Here we go again, the many being punished for the actions of a few. This registration is a complete waste of time and money, and the people they are trying to catch WON,T register. All I can think is these people are thick !!!!
They will end up with a database with the same people as the BMFA, the ones responsible enough to get insurance.
Unbelievable :x :x :x :x :x :x

I wrote to our MP and three Euro MPs all giving the same replies about public safety, shows you how much they're interested and how much they know.

Fair dismembering of the proposed 'system'. What Bruce Simpson doesn't mention is if the numbers do not meet the CAA estimate, costs will fall across the smaller number of those who do register. So £16.50 /year will inevitably be cranked up !

All the comments I am reading just proves just how crazy this whole proposal is. We have MPs and MEPs who believe this is for public safety will stop rouge drones being flown over airport, WRONG!
Bringing in £1,000 fines for law abiding modelers who decide they won't comply with a useless scheme.

As I have said before the problem is with how drones are sold. Your mobile phone are activated when you purchase a new one,so the technology exists for a drone to be activated when it is registered. Yes some people will find a way round it, as MDev pointed out, but they will be a hardcore few.

Do we all boycott this mad idea ??

It would be interesting to hear what the BMFA have to say about this.
If I hadn't seen the youtube video how would I know this existed, were the BMFA going to notify
all its registered members as to the changes?
I wonder how this would be policed? Would a normal plod know about this?
What happens when we go to a flying event ie White Sheet, is someone going to ask are you registered?
I guess should an incident happen the first question will be, are you registered? If not what happens then?
So many questions.
