I’ve seen gruesome photos of people that injured themselves badly with that type. I’m sure with experience one can use it safely and confidently, it’s just that if you use it just the wrong way and don’t anticipate the kickback it can get ugly fast. The combination of the aggressive bite of the chainsaw tooth and the 10,000 rpm speed and the unconstrained movement and application latitude is a dangerous mix I think. I’m tempted to think it wouldn’t happen to me but I’ve stayed away from them so far. In my mind it’s the top of the list of woodshop danger potential.
