    disassembled and cut off an arm or went to ground through you due to a manufacturing flaw, defect, or design flaw, there is liability.

    That doesn't mean that the person has no responsibility.
    Flying an RC anything is a potentially dangerous game and anyone over the age of 10 knows that.  If a person chooses to use dangerous toys, they can't complain when they get hurt unless the product itself fails due to one of the above mentioned causes....lack of maintenance or not using the equipment properly is not the companies fault.

    And yes, in the case of a child it most certainly is the parents responsibility, not whatever corporation happened to make whatever properly functioning thing hurt their kid.
