Any chance of an official statement from the BMFA and Ofcom with regards to this?

Think that will get a few people worked up 😄
BMFA have asked Ofcom for a definitive statement regarding control of a UAV by 868 MHz as it effects  the viability of the members insurance and advice it can give on legal operation of UAV. Worth mentioning that just because equipment conforms  to a prescribed standard doesn’t mean it is legal to use for any purpose.

The 300 meter between tx and Rx comes from the Ofcom document no the BMFA. (Wayne, why the antithesis towards the BMFA and not the LMA or JMA?)

I refer you guys to this statement of EU conformity that TBS have on the radio equipment now http://www.team-blacksheep.com/doc_ce/id:1710

Is the suggestion that a piece of equipment can adhere to all the necessary standard to get such a document, along with a CE kite mark and still be illegal to use?

Clear as mud seems to be the apt description, with the statement from the BMFA throwing in 300m from nowhere - c'mon BMFA, citations please ?

I'm certainly no legal expert in these matters, and nor should I have to be.  We can get the cheap unlicensed stuff from China, but when we have the CE mark, it's supposed to be approved - simple as that.  If there's something wrong here, then more simple straightforward language needs to be used.

Go to a race meet and look at the amount of people on Crossfire, it's very much already here - and I don't see anyone getting kicked off the field for using 868 over 2.4.

I remain confused - even when you try and do the right thing, barriers pop up everywhere

Hi folks!

I've just received another set of radio modules for my latest model, but they are loaded with version 1.9 of the Sik firmware. I already have four other models running 1.6 that work fine with my existing ground module also running 1.6.

Problem is that the 1.9 air module won't work with the 1.6 ground module and I don't want to rip-out all my other air modules to update everything to 1.9 (or 2.0 as Mission Planner wants to do).

Anybody know if it's possible to get older versions of the firmware from somewhere?

Cheers!

Chris

Well Steve in the opinion of the BMFA, LMA and the PR dept of Ofcom it is illegal for RC Model Control and for other uses if the tx and rx are more than 300m apart. As far as the BMFA are concerned they vihinkew its use the same as 433 so insurance and legal support would be void.

Any chance of an official statement from the BMFA and Ofcom with regards to this?

Think that will get a few people worked up ;D

Interesting. Never saw the requirement about 300m.

So if this is the case what are ofcom doing about the crossfire and R9 ?

Think we had 10-12 FPV planes, and goggles all set up for people to use. Most just chose not to. It was a bit much for them with head tracking and the limited FOV from the cockpit.

If you couldnt tell, i really enjoyed flying it FPV haha.

Obv in the edit they didnt show my kills. In the last battle, where the Germans scored first blood, that was actually me shooting down friendlys. I couldnt tell who was who and i just shot anything that moved. So the first two kills where from me, they just happened to be on my own team mates.  :laugh:

You did look like you enjoyed it :)
I did notice that there was quite limited views available from the tracking cameras, one was blocked at the top by instruments!
I doubt they will make the program again but they could learn so much from this program.
You must have has soo much fun, did you get to keep anything?
Did you get your own footage via dvr?

As for your blue on blue (friendly fire) I bet it was very common in the actual battle.
Sort of gives you a slither of info about the battle. Must have been so stressful knowing that there were other pilots trying to shoot you down while you do the same!

You should feel proud to have been part of the program.

Watched the last part last night. It was great. Seeing all those models 'swarming' over the sky, I can't imagine how difficult that was LOS. They really did need more fpv pilots there but judging by most of the people there the show would have had to provide goggles as well as all the planes/lipos etc.
It was interesting to see the original tactics and the difficult in pulling that off.
Can't imagine the actual pilots difficulty and fear!!!!

A new spot to fly.  More trees, more ghost branches and more broken quads including my new ESC going up in flames.
