Something I’ve been wondering and not seen any official comment on the subject.
If you were out flying your drone ( intentionally within the code) and somebody took exception to itAnd reported to the police !,
could or does anyone have the right to see or ask to see your flight logs ? Would it be required for you to prove your flight ?
If it was discovered that you (from the logs) briefly ‘say’ went above 400’ or a bit closer to a building than you should have been, Could This lead to prosecution !?
Any thoughts on this.
The main question I suppose I’m querying is are you obliged to show your flight log.
Many non-DJI drones don’t have logs - nor does my P2.
If there were a legal requirement to only fly drones that logged flights, then this would be a different scenario.
As I recall, this was rather fundamental to the TV prog about drones being used to fly drugs into a prison and, even in that scenario, there wasn’t (at that time) the legislation in place for the drone to be confiscated and the logs examined.
(I think there may have been some changes to the laws since in cases where drones have been used for criminal reasons.)
All the info on the ‘proposed’ new police powers are here, though no date as they have to put through Parliament - which will be dependant of parliamentary time - which may be pretty busy in the near future!
