just watched this cool video wonder if he got in trouble ?

If you find yourself in danger of being taken seriously, then try to do something which undermines or sabotages that perception in some way.


Cracking video.. but broke so many laws..  wonder if he got away with it..

I knew this would get posted excellent video but is it going to reflect badly on the whole fpv scene  :rolleyes:  :hmm:

SkyNet shall rise!!!!!!


Pretty amazing ... The London Eye shots were particularly good ... wonder what time it was when he was filming Big Ben  ;) ;)


I wouldn';t be surprised to find some legislation getting passed soon on some national security basis.

As it is most people can fly models in parks/open spaces without too much hassle, stuff like this just bring more unneeded attention. A good video for sure but could well cause more harm than good.



Great video - nice edit too.

My background is video production and I';ve filmed many times in London. To film professionally anywhere within the Metropolitan District you need a permit which can be obtained quite easily providing you demonstrate that you have sufficient Public Liability insurance but I presume that this film would be classed as ';amateur'; .

I don';t ever recall their conditions limiting you to the type of equipment that can be used for acquisition. However, as most of you will,be aware, model flying in the UK takes place under the legal constraints of the Air Navigation Order (ANO) which is the responsibility of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which basically says (for models under 7Kg) that you must;

    1.Choose an unobstructed site.
    2. At all time keep a safe distance from persons, vessels, vehicles and structures.
    3. Only fly in suitable weather.
    4. Always fly with regard for other conditions such as local bylaws.
    5. Always fly with due consideration for other people and property.

I suppose that someone could argue item 2 - "a safe distance" - what is is a "safe distance"? and who decides it?

I hold a PPL (Private Pilot';s Licence) and generally the Pilot decides what is ';safe'; (assuming that he/she also complies with reg';s too of course). Obviously, the pilot';s judgement is always open to scrutiny and criticism, especially when things go wrong!

Its probably item 4 that would catch them out.. Local Byelaws. There must be some Byelaw in place that restricts RC Flying within the City of Westminster but I haven';t been able to find anything.

Still, a great video - just wish I';d made it  :angry:


If someone wanted to go to town on them, they could be nabbed for:

a) using unnaproved equipement for UK airspace (I';m pretty sure their UHF gear is not approved in UK plus their FPV gear I think is 1.2ghz or 900mhz, neither of which are legal for use in UK)
b) Having an unobstructed view of the airframe and a spotter able to see the aircraft unassited during FPV flight
c) If they get paid for youtube hits you could possibly argue that the are filming commercially, then the floodgates open re licensing, safety etc etc.

Just saying...not judging :)
