What a total SPUD! I have nothing to add.  :angry:

"they didn';t seem concerned" - well, the Royal Navy are sufficiently badass to not give a fig about a Parot drone  :laugh:

And there is a report allegedly quoting the owner/pilot as it being a Phantom 4.

Whilst there are RN Personnel on board, technically she';s still a civilian ship until she is commissioned later this year...making the security of the vessel the responsibility of the contractor..BAE Systems!

The pilot is a member of this group: https://www.facebook.com/BlackIsleImages/ but I see they have pulled the video from their pages now.
However NONE of his flights are withing legal guidelines! (IMHO)

What he did is currently illegal, so in reality we don';t need any new laws.
From what I have read the new proposed laws won';t change stupid people doing illegal things.
I agree that the new laws are stupid but we can try to be as polite and friendly to ';the uninformed public" as we can. I know some of the public need educating but we need to be respectful even if they are not.
Happy stress free flying.
