Quote from: UrbanFPV on Wednesday,November 13, 2019, 18:26:04 Saw a post on rotorriot just now, that no drone laws have actually been passed or gained royal assent. Since this wont happen till after gen election, there wont be anything illegal about flying without registering.Hope this is true haven't actually fact checked it, but there is a strong possibility that it's correct.
Quote from: ched on Wednesday,November 13, 2019, 18:48:19 Looks interesting.I had a very quick look:Is this the bill? https://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/droneregulationno2.htmlIt does say No2 (2017-2019)?Looks like the first version https://services.parliament.uk/Bills/2017-19/droneregulation.htmldidn't progress through parliament either!!!
Quote from: UrbanFPV on Thursday,November 14, 2019, 10:49:01 The situation will be, that they basically can't demand that you show registration or stop and search you, or issue on the spot fines. You can simply refuse to provide that information quite legally. If you are not being detained, you can simply walk away and they won't be able to investigate you very easily. There will be much more paperwork to do so.
Quote from: Andy7 on Thursday,November 14, 2019, 14:23:13 I'd say that because we all here fly safely and responsibly, the only real interaction with the law that would make me 'worried' at all is that of complaints of trespass when flying bandos and the like.
Quote from: Two-Six on Saturday,November 16, 2019, 11:38:54 The rules say: "This article applies to a flight by a small unmanned aircraft only if it has a mass of 250 grams or more without its fuel but including any articles or equipment installed in or attached to the aircraft at the commencement of its flight.Does this mean that the battery is included in the weight threshold or not. The battery is fuel isn't it?If the battery is included as equipment like cameras or hand grenades this is another example of the off-the-charts stupidity of the new regulations.I am not registering this year and I probably won't re-join the BMFA either. My local club lost its field last spring and the prospect of finding another one is slim.Lets hope nobody registers, nobody re-joins the BFMA and they have to drop the whole ludicrous project.

Quote from: Andy7 on Monday,November 18, 2019, 11:32:52 I'll be registering next week. It's really not a massive deal for me to be honest. I'm going to fly with or without it and although I begrudge any amount of money spent, I can live with the registration fee to just make all the drama go away. The whole process has inspired me to move from BMFA to FPVUK when I come to register, becsue they're cheaper - so financially, I won't be any worse off.I never get any trouble with folk on the field, but having a bit of paper to wave about if I do is of some comfort. And of course it'll be all over the news again at the end of the month, so it'll be a great opportunity for haters and busybodies to walk up and ask if I'm doing what I'm doing legally.
Quote from: ched on Saturday,November 16, 2019, 12:05:48 The battery is considered the fuel tank as it 'stores' the charge!! So battery weight has to be included in the sub 250 gms limit!!!
Quote from: shawdreamer on Wednesday,November 20, 2019, 10:46:36 hold on...... when did that get switched?hasnt it always been 250g AUW till now?If thats correct and its 250g WITHOUT battery then pretty much all my frames are still safely under the weight req., would save me doing the mass swap out to lighter designs Ive had on the cards till now if its right
Quote from: Dickw on Monday,November 25, 2019, 12:32:15 Latest version of the CAA Registration Exemption here.Validity date extended to 23rd Feb.Who knows what will change tomorrow!Dick
Quote from: Dickw on Monday,November 25, 2019, 14:22:59 The original plan was for a bulk upload from organisations like the BMFA to the CAA database on 31st Jan. The previous exemption therefore expired on 31st Jan. This obvioualy would not give time for the CAA to process the data, issue the Operator IDs, and for people to put them on their machines.I think there has been an outbreak of common sense as the new date gives time for this to happen.We can but hope!Dick
