Is it illegal? There seems to be a grey area

Statement I received today from the BMFA Technical and Legal dept

" 868 is an unlicensed frequency but has strict rules. Distance is supposed to be no more than 300 metres...Please don't make the common mistake, there is NO such thing as unlicensed spectrum in the UK. Bands like 433MHz, 868MHz, 2.4GHz are license exempt. This means if you stick to the license published by Ofcom (in a Standard Instrument - i.e. an Act of Parliament), you don't need a specific license (which you would be very unlikely to get in license except bands).

Generally the SI contains a list of technical requirements such as channel size, max power (ERP or EIRP) etc. Also the requirement may be that all equipment is CE marked. There are variances for running tech trials (such as in 868MHz, however systems must not be more than 300m apart). It is possible to get a test license from Ofcom to do more realistic testing in real world environments and these cost around £50 (maybe per piece of equipment). 300 meters means the distance from tx to rx.  Responsibility for assigning frequencies to this Allocation rests with Ofcom.  Frequencies in this Allocation are exclusively assigned for emergency services use.  Further information on emergency service use can be found in the document  “Frequencies for Emergency Services in the UK”.

So in my opinion 868 MHz  is not legal for recreational model aircraft flying.

Neat install, is that everything going in it ?

 Hi Ian,
            Thanks, yes, for now anyway. The only weak link I think may be the VTX, I may need to put a proper 5.8G vtx in it. It's a small model and the F405 Wing FC makes for an easy (lightweight) install.
  It's rather tight on space in the Lipo bay TBH, but it should still be capable of say an 18 km duration, which is plenty.
Hoping to Maiden it next Tuesday all being well when this wind drops.

                                                                                                :vulture:

Agreed, as soon as i saw the final product i knew i must have one. The weathering just takes it to the next level.

Currently printing it at 200% :D

Had to borrow my mates printer to be able to print it big enough. The rib cage only just fits on diagonally on its 30x30cm bed.

Simon does the best projects, I liked the rc car on water using 3D printed paddle wheels he did too.

I like the weathering he does, that's clever, turns out spot on.
