass_0 writes.
“My dad accidentally flew his drone to the mall and then followed it in a high speed chase with my sisters. Merry Christmas,” @michpassariello says.
Meanwhile, The Verge has posted various pictures and videos showing several mishaps with drones, alongside some equally funny tweets detailing first drone-related reactions from Twitter users this Christmas.
