One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.


Its a tough problem for the CAA (and I have a very good friend who';s an ATC who says the same). The problem is that the genie is out of the bottle - so this stuff will continue to increase in popularity. Its quite like the problems that occured as powerful laser pointers became cheap. We can only hope that the few who are morons won';t end up imposing heavy restrictions on the rest of us (though reading the hoops for commercial approval, the ';Can';t Allow Aviation'; approach is very evident...)


Had the same thing happen in ';68 when I was in Air Traffic.  Six foot wingspan model passed down the side of an inbound airliner on short finals.  Modeller found operating from nearby beach .  Nicked under the ANO for endangering aircraft. Received a heavy fine (for those days).
Could well be 2k or more today.  :sick:
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

Plus jail time and a criminal record....

There is an upper fine limit, I think it';s 6 grand off the top of my head.  It came up as a question on the BNUC.

Sooner or later it will happen here -  then - expect CAA registration (and it will probably cost as well) and that';s from a mate  in the know!

Reminds me of Airsoft. Back years ago you could walk into a shop and buy an Airsoft gun anywhere. Only law was don';t get it out in public.

Then they were bringing in a law to completely ban imitation firearms, all airsofter kicked off about it and all the shops.

But both side worked a way to keep airsoft as a sport going, so RIF';s (real Imitation Firearms) were still completely banned to buy, sell, import and make RIF';s unless you could prove you were a airsofter.

A group made an organization that would register you at your local site that you attended 3 times in so many months, and you had to renew every year.

But this wasn';t official or anything, was just a way to make sure no one broke the law and ruined the sport.
