EASA’s Prototype Commission Regulation on Unmanned Aircraft Operations stands to damage the European unmanned aircraft (IE model aircraft and drones) scene by limiting UAS to 50m (150ft) altitude, 100m max distance away from the operator and maximum velocity of 54km/h (which is 33mph or 15m/s). These limits will need to be built into the devices for them to be allowed to be sold in the EU (including the UK – even after Brexit).
Nothing over 250g can be built at home!
Have your say! Reply to EASA before the middle of October with your thoughts on their proposals!
