Excellent response to a very difficult situation. Well done.
The Civil Nuclear Constabulary are in the same boat as the British Transport Police. Both a non Home Office forces and funded privately. They get their powers from various Acts and legislation.
Very true & TBH unless you know that, the guns they carry makes you think twice!
Is it too much to ask that the police know the law before they start challenging people?
It’s never stopped them before
Did you just miss the entire Covid pandemic?
As a newbie to drone culture and all its rules and regs etc. I found this post really informative. For me this would be a situation that would have stopped me ever flying again. I now see that it’s about following the rules and having all the paperwork and knowledge in place and keeping calm
I had a very nice lady walking her dog down the canal today asking if I had a licence for the drone.
I took out my licence and she was very happy - her dog wasn’t he just ran off, apparently a rescue dog.
It seems many read or view items re drones - a shame those who give our hobby little respect.
Assuming you were both on a canal tow path, good job she didn’t know they ban TOAL
I would have told her to mind her own business…(with all due respect Madam).
