    400feet is the most ridicoulos thing in Germany most areas are Airspace G (mostly 1000feet). It makes no sense to own a big(ger)Sailplane because of these stupid laws. And what about foreigners like me (If I would travel to UK)?

    Good information, thank you. But you don't really need to copy Peter McKinnon. Do your own thing

    So all of this already happens in the USA. We have to register the drone with the FAA for $5 for leisure, and if you want to get a commercial license, it is much more and you have to pass a long test. Rules over here are keep it under 400 feet and keep it line of sight. And the DJI app will prevent you from flying some places do to restricted flight zones. I see not have an issue with all of these rules. I still feel like all the laws and rules for UAVs are fairly relaxed. One day, someone will do something VERY stupid with a drone and it will ruin it for the rest of us.

    Police have powers now ….

    Just no staff!!

    The CAA have no interest in drones or the potential business they make the whole process for commercial operation obtuse and very costly. But most of all despite being given direct evidence of unlicensed commercial opperators they do NOTHING!!!!!! so very simply I would operate under all the safety aspects of the ANO but not bother with the PFCO until the CAA start supporting the law abiding holders. If they prosicute and you have followed all the safety mitigation and process they will only be able to pursue you on the grounds of not paying a 'tax'.

    Does this apply to fixed wing too? You know, the bigger, faster, heavier models we fly that can't stop and loiter if there's a problem? No? Just the scary 'drones'.

    Although i dont really have a problem with the proposed law, most of it is common sense that people should already be observing. i dont think for a moment that it will address any of the problems they say it is intended to solve. The type of individuals who have created the concern are still not going to adhere to it! its just going to make it more expensive and complicated for genuine sensible users. As for insurance yes i can see that its a sensible idea sort of! but pedal cycles and horses on the roads here cause untold property damage in accidents every year not to mention deaths, and thats before we take things like skateboards (motorised or not) in to account. will they be forcing third party insurance requirements on cyclists and horse riders etc? I think not! This seems to be a clear case of uk government ill conceived knee jerk legislation to me, something they excel at!

    I am concerned for long range fpv flight. I can comfortably and sensibly control my drone over a 2km distance but in certain conditions cannot maintain a line of sight. I know my equipment well, and how to handle it well, and for me the most interesting aspect of drones is the ability to fly and see where you normally can't. I would love an exemption, tested or otherwise, for competent fpv recreational 'pilots' to be able to enjoy their hobby (safely) without line of sight. A reliable GPS module and return to home features should allow for this, but I just can't see the government understanding that if they aren't hobbyists themselves, and what's the chance of that?

    I few over a police station in Northern Ireland last night and the police were at my door within 5 minutes of  landing it in my back garden. Amusingly they didn't have a clue to the regulations and had to contact their base to fine out. Obviously my drone posed a security risk hence their visit.

    Hopefully they wont make the rules so stupid that you cant fly in most places I recently got a drone about 2months ago, there are lots of places I consider to fly, checking the nats app helps, but if we are to take a test and register then, more places should except those registered drone operators, easier like national trust parks etc, and not have restrictions.

    The way it works is to make these things appear reasonable. You think well that's 'reasonable'. Reasonable rules, reasonable fee etc. Then every year or every time some idiot does something stupid (who probably isn't registered anyway) they make the rules more and more ridiculous in response to the drama that is the media in this country and also start cashing in on a new source of revenue for doing nothing except ruining your hobby.

    The "government" has no authority anyhow. LAW comes FROM THE PEOPLE, NOT some asshats who are PUT in (you think your vote means anything)? As long as you are sensible and don't DELIBERATELY hurt others, there is no crime. If you DO cause someone a problem, you are obliged to apologise and offer to make things right HONOURABLY, oh, but that would imply there is such a thing as HONOUR left these days.
