Re: twin battery and one reciever

You can, John, but when you have gone to that level, why not two receivers? Oh- and as the weakest link is always the switch, two switches?

Re: Cosford 2019 Review

The CAA’s development plan for the Drone Registration Scheme sets the minimum age of registering for operators as 18. This is on the basis that:  The Government’s consultation response published in January 2019 highlighted that it supports the introduction of a minimum age of 18 for operators and n...

Re: Cosford 2019 Review

Well. I didnt make it this year, but as far as I can see, this is all a massive improvement. The 2nd line seems to have been a hit, and with tweaks as per the posts here, it will improve the whole Cosford experience, what with the swapmeet, the younger guys showing their incredible skills offset by ...

Re: DB 1/4 scale Sopwiyh Pup & SE5

It will be ballistic on a 38. Fair enough you can throttle it. I used to use both mixing and diff for ailerons on my Pup as the ailerons are not very responsive. (Gain a bit of height and speed for a roll!) They fly great, but landings need a bit of getting the speed right to avoid nose overs.

Re: Drone register petition

The worst point is that the government has given the DfT millions to set this up, and they have to make that money back. £16.50 is not anywhere near enough.

Re: Drone register petition

It actually takes 100,000 votes to get a mention in Parliament. (usually late at night with three people in there) Absolutely pointless. Give your MP a piece of your mind instead.

Re: Drone register petition

It detracts from the email complaints, and gives people the idea they have done their bit, while really it would take far more than the number of model fliers there actually are to do anything.

Re: new registration rebellion

I'm not sure how the liability insurance would cover the 'actions of members', in that scenario. I dont think I would like to take responsibility for some of our members!

Re: new registration rebellion

We have been pushing that view since day one Glenn. It is simply ignored by the DfT. They have ruled that we are all the same. 6,000 people emailed their objections to this, it should have been 35,000. Oddly enough, the same percentage of club members who actually do anything to help run a club... :...

Makes my blood boil. Sorry to hear about that, Transit parts are stolen and shipped abroad in containers, its big business. Hopefully the models will be found dumped.

Re: new registration rebellion

Could the combined offices of the LMA and BMFA mount a legal challenge, citing the onerous burden and cost of running a duplicated system for no benefit, and the disregarding of the government's own (and E U) published guidance. There may also be a case that these regulations remove a freedom, and ...

Re: new registration rebellion

about what I thought. It has to be so pathetic that everyone actually passes, its just to make sure you have read the regs.
Question 2: can I fly my drone a) in the supermarket? b) on the M1? or c) in a field miles from anywhere.

Re: new registration rebellion

Glad to hear. I can just imagine what the CAA office junior would make up. At least that will be something we could actually make use of.
