All Remaining 2020 Events Cancelled

The Board decided last night that due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, coupled with whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable and should be pronounced 'tomato' or 'tomato' it was safer to call the whole thing off. In addition to Cosford, Elvington, Much Marcle & Gaydon are all cancelled and w...

Re: Flying

You've all got mail.

Basically, if you decide to go flying, don't go to meet anyone from outside your household. If other people are there it's no different to other people playing a round of golf or being in the park at the same time as you. Maintain social distancing from anyone else.

Re: CAD designer needed please

Cad software is free, and 2D will be easier to learn than 3D for making a model drawing.

A rough estimate of my time to do some cad drawing came out at £12,000 (no vat) which is probably a bit spendy for a model plane.

Re: igyro 3e

Glen, you can test the gain by wiggling the gyro and seeing how much the connected servo moves. Zero gain, not moves at all, max gain moves a lot. movement should increase as gain increases. What I've done is set the gain dial to only go from zero to +100%, not -100% to +100%. That way, you can only...

Re: Buckminster fly in

Flyins are not ‘normal outdoor flying activities', they are specifically organised to get a group of people together to do a bit of flying and mainly socialise for several days/a week at a time. Many of our flyin attendees are in the ‘at risk’ group who are being advised to self-isolate for the next...

Re: CAA Operator I.D...what did we pay for

Don't care. Don't know. Yes, I'm not making it up. There's one registered drone operator for about every 600 people in the UK, so they are probably in the towns, villages, fields and valleys too.

Re: Flyer ID

after june you will only be legal to fly if you do the test online. No that is not correct. After June we will be flying under an 'Article 16' operating authorisation that will also cover remote pilot competency. That will not include everyone having to do the CAA online test.
