Quote from: cymaz on December 26, 2018, 08:17:46 am We won't we far behind ....come the summer/autumn. As I see it, anything that flies over 250g will need to be registered
Quote from: itsme on December 26, 2018, 08:21:15 amYou have some evidence of this, I take it? Because I cant find any legislation like that.
Quote from: Michael_Rolls on December 26, 2018, 10:42:34 amOn another forum - not a modelling one - I have seen a post claiming that 'most' drones have infra red cameras - can't find anything to support such a claim - but are there drones with IR capability at the hobby end of the market?Mike
Quote from: paulinfrance on December 25, 2018, 15:17:20 pm...and the registration must be visible at 30cm ( a lot of F**g good that is )
Quote from: firefox on December 26, 2018, 14:16:54 pmAnd a criminal is going to put a number on their drone?Like they are going to want to be traceable.
Quote from: Michael_Rolls on December 26, 2018, 14:19:48 pmExactly - usual politician;s rubbish solution, Why do they continue to act as though criminals will obey the law?Mike
Quote from: FrankS on December 26, 2018, 14:59:17 pm, i.e. in future we will only be able to fly models from registered sites, then the authorities know anybody flying outside of these is acting unlawfully.
Quote from: lanicopter on December 27, 2018, 10:08:12 amNah - flying sites are needed for larger planes, but there's noone who's going to join a club solely to fly a Bixler there.
Quote from: itsme on December 27, 2018, 10:15:35 amI know someone who gets his kicks flying around lonely hills and mountains taking pictures no one else has even seen. He does no harm, is nowhere near any area he should not fly and never needs to be 400 feet above. Why should he be restricted to a flying site because of the actions of morons? Make some highly public arrests and make examples of them, and it will all go away.
Quote from: Bad Raven on December 29, 2018, 08:06:41 amSOOOOO far from my experience.
Quote from: FrankS on December 29, 2018, 08:47:15 amAgree entirely, but todate they haven't caught a single person who's flown a drone near an airliner or airport.But then again they don't have any hard evidence to identify the drone, I am surprised with the number of videos from full sized plane cabins that at least one have been video'd by now. I also can't understand why "dashcams" are not fitted to airliners so any sightings can be verified.
Quote from: PDR on December 30, 2018, 21:31:51 pmA whisper that I've heard is that they suspect/believe that the offending craft were flying autonomously, with no comms operating while over the airport.That would make them difficult to track using the C2 signal.PDR
Quote from: chaz2b on January 01, 2019, 09:53:53 amGetting back to the "drone sightings", I do want to know what the size of drone they found, and at what distance were the sightings seen from.I have four drones of varying sizes, and believe me, you don't have to fly far for them to get very tiny!People who do not fly rc aircraft may not have the depth perception of small craft that we do, and therefore may perceive the sightings as being further away than they actually are.
Quote from: andyone on January 01, 2019, 22:52:56 pmRTH data could prove very useful if the authorities could get there quickly or there are witnesses in the area.
