It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “It fell off the back of a lorry”
Now it’s fallen off the back of a drone, very 21st century

With all the tough regulations in place for mere mortals like us, Amazon manages to clear any obstacles on their way. I am really curious to find out how they manage this. Especially distances and avoiding other drones in the air

I thought the drone had to be in line of sight?

Of course, but…one rule for those very wealthy organisations that grease the palms of the legislators and another for us mere plebs. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

This is one of the main reasons for clearing out “hobby” drone flyers from as much airspace as possible.
Originating in Brussels these rules have been rubber stamped here for purely commercial interests, much as the “airwaves” have been sold off to mobile phone companies.
Personally, I’m not that bothered as just about every area of life is “controlled” these days…

Hi everyone,
I don’t mean to be a killjoy but I’ve just been reading the governments proposals for our drone hobby.
These are 2 years old but give you a clear view of what is going to happen after “registration”.
Please take time to consider this.

Cheers,
