Quote from: lanicopter on December 20, 2018, 12:25:40 pmNo doubt the people who don't fly over Gatwick will be punished. I can guarantee you that you will not find an FPV pilot anywhere who thinks this is funny or acceptable. The person(s) in charge of those aircraft need to be dealt with harshly.
Quote from: lanicopter on December 20, 2018, 12:58:32 pmPerhaps I should fly a balsa plane over Gatwick - it's certainly easy enough to do. Will you still be actively seeking a ban?As I say, this is a problem with the idiots in charge of the aircraft - not the aircraft themselves. The person in charge needs to be punished, and punished harshly. I don't - it wasn't me.
Quote from: lanicopter on December 20, 2018, 20:09:39 pmAs I said in the other thread, I feel the ban after Dunblane was a silly reaction and I'm sure you'd have preferred to have kept your hobby.Drones are being treat the same way which is also ridiculous because they have many legal uses and are a rewarding pastime to the VAST majority of people. We shouldn't allow the actions of a few morons dictate how the world treats the majority of its citizens.
Quote from: lanicopter on December 20, 2018, 21:10:48 pmExactly - and it's rubbish. If we start banning everything what will we have left? We need a proportional response - this idiot should have the book thrown at him (using the existing regulations which absolutely prohibit this behaviour).

Quote from: lanicopter on December 21, 2018, 15:32:43 pmGenius marketing idea actually! International coverage for the sake of purchasing a relatively cheap drone and flying it around for a couple of hours...
Quote from: PDR on December 23, 2018, 10:01:25 am...and as you can see - it's 'kin miles from where the public wait wit their phone-cameras and the airside areas where they said the drone(s) were operating...PDR
Quote from: itsme on December 23, 2018, 10:14:30 amIts actually 3k from the terminal to the end of the runway, even if you had a direct line of sight (which you dont) which puts any drone around 4-5 k. You would need a bloody good telephoto lens to see that. Ooops its gone...
Quote from: needforspeeduk on December 24, 2018, 16:46:57 pmIt seems the main "suspect" was a local Model Flyer (and his missus) who happened to have an old photo of a model Hughes 300 in his Facebook profile. The boys in blue at their best. Fills you with confidence for when we have to register our models next year.
Quote from: lanicopter on December 24, 2018, 18:25:43 pmNovember 2019 will require registrations.
