Quote from: bunnygirl80 on Wednesday,March 06, 2013, 15:28:16 Hi guys,As many of you know I have been flying planes for over 15 years now. I am a member of the BMFA (British Model Flying Association) and fly to the standards of their A and B achievement schemes. The BMFA currently have certificates for Fixed Wing and Helicopters, BUT not for Multi Rotors. This afternoon, I spoke with Andy Simmons who is the BMFA Achievement Scheme Committee Secretary who informed me that they are currently looking into this and in discussions with the CAA. This is something that they will be discussing further in their next meeting on the 16 March. He told me that it will take a while to put a certificate together, but all being well the MR scheme will be launched 1st January 2014.Stef

There are a few thinks to sort out first, there is an issue with Multi-rotor failsafe settings and complying with CAP658, although BMFA are discussing that with the CAA. We have to look at ensuring we are testing the pilot and not the electronics too. Although the BMFA Multi-rotor/FPV specialist interest group will be able to provide input for that. That said at the moment I don';t see any reason why an "A" will take too long to appear.

Quote from: pheasant_plucker on Saturday,November 09, 2013, 19:29:39 Ok but they are not the national body so their test doesn';t carry the same clout as the BMFA one would! Would it be worth the paper it';s written on?Gerry
