Blimey! The BBC are right up to date!
That’s a 5+ year old Phantom 2 with the H33D gimbal and a GoPro!!
Good to see that the rate of increase in reported “incidents” is dropping off …. and in comparison to the increase in the number of drones, I reckon that’s good!
But they omitted that comparison.
That’s so old!! That came about after the smuggling of drugs into prisons that was in that TV program months ago!
Oops, sorry. Did have a quick look before posting
You wouldn’t have noticed … about 30 seconds apart.
Aaah don’t feel so guilty now. Will sleep tonight
Hi Daniel - moved your post into this collection of identical posts.
I’m very (easily) confused… I thought the 250g+ registration was starting on November 30th already?
where a serious offence has been committed and a warrant is secured.
There is very little that’s new really.
The exclusion zone around airports will be extended (what to?)
The Police can tell a drone operator to land immediately. (That’s so they don’t get charged themselves with endangering an aircraft by distracting the pilot).
And there’s a fixed penalty of £100 for minor offences. (Whatever one of those is).
Most of the other stuff such as compulsory registration and on-line pilot test had been announced months before ‘Gatgate’
Looks as if it’s going to be 5km.
I was always under the impression it was 5km anyway before the new laws clarified it as 1km a year or so ago.
In the Times this morning it says the exclusion zone will be extended to 3 miles… Surely this is for the big airports only right? I think that sounds a little excessive.
I am also yet to see any hard evidence of a drone being operated at Gatwick (that wasn’t a Police drone) but i could easily have missed it. I haven’t really been following all that much due to the complete shambles of an investigation.
Interesting that they’ve implemented new laws despite having no evidence whatsoever that a drone was even used at Gatwick…
I was bashing on the conspiracy theories not so long ago, but I’ve got to say this whole situation stinks and the lack of information is astounding.
