Slightly interesting that the largest model association in the UK is telling members to hold off with registration. Wouldn't that mean that members are uninsured?

No. It means hold off for now. Still a lot of work going on. Although it is highly likely that the insurance will not be dependent on being registered.

There was a guy who runs a Youtube channel called "On The Kitchen Table" walking around on his video wearing a "Register - it's the LAW!" t-shirt the other day.

I know that insurance is not mandatory (I believe it should be) - but surely people join the BMFA (etc) in order to be insured ... and since you can't NOT register [and subsequently operate a drone] without breaking the law, any such insurance becomes void. In which case, what is the point in joining the BMFA?

Its not necessarily the case that not being registered is going to void the BMFA insurance.

But you can't insure an illegal activity. So if you fly without registering, which is a legal requirement, then your insurance is obviously invalid.

I think the requirement was to register by end of the month - so not breaking any laws yet :) Well not that one anyway.

Still a f^&k up by ones in charge of implementing the schemes. And another clear indication it is mismanaged.

So here is an easier to absorb version of the July 2020 legal implications and restrictions

http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/CAP1789%20EU%20UAS%20Regulations-Guidance.pdf

Most of my models will fall into the A3 C3 C4 and homebuilt category.

When "easier to absorb" is still a 32 page document you know you have a problem.

That is clear as mud!! So many if this then that and exceptions. This will put people off getting into the hobby, be them potential aircraft or 'drone' pilots.
I guess as these regs were made 'EU law' before/if we leave they will still come in to effect?

Its actually much clearer compared to the original from the EASA. With regards to Brexit, this was covered in a Q&A with the CAA. The answer given was that if the UK wishes to participate in manufacturing,  exporting and importing aircraft parts and services, entering EASA air space it will need to comply with all EASA/EU regulations governing the industry. So the answer is yes it will effect us in the British Isles. However, certain aspects of the legislation are still open to local changes. For example the age of operator, de regulation of certified flying sites operated by registered associations, the ability of registered associations to carry out training and examination etc.

So a  Sunday Flyer who also takes part in the occasional public show and competition , a  BMFA member flying at a BMFA club owning and flying a number of home built and RTF fixed wing models I will be in A2 A3 class
