Interesting NOTAMs / Flight Reports / temporary flight restriction zones

I would be interested to know what this one is about, if it is someone on here etc. Looks like a sort of club activity or practical type event. Although having 20 UAS in the air at a time if reading correct could mean close scrutiny of frequencies.

Normally if it’s that many drones it will be a presentation type thing, but 20 also doesn’t seem like that many when you consider how many were used at London New Years?

I have no idea how many were used at London New year? I will admit to only being interested in drones since I bought a toy one and found out how much bad press they seem to get. So seeing a swam of them could be interesting for me.

The location is not a million miles from me so I may just pop in the car for a look see?

Around 300 if I remember right, but they are all pre programmed , imagine the chaos having 300 of them trying to navigate to exact position. Similiar to the big meet this coming weekend :joy:

Definitely worth driving around and having a nose, could be as part of a film, although I think they normally put up FRZ for that

Well to be honest I am confused as I have been to googlemaps and found the Lat and Long for the location pinned to be 53.818307, -1.977626 and not 534906N 0015836W or as I am reading it as 53.4906 and -1.5836. Please let me know if I am taking these reading incorrectly?

We left the 70’s a few years back when you had to fly a pennant on your aerial to prevent frequency clashes. The digital age allows for goodness knows how many on the same frequency … and since all DJI drones are on one of two frequencies, that’s a rather good thing.

Check out Choreographed Drone Shows - General Thread to see how many drones can populate the same, small, space without a problem.

Well I suppose there are 13 UK frequencies at 2.4GHz and 24 on 5 GHz frequencies. Although I tend to think of them as just being used by Wi-fi systems which tends to use more than a single channel many times taking 4 channels at a time as required by the band width, yes they use multiplexing systems so in theory it allows for multiple users on the same channel.

I will have a look at the thread mentioned… guess it will be similar to the China show where they started to fall!. :slight_smile:
