HIs first flight, just taken out of the box. Ignored literally everything. Bypassed all the stickers, notices, warnings, pamphlets, and instructions. Didn't even bother to charge the battery. Then acted surprised when the battery was suddenly getting low. Then had no clue how to handle it since he didn't read anything. Then it started to drift towards a fence since he didn't know how to control it and didn't know what buttons he was even pushing. So he decided the best course of action was to stick his hands in the propellers.
