The popular toys are causing problems, but still expect to be a top hit this Christmas season.

Careful with those drones!

A crash or other accident can cause you legal trouble.

Two guests at a wedding recently learned the hard way just how dangerous they can be. Guests saw a drone hovering above the dance floor, but then it crashed into the crowd below.

But those incidents aren't the only reports of high-profile incidents.
