I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Is everyone else thinking that is all really impressive, but the best bit is it dropping the camera module off in flight?!

''However, having discussed 166(3) at length with the CAA at Gatwick they were quite clear that they require a human being to be looking at the model directly with his eyes for the entire duration of the flight.
The problem is that these rules are written with 149kg UASs in mind, and to some extent 6.99kg SUASs. I can see why they want to restrict the big boys for the time being (until a real sense and avoid solution is proven and in place).''

Quote taken from a thread on FPVUK. Note the uper weight of 149kg - theres a lot of cash and comercial interest in FPV/UAV for survailance and survey work. Makes the hobby side look positively amature'ish.

That little parachute was pretty cool.
Pump a little Jay-z in the background and it would be perfect.

Andy afro if you've got the urge to get your feet wet with a little UAV action try one of these.

It looks decent for the price without going over a grand.

Going into quad - I'd advice to buy a decent mainboard with accelerometers and pressure sensors, with possibility to connect 4-8 motors.
That will cost about 250-300 quid, but then you can just do anything you want, program it from a computer, add GPS and so on.
Standard ESC will not work quick enough to fly smooth, so there's another 20 quid to update each ESC - or buy updated one - about 40 quid each.
