Interesting going with linear on a quad on 5.8. That's what circular was designed for all the multipath problems associated with it.

If you think about it a liquid fuel has a container, the tank. A lipo is the electrical equivalent of a tank, it stores the fuel.
So a lipo, the electrical storage tank, has the same weight charged as discharged.

So I think 250 gms includes lipo.

ET ...  I was always under the impression that the "all up weight" included the fuel (i.e. the battery) because that is what would hit you in the face and as such is what actually counts in terms of destructive ability.

Whilst the 250g limit is currently the get-out-of-registration-free card it's important to realise that every other law associated with "Drone" flying is still relevant.  So it doesn't get you out of the spotter rule, or the must-keep-vlos, height rules etc etc.  Whether you chose to follow all or any of them is a completely different subject.

It's all well and good arguing but I think that the weight is more the issue and since a lipo doesn't lose weight as it depletes, it probably should be counted.

I wish it wasn't though, it would make sub 250g much easier ... but you can't really say a plane is sub 250g if it weighs 250g but is carrying a 180g lipo....

  Hi Steve,

                  (a) "small unmanned aircraft with a mass of less than 250 grams without their fuel"

              Maybe someone has amended the meaning of "Without" in the English Dictionary and not told anyone..? Clearly the clown who wrote it does not have a command of the English language either...."withouts its fuel"

  Whether you take off with liquid fuel or a Lipo, they both have weight and should be counted as such, why should liquid fuel be discounted on the basis that it depletes during the flight? An accident at take off and the extra weights are comparable are they not..? As I said, its ambiguous at best, but the text in red above suits me fine.

                                                                                              :vulture:
