UK “drone” arrests and CAA actions – the rules we all need to follow & CAA comments

October 29, 2014

The recent high-profile arrest of a pilot flying over full football stadiums, associated negative headlines, an upcoming election in the UK… What we all need to do to protect the hobby and fly safely. This is a reiteration of my previous comprehensive video on the law in the UK:

So here’s a summary of the recent bad press caused by misinterpretation of the existing law (at best) or pure idiocy; my discussion with the CAA on what their stance is, and a summary of what we can all do in the UK to ensure we protect the hobby and make sure no one starts wanting to introduce further restrictions on our flying any time soon…

My “On the Kitchen Table” videos are mainly aimed at newcomers to multirotors, quadcopters, drones and UAVs, particularly to the DJI product range, and the Phantom line in particular. I have how to’s, product reviews, tips, tricks, hints and information for beginners and those in the early stages of the hobby. I film “on the kitchen table” to show people that, like me, you don’t need a workshop and an array of specialist equipment and years of experience to get started and progress with flying these amazing aircraft and enjoying making great aerial videos and stills. So if you have bought, or are thinking of buying, a DJI Phantom, Phantom FC40, Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ or Plus, or even building your own DJI Flamewheel F450 or F550, we can do it… on the kitchen table!
