Proposed UK law to require drones to be trackable, possibly required to file flight plans before flight
As we predicted, UK law makers are considering requiring drones to be trackable and to possibly require users to pre-file flight plans before each flight. None of which will stop intentional attackers.
You knew this was coming: “Drone users should be regulated and registered in the same way as firearms certificates.”
We just knew this was coming: ““Drone users should be regulated and registered in the same way as firearms certificates.” The model aircraft hobby is about to be regulated out of existence. They will not ban it – but they will make it very expensive and cumbersome to legally fly.
New regulations on model aircraft to take effect in Canada in 2019. An expert says the U.S. is “moving forward with rules for remote identification of drones.”
3D TVs, due to their being a few years old at this point – cannot display 1080 60p videos when using the Youtube TV viewing app. The app degrades the original 1080/60p to 720/60 because that is the only resolution that supported 60p video on the older TVs.
A column at Peta Pixel suggests incorporating “field of view” lines into the mirrorless viewfinders, showing what would be seen if using a longer lens. Neat idea!
Someone flying industrial drones over Gatwick Airport has caused the airport to be shut down. ‘She said the amount of time the drone had been above the airport supported the idea that it was being flown there deliberately. “This very much points to this being planned and not just some rogue hobbyist,” she said.’
The impact of this will be draconian new regulations (many of which are already in the works) that will make the flying of model aircraft (especially away from a certified model airfield) expensive, effectively cutting out most recreational flights.
In September, Mexico issued rules banning operation of drones by non-Mexicans, nationwide #drones #quadcopters #UAS
In September, 2018, Mexico issued new regulations that prohibit the operation of all “drones” (literally all model aircraft) by anyone who is not a Mexican national. This means that visitors from other countries are now prohibited from flying quadcopters or other model aircraft anywhere in Mexico.
