I was looking at FPVUK, how do you find them? The website is a bit minimal and as an organisation there does not seem to be much to it except for the insurance which looks like a bargain to me.The only two I know about that does 3rd party insurance is either BMFA or FPVUK.ORG, I use the latter.
Thanks, I think I shall be joining anyway has to be well worth it at that priceFPVUK was started by Simon at firstpersonview because the BMFA initially frowned upon FPV and you could not get insurance. I've had no problems but then again never had to make a claim (who has?) . I've never seen comprehensive insurance available probably because like you say the cost would be astronomical.
Yes, I do understand this, I have never been one to over insure, preferring to take the chance but 3rd party liability with such a craft I see as valuable, for one thing if you do have an incident and may also make it easier to gain permission to fly somewhere. I have just paid upto be clear, those insurances do not cover the aircraft, it is only 3rd party but still worth having.
Thanks for the tip, do you know off hand where I am able to check local byelaws?Also be aware, that depending on where you intend to fly, is to check local Bylaws, as some Bylaws have sections either allowing or restricting the use of any model aircraft.
Is there an AMA ( Americian Model Association) type of Organization in the UK?Thanks for the info Dave I shall do a little reseach
Yes there is the British Model Flying Association I shall do a little searching when I get home. Thanks for the suggestionIs there an AMA ( Americian Model Association) type of Organization in the UK?
Third party liablity cost me £15 for the year with FPVUK I would rather lose it than pay 800 euros to be honestI understand that in Ireland, insurance is around €800.00.
That covers the drone too for loss.
