I'm Done
« on: May 06, 2019, 01:08:35 PM »

Im done buying any new quads or fpv gear until i know how and where the hobby is going.
It seems the establishment are trying to destroy the hobby or tax it into obscurity.
For the 1st time i 've thought about selling up as well, I dont want to be looking over my shoulder for a member of propaganda controlled public
to have a ago at me when i'm flying responsible due to negative media.

I'm going to fly sub 250g things after November which means I have a boatload of kit which is surplus to requirements.

Nobody wants to be on a list, and nobody wants to pay 16.50 "fun tax" for the displeasure of doing so.  However, I'm not about to give up on something I love for the sake of 16.50 - and whilst I don't like the idea of being on a list, I'm also fairly confident about the media eventually finding something else to be outraged about and leaving us alone.... by which time the hobby will be thinned out as people won't want to get into it with the additional regulation in place

If you are innocent - and abiding by all the rules and regulations - (however daft some of them may be)

Then - you have nothing to be afraid of.

Did you not see how the couple close to Gatwick were treated????
The guy didn't even own a 'drone' yet he was arrested and virtually every paper had his and his partners face plastered all over the front pages!!! Think about it, would you risk being interviewed without a solicitor present even though you knew you were 100% innocent? I doubt I would, so that also means having to pay to prove your innocence!!!

This was before there was a list!!!! Imagine how many people the Police will 'visit' if they have a list of 'suspects' should someone do something stupid with a 'drone'!!!

Good reason not to register I think.

I won't be registering ... 1,000 fine for standing in an empty field with an "unregistered" piece of polysterene? Hopefully any magistrate would see how stupid that is.
