Since April 14, 2015 with the upgrade 1.2.1.0, the landing gear automatically down when it detecting object 80 cm. Usually Enrique take the drone from forward, but this time, was placed just below the vision positioning device causing the detection of object,  the landing gear down and the propellers were placed below the level of the camera base, where Enrique has taken the drone. He put his right hand on this place and of course he was wounded with propellers. It is a mistake made because before this update the drone always remained with the landing gear up.
Desde el 14 de abril de 2015, con la actualización 1.2.1.0 del firmware de la nave, el tren de aterrizaje automáticamente baja cuando el sistema "vision positioning" detecta objeto a 80 cms. Normalmente en los conciertos como puede verse en los videos, Enrique se coloca delante del dron cuando lo toma de la cámara. Esta vez, se colocó detras, justo debajo del dispositivo de detección por ultrasonido. Cuando su cabeza estaba a menos de 80 cms, fue detectado por el sistema y automáticamente el tren de aterrizaje bajó, haciendo que el plano de giro de las hélices bajara al nivel de la base de la cámara de donde Enrique la tenía tomada con su mano izquierda. Al hacer lo mismo con la mano derecha, obviamente sus dedos fueron heridos por las hélices. Este error fue cometido porque antes de la actualización nombrada, el drone siempre permanecía con el tren de aterrizaje arriba (salvo una orden del piloto) lo cual permitía la manipulación segura de la cámara.

This feature can be turned off from the App however I agree with you that DJI should have left it off by default when performing the upgrade and left it to the user to switch it on if so desired.
I was also surprised by this change of behavior. As in, "oh it does that now"

Yes, however it still seems like an ill advised stunt. I nearly always hand catch my Phantom, but never dare to try it with the Inspire. It's size and weight, lack of a good hand grip and those scary 12-inch props always deter me from trying.

I strongly believe the whole idea of flying the I1 in a concert setting is very bad judgement by the production company and very dangerous. In the video you see him throw the bird forward towards the audience, putting the crowd in danger as well. If the I1 ended up flying into the audience we would be talking about more sever injury's.
When are some of you out there going to smarten up and use your head. Its stunts like this that will make the FAA create stronger laws for us commercial pilots, while the general public can fly however and when ever they want.

Just plain stupidity!!

The manual is in multiple languages for a reason.  It's called reading it and knowing about adaptive landing gear.

It is very simple to explain the cause of the 'accident' - GROSS STUPIDITY.

Stupidity on the part of the production company to fly a quadcopter (with no redundancy) over crowds of people and total stupidity on the part of Iglesias to attempt a stunt with a 3kg aircraft that had four razor sharp blades spinning at 9,000rpm close to an audience  

There is no other reason.

Still - I guess both parties will be up for the Darwin awards this year!

Exactly.  When I bought my car, I read the manual till 3 in the morning.  Most of the people I know have never read the manual for the second most expensive thing they will buy.  
Why would they do it for a flying circular saw?

Who on earth doesn't read the information after an update?
I'd 100% put this down to Not knowing your AC  due to irresponsible people not knowing what there AC does after an upgrade.

Remedy: read the manual and be 100% sure what is in an upgrade.

Bad pilot!!! Spanked bottom

Mate, I'm not sure what you are trying to prove or support!  There was ample information out, explaining what the firmware upgrade will do, so that there's no surprises.  Trying to support the premise that the change in functionality was somehow the culprit is a red flag in itself!  

Then, we get to the real issue! ...absolute stupidity operating a 'flying circular saw'  (thanks Shadrack

Gracias Señor, pero en realidad no fue una problema con el Inspire 1... Enrique no tenia que tocar  ...

Estimada young.selina, no estamos culpando al drone, solo explicando las razones que llevaron al incidente, causado por la imprudencia de Enrique.

Bottom line, anytime you update anything check your settings to make sure they are not off.

I was offended by Enrique's manhandling of the gimbal before I got to the part where he cut himself.  He's lucky it didn't fall the other way and hit him in the face!
