Bad luck and I hope it turns up but Baxters is much too small a space for going to cloudbase height. For inexperienced operators a very large space is needed, that's why model clubs are a bit skeptical about multiple rotors at the moment. Also, have you got sufficient liability insurance? Baxters isn't a public space and you could be in trouble if even a minor injury is caused.

Stupid Boy! And why do you as a parent think it's OK for him to fly a snooping camera over private houses in such an area?

This is flying contrary to Article 166 (3) of the UK Air Navigation Order, a matter the owner is required to report to the Civil Aviation Authority. For the record, could the owner of the unmanned aerial vehicle please respond to the earlier question about Public Liability Insurance also, and provide details of the permission obtained from the owners of Baxters Field.

Trouble is it is not clear whether this is toy or something like a DJI costing several hundred quid. Either way Baxters isn't a good spot is it?There is a growing backlash against this hobby due to inconsiderate use and peoples' largely unfounded privacy fears.

When I was a nipper you had to have a radio licence. Walkie Talkies were not allowed ! Technology moves on and good old Brit. Gov. does not. What we did have was a water filled rocket that you pumped up and it shot into the air - good fun and it didn't go far. There's progress for you.

The water filled rockets were great. German made by AZ?

Tiff- I note you have kids. If one let his toy (ball, drone, or perhaps a bike) have reason to encroach on a neighbour's property- would you be happy to accept them binning it?

Sussex Jim, would you be happy for a drone to come flying down on you in your garden with a camera ? While your Gardening missing you ?? And you don't see bikes coming out of the sky landing on your land ?

I must say I'm in agreement with Lewes Chap on this matter. Carrie seems to be a self-indulgent new-Lewes mother who can see no wrong in breaking the sort of regulations quoted by Lewes Voter 3.
