Or to put it another way, making it easy to find and prosecute those who register.
And whilst they are at it, giving the over-stretched Police even less time to catch the real baddies.

This whole half baked business will do nothing to promote safe flying compared to what the likes of the BMFA has been promoting for years with training and safety award schemes. You pass the online idiot based test, you pays your money and then, whoopee, you are safe to fly.
(BTW other responsible modelling organisations exist too.)
Well said.
This stupid system is only being introduced to enable the gov to sell off the airspace to the likes of Amazon and plicate the public after the Gatwick mess.

  . I can regularly get 8kms flight distance on my 5 Inch Quad.
  Add in a GPS and rescue mode and you have a go anywhere filming platform with potentially considerable range using real LR gear.
   
                 

                                                                                               :vulture:

And thatís the problem right there. But registration and an open book test is not going to stop it unless a way is found to control the sale of radio equipment.

Let me give you a practical example involving me yesterday. I was playing golf at my private club which is boundaried by houses and farm land. Some Charley was flying one of those VTOL wings over the course at less than 150 ft, and not very well either. It went on for some time, on and off for over 2 hours. Very annoying to me and other players. I learnt this morning that a call was made to the police who attended and discovered it was being flown from the rugby club car park adjacent to the course. Donít know what action was taken. But if it wound me up, imagine what it does to non modellers.

  Hi BigT,
                Hit the nail on the head right there....Some Charlie, so probably NOT a BMFA member or someone capable and competent who would not dream of flying even near a Golf Course, let alone over it.
  Same goes for the real idiots overflying the Airports.....and our own Government see this as an opportunity to Tax every BMFA Member and anyone else foolish enough to aid and abet their stupid scheme.
  Meantime, the real culprits go scot free....ruining it for us all.

                                                                                                :vulture:
