Dronecode here...

When you fly a drone in the UK it is your responsibility to be aware of the rules that are in place to keep everyone safe.

Follow these simple steps to make sure you are flying safely and legally.

Make sure you can see your drone at all times and don't fly higher than 400 feet
Always keep your drone away from aircraft, helicopters, airports and airfields
Use your common sense and fly safely; you could be prosecuted if you don't.

Drones fitted with cameras must not be flown:

within 50 metres of people, vehicles, buildings or structures
over congested areas or large gatherings such as concerts and sports events

bet it has like a 5 minute battery life

Gets good votes on … Gets good votes on Amazon...https://www.amazon.co.uk/JXD-6-Axis-Quadcopter-Camera-Control/dp/B01AUHZ2DCWhere can you fly these nowadays though? Not over neighbours houses etc as i understand?



Did you actually read the reviews or just look at the score?!

They look like paid reviews to me (and to one of the other reviewers!)

Which is about right for this market. The Hubsan's have 7 minute battery life...

xZEDx

bet it has like a 5 minute battery life

Which still exceeds the attention span of most people who will fly it.

Definitely doesn't have a 720p camera !!

If it's actually 'wifi' video, it won't be very good for actually flying with - for the moment you still need analouge to be useful to fly with as digital introduces too much lag.

That's for a 509G, this deal is for a 509W

Headless mode sounds quite appropriate for some of the muppets that I have seen flying these things

RC control is 2.4ghz, wifi is on 2.4ghz - awful design. Don't expect any decent range or interference free flying - the 400ft limit is in no danger of being breached.

Will only be suitable for flying inside, and lag from FPV will make it near impossible, especially if it has a narrow lens.

In other words, get something like a syma x5 or x8c/g and add a proper 5.8 camera or don't bother with the camera at all


Took my chroma out the other day around valley where our office is. Had some local come out moaning saying you need a licence and its scaring his dogs 100m away and threatened to call the police. I said please do, we're not flying commercially, we're flying over 50m away not above buildings or people and if he knew his Pythagoras then he'd know it was closer to 150m, plus the 50m limit has an exception for take off and landing. If he'd have asked us nicely if we minded moving down a bit we would have.

Also is the height limit 1) 400ft above sea level, 2) 400ft above take off point, or 3) 400ft from the ground beneath the quad?

So, if:
1) - if you take off from a hill 401ft, then you're flying illegally
2) - if take off point if 2000ft up, then you can fly 2400ft?
3) - if its 400ft from directly over a quad, if you launch from a 401ft hill with a vertical drop, fly over the ridge, you're flying illegally, or if you follow a hill that goes from 0ft above sea level to 500ft, then you can fly 400ft to 900ft?

Realistically, will this take clear aerial pictures?

why this one over this one with loads of "real" reviews? amazon.co.uk/Sym…BYQ

I was suprised how decent it was.For the price i did not expect it to even fly the video quality is fine stills are not so great it goes high to.If you looking to a cheap done to test the water i can recommend this enough.

So this cant be flown in London or surrounding towns?

I saw a similar one being flown in Camberwell. People were fascinated by it (no one complained).

Technically no, if you live in a terrace house and fly inside or in the back garden, then you're going down unless you're house is 100m sq and you only fly in the exact middle of the room. Expect a SWAT team.

Realistically... the motorway speed limit is 70, I can't remember the last time I drove that slow. As long as you aren't flying over school children or taking pictures of the neighbour in the shower then you'll be fine. I imagine the hobby will just be banned at some point

Pretty sure it's 400ft above the ground - i.e. relative flying height as opposed to sea level altitude. In the list of regulations I read that one is listed under the not flying it out of your line of sight one - as in the CAA define 400ft as your vertical line of sight, assuming that you can't see it properly if it's higher than that.

The laws and regulations really need to be clarified for these things - obviously it's primarily common sense but then you do get people like your 'friend' there who think that they're illegal unless you're qualified (as in have passed a test and got a license like a driving license) and a permit, whereas in actual fact there is no license available at all, anyone can just fly them, and permits are only required if you want to fly near a building you don't own and/or if, as you said, you're doing commercial work.

No, there isn't really anywhere in London that would fit the regulations - in any street you're going to be close to buildings you don't own and there will be people around. You'd have to go to a large park at a very quiet time of day, but it would have to be somewhere where you had good enough visibility to see anyone that came along so that you could land or keep it away from them. A friend of mine in London has one and he took it up to Hampstead Heath to try it out but I don't think he's flown it anywhere else in the city. Obviously some people have got drone footage of London but I'm sure it was all done with due care and consideration for others. There's always a risk so you're best off flying them either in the middle of nowhere or somewhere where you've got permission and everyone in the area is aware that there is a drone flying around.

So my question was valid at the time

How does this compare to the DM007 RC Quadcopter 6 Axis Gyro Explorer UFO?

The sooner someone starts making surface to air missiles to take out these buzzy little f'rs the better. Having said that you'd probably down this with an air gun pretty quickly...

Its 400ft above the take off point

Also 2.4ghz is fine for control, I regularly have mine out to 500m away and 400ft up.

​You sound like fun! Tell me, do you throw the neighbouring children's footballs back over the fence after you've punctured them with your purpose made spike or do you keep them as a trophy?

I want to try a drone, but I think if I buy cheap crap to test the waters, it'll just put me off.

I was wanting to get a DJI Phantom 3 Standard. But can't justify £350 odd. This will do nicely until the Phantom drops price more significantly.

I did that with a remote control helicopter. It wasn't even cheap crap (mid range Walkera), but it was horrible enough to avoid them ever since.

Ordered one, but something tells me I will be sorry

2.4 is great for control, but not paired with 2.4 WiFi! try and fly a dji phantom with a gopro with with WiFi enabled and see what happens after 200m. My point is about interference. Fixed wing fly with much lower frequencies, 1.2 video and 433 or 900 RC

Apologies, I didn't notice the thing actually transmits the video over wifi, I thought you were talking about 2.4ghz control in general. That really is a stupid set up
