RC Flight Chatter / Re: New regulations
Last post by Raymond - January 01, 2021, 20:05:13 pm
Yes, I've already emailed the BMFA as their site doesnt really say where you can fly

I only fly when there's nobody else around anyway but my concern is a flyaway ..

I only had one bad one with a zagi that disappeared and landed quite a bit away right beside someone digging in an allotment. He duly returned it with a smile and said here's your toy plane it landed about three feet from me. I cringed as he handed me the 10 cell pack that could've killed him and that was an approved club site ouch

That's the rose-tinted version. A more objective description would be that he's an opinionated moron who believes he can ignore any rules as long as (in his own opinion) he's "acting safely".

He's a prat, but even if we overlook that tiny detail it should be obvious that he's a bad source to check for guidance on the implementation of rules.

He's also in New Zealand, where they have different rules issued by a different set of authorities.

Ask the BMFA - it's the advice you've already paid for...

And for the real facts check with the BMFA. Bruce tends to rant on about things he has heard rumours about but doesn't really check the actual facts.

Happy New year all

It's been 10 years since I used to hang out here and though I haven't done any club flying for almost that long I do fly my hlg, small electrics and a drone in quiet places and the dunes

I stumbled across the new regs last year and paid my money and got the flyer ID then recently saw a few articles and when  I read into them it says I can't fly over 250g within 150m of a recreational area which appears to rule out the slope on a public footpath I use, parks and even the beach or am I being too pedantic ?
I did a few searches building see any discussions here ?

Click on your user name in the box on the left (above the bit where you click for Show Unread, Show Replies etc) or just click on your name in any of your posts. Then hover the pointer over the "forum Profile" tab and click on "forum profile" in the resulting drop-down list - the settings ypu're after are on that page.

Flash is now officially "dead".  Before uninstalling it, I just wondered if this would have any deleterious effect on the RCMF Group which I believe has evolved in a somewhat idiosyncratic style over many years?

Yes. Click on your user name in the box on the left (above the bit where you click for Show Unread, Show Replies etc). Then select the "forum Profile" tab. On there you can change your details & password, but you will need to enter your current password to "authorise" the changes.

If you have forgotten your current password you can PM Gerry (Pheasant Plucker) to get it reset. If you have forgotten your password but usually log in automatically using Chrome you can get Chrome to tell you what the saved password is (it's in the Settings page).

Hope that helps.
