And that is why I raised Q10 with the DfT.

10.  There is no clear and unambiguous definition of "drone". I have previously contacted the CAA, DfT & AAIB and cannot illicit a definition. Will this be clarified in order to avoid confusion, misunderstanding and incorrect application?
Saw your contribution to the BMFA FB page, well done!

 A recent trip out with the Falcon and then some editing to stretch the 4:3 DVR out to 16:9 to match the Eagle 2 sensor.
  It was a dull day, and this camera likes that, it doesn't seem to work as well in bright, direct sunlight though.
I need to run it on a 4S setup really, I now have a SS Motor & Graupner prop onboard, and the climb rate is still lethargic at times.

... has decided in their wisdom that due to the new regulations regarding “drones” they do not want any model aircraft operated from their land so as to avoid any  involvement in potential issues. We’ve been there for 9 years with not one single complaint or issue. The local ATC know of the site and even publish a NOTAM. Even the local police have visited and given us a thumbs up.

A further spin off to this BS,( probably should not post this as I am really peed off),  a smashing little easy going rc club I belong to has just been given notice to leave out flying site at the end of September as the tenant farmers landlord, The  Crown Estate, that’s the queen and the royal family, has decided in their wisdom that due to the new regulations regarding “drones” they do not want any model aircraft operated from their land so as to avoid any  involvement in potential issues.

Yes, of course. I do it (legally) all the time for aerial photography.


I can, however, understand your comment about making it more complicated. The recent amendment quoted above certainly heads in that direction.  :(

Many Thanks for clarification electrotor, I do miss flying high speed low pass and sounds brill to be able to record it on the goggles/headset recorder to watch later.. gets the adrenalin going too

height, in aviation terms, means above ground.  altitude means above sea level.

Its been a while since I flew full size and I agree completely except for the fact a pilot used to ask for QFE and QNH as I remember... which is the best guess the tower could predict, hopefully light aircraft have GPS Height displayed and flash up on a head up display to let them know they are below 400 feet?
I only ask this because I would be out there flying now but for the fact a local music event has attracted news folk flying a helicopter and I assume they are doing a low pass fly over.. so no flying today  :(

All hope is we can all enjoy our sport/hobby knowing a set of rules to allow all to enjoy the bluesky...

Regards RBS
