Hey.... Omegoolybird (soz if spellings wrong) are you friends with the Wherethefeckarewe tribe of pygmies who live in the savana with the tall grass or the winkywanky bird that has it's foreskin connected to it's eyelids so that when it winks it wanks and vice versa? Not heard a reference to that tune since I was Yomping with my GPMG in the RAF Regiment!

Seems like the UK FPV scene has exploded in the past few months. Seems like only three years ago there were only 20 of us ( ithink 04/12/10 was the date for FPV Freeze, and I think that was the first time we had a proper nationwide gathering....) The next meet should be huge!

Paul

P.s. do we still have links to the FPV Freeze links, iv'e lostt my bookmarks, would be ace to see the way we used to fly

that article on the fly away, I was interested that the caa said the plane was a uav not a model. is this because it was not flown los? does this mean if you break the rules of rc you change the kind of plane you are flying?? I would understand if, like the trappy case, it was commercial, but this is different

Na he would still be in trouble.
He's in the most trouble for flying in a classified airspace which is illegal fpv and los
There are a few differences as to what LOS and FPV can do.
Most notably
FPVers can't fly near buildings, and can't fly within 30m of people.
So yeah, fly your 7kg turbine jet 1m away from people but if you have a video camera on your foamy, don't do it.

Honestly the guy is not doing himself any favours; the picture the report has posted looks to have been taken from around 1000ft... Also, a plane worth 2k, video downlink, quite obviously FPV.
Ooh. LRS (long wobbly diamond antenna) an a laptop (on top of his car). Allegedly worth 2K and it flew away on it's own? really??
