Still confused about what am I legally entitled to do with anything ABOVE 250g

I am still a little confused. I have the CAA flyer and operator ID. My drone weighs approximately 4.5 Kg (DJI inspire) which seems to cover drones up to 250g. What exactly am I legally entitled to do with anything ABOVE 250kg with my current flyer and operator id’s?

Hi Marcus

Click on the three lines top right, scroll down to"Good 2 Go", fill in your details, and you’ll get all the info you need.

The Inspire 1 weighs 3.6kg with X3 and 3.9 kg with X5.

It’s all in CAP722.

Good luck picking the bones out of the 238 page document.

If you’re serious about drone flying then maybe consider (finances considered) doing the A2CofC (discounted here on Grey Arrows) where you will learn a lot about the legal and practical side.

There’s no need to read the whole document, there’s a comprehensive index. In any case, there’s a lot more in CAP722 that responsible Drone Pilots should be familiar with, especially if they intend to take the A2CofC examination.

We are still waiting for conformation of a first person to fail ;o)
