You might be right, had this one through the other day... BVLOS is very new and will take a lot to get it cleared for safety by the CAA.

Was driving home from a roofing job today and the sunset was looking rather good. I'd have liked to have been there a few mins earlier but pleased with these...

I get my cars MOT'd in Wigmore! 

I was born in All Saints and have many happy memories of sliding down the Connie Banks out the back of my house on bits of cardboard!!

Wow - Used to do exactly the same but at the Darland banks on a Morris Minor bonnet, just a little bit further on. This is bringing back some happy memories.

Thinking about it I probably walked and cycled past the back of your house on a regular basis.

A possible explanation - I read this morning that the authorities are seriously considering the use of drones or un-manned aircraft to monitor small boats packed with illegals trying to get to the UK.

If you wanted to know how confusing this industry (and hobby!) has become and will further become in June next year when EASA rules are adopted, watch this!

The company I work for flies a fleet of unmanned, fixed wing drones to inspect the high voltage transmission cables and gantries/towers across the Austrian Alps. Flying over the channel will be easy....

I'm aware of fixed wing drones. I was working on the fact that they show a DJI Phantom in the article.

Being very sympathetic to those who have flooded, but also interested in how the area looked, here's Teston, Yalding and the caravan park appropriately named 'Little Venice' close to me.
