The Drone Threat (Government Legislation)

1. This threat comes from the use of multi-rotor devices equipped with GPS, Video Transmission (FPV) and capable of autonomous operation for criminal activity.


2. There is no evidence that fixed wing RC model aircraft and RC model helicopters pose a threat due to the skill level required to operate and the limited range, requiring visual contact to maintain control.


3. The proposed legislation will not remove this threat since criminals will continue to operate outside the law, while it will affect thousands of modellers who have operated their equipment (Including Multi Rotors) responsibly and safely for many years.


4. Technology is already available to detect, monitor and if necessary take over control of these devices. This equipment should be deployed in sensitive areas to detect and prevent their operation.
