You can thank all idiots flying FPV between buildings in NY, over populated areas all over the place, and intercepting comercial jets while they were taking off or landing.. And then are so stupid that show their videos on Youtube so the authorities can see what they have done and are so proud about.. Some flying over 800 meters, or even higher, right where real aircraft with REAL people inside fly.. Something has to be done to stop them before a disaster occurs. The problem is that the people that behave themselves will also get it unfortunately.. :(
Ahh, and the government see here a chance of getting lots of money in fees.
So, thank you idiots..

ahh yes, now I'm connecting :mrgreen:
It doesn't have to be RC, it can be automated, a Drone Monkey.. Maybe Mike could write the firmware for it :P ;) :mrgreen:
But then it would need a registration number as it might weight over 250 gramms :mrgreen:

Now Ireland have done the same thing requiring registration: https://www.iaa.ie/general-aviation/dro ... gistration.
While it says "drones", it applies to all model aircraft.
It even looks like each individual model needs to be registered, possibly at 5 euros a time!
They also seem to be imposing blanket flight restrictions like "below 120m", and "not further than 300m from the pilot".
Even small model under 1kg look to only be exempt if flown below 15m.

Mike.

Edit:
1) No "Toffee bombers" ((g) permitting or attempting to permit, any article or animal, whether or not attached to a parachute to be released from that aircraft.)
2) Seems to apply to free flight as well, so how do they do "(3) Small unmanned aircraft shall give way to manned aircraft."

The difficult we do immediately,

I think Europe will welcome that idea very much, but as usual it will make it even worse..
But I can't blame the aeronautical community. They are concerned about their safety and the safety of all of us that fly in real aircraft.
Something has to be done to stop the idiots..

Problem with all of these sort of registration systems is that they only punish the good guys.

Lets face it. If you dont register and you cause an accident. Odds are you will not be found.

You need a licence to drive. Yet the 'bad guys' just ignore that. Enfd result is the same.

Good guys have red tape. Bad guys do wtf they want
Slope Soaring, FPV, and pretty much anything 'high tech'
...........if you think it should be in the wiki.. ask me for wiki access, then go add it!

And... the regular police really have time to police it?

The problem with drones is that it is exceptionally hard to catch someone breaking the law. (In the act )

Registration will only punish the guys who already stick to the rules.


I had a funny incident the other day.

I was flying LOS Angeles skywalker fpv model. Just initial test flights to check everything was setup correctly at my local field.

As luck or bad luck would have it my esc died. The model went into failsafe and circled away in a gentle glide - eventually landing in a small business estate.

I took a walk across to retrieve / check if any damage etc. By the time I get there (about 5 minutes ) the police had already been called.

Joe public thought it was clearly terrorist related because the model had a camera on it!

The up side. The police asked me a few questions. Was it line of site. How far from the built up area where you flying etc. .. then said. No problem. On with your business as nothing illegal had been done.

I was rather pleased that the police involved had a rudimentary knowledge of the law and dismissed the paranoid public members fears.

True. And this will lead to model flying being banned everywhere. I hope when the time comes they just ban cameras on models, and not model flying.

I don't think that is likely the case.

Here in the UK the caa are quite aware of the risks and work with the model flyers.

Regulation is inevitable. But an outright ban. Highly unlikely.

I would think if model flying is banned and/or without cameras, then all cameras would be required to be registered
and/or banned in the world.

When the USA constitution is done away with, then there will be an end to freedom everywhere on earth.
Federal and State US leader are not following the US Constitution nowadays, they are subverting US Constitution.
They do still have a little fear of the American people awaken up and putting them in prison for there evil.
National Socialism (small groups of dictators) is growing around the world, it is just called different names today.
Anyway, in order to promote National Socialism, non-issues (non-problems) are created and engineered so that new restrictive rules,
laws, regulations to restrict and control over what are normal peoples rights and freedoms.

Most, if not all airport RC sightings in the US are from the RC Club flying at there local airport field which have permission to fly at there local airport.
I have not been able to find and many other people have not been able to find legitimate justification for RC registration in the US.

I don't like the 400 feet limit, my electric glider is often up over 1000 feet.

My take, if there is a mountain near by then its 400 feet above that mountain.
Being the model starts at the top of the mountain.

That's why in the UK there is a cap exemption.

In the UK you can happily fly over 400 ft. But we are talking line of site.

I personally have a view that there is a big question that needs to be put to the powers.

In the UK you have a caa restriction of 60m line for any kite being flown. This is to stop you entering air space of a full size craft.

Now... how fast can you retract your kite if a full size arrives?

With this in mind... should spotter less fpv be allowed with aircraft below 250g and less that 60m altitude?

Here, if I'm not mistaken, aircraft should not fly under 2000ft except for taking off, landing and some other special occasions like training and aerobatics.

I do not believe in other places it is allowed aircraft flying much lower than that..

So, maybe the 400ft restriction should be applied at a certain distance from airfields, and a complete ban within a closer distance from the airfields.
Everywhere else, the restriction should be the same (or a bit lower) as the lowest allowed altitude for manned aircraft.
The good thing about having a club field is that the closest airfields normally formally know about it. That's the case of my club.
When training new pilots at low altitude the instructors know about us and avoid our place, most of the times.. Another problem are the balloons. But if you don't see them you shouldn't be flying models,never mind FPV ;) :)

The problem starts when people do not fly within a club and go fly somewhere else. Instructors don't have a way of knowing that models are flying in a certain area, and people flying the models don't go to read the NOTAMs at the local airfield. This can be catastrophic, if a model hits a plane training at low altitude..
Aviation is a bit more complicated than most of the people think. It is not just wearing some goggles and a camera, takeoff, and pretend we are pilots.. it takes much more than that to be a pilot, and if we want to fly among the real pilots (share the same airspace) we must have at least the same amount of knowledge. Otherwise is a complete disrespect for the lives of the people flying up there..

AFAIK the big ones (here in Germany) should fly over 2500 ft. In some areas (e.g. near big airports) they are allowed to fly lower.

We (model pilots) are not allowed to fly nearer than 1,5 km to an airport (without control zone) without permission.
Concerning an airport with control zone you mustn't enter this zone (except you have permission to).

Where those control zones (here in Europe) are you can see e.g. here (note: it's not an official site).

I thought it was 2000ft, at least for light aircraft..

Yes, those rules are ok.. At least they know about us, and we know what we are supposed to do or not..
But you normally need to be in a club to know these things, or be a pilot yourself.. At least as a FPF flyer, you should know what is the maximum allowed altitude for model aircraft in the area you're flying. that is the minimum requirement. Of course the idiots don't want to know and don't give a s**t about it..

That's the problem.

I do know about those things 'cause our flying site lies in the outer rim of a control zone.
We have an agreement with the airport for over 40 years and have the order to watch for
manned aircrafts in order to fly at a very low level as long as a manned aircraft crosses our site.
This are very rare situations 'cause we are outside of the corridors for approach/departure...

Also there are licensed pilots in our club (some even from the military part of the airport).
