Probably more of a hazard to the onlookers than the pilot, in terms of getting lawnmowed, which could explain the cautious flying. It might also be marginal in terms of control; get a little bit out of the stationary hover mode, and next thing you know it's diverging and you're flying sideways, spinning, swinging like a pendulum, and probably crashing. I think the second guy, who did try to get a little altitude, was a smidge heavier than the motor could handle, because most of the time he was more moonwalking than flying. If you were going to try to fly high with it, I think you could probably rig a panic brake system to stop the stop the blades if you needed to throw a chute.
