I made similar comments when I replied to the consultation. Unless I am mistaken, pilots only have to consult an authority when flying in a restricted zone. I was surprised to see the restriction applies to all UAV (but not control-line models), regardless of weight. Hopefully they will lift the restriction on paper aircraft soon.

I use the Altitude Angel app if I want to do that. To be fair not sure who actually reads the notifications, but it can be run on the ST16s from the Play Store. Think you can log a flight before hand when you do have data by logging the start time and duration.

To be fair the most useful location for such a system would be in the newly expanded FRZs around airports, where you have ring the tower anyway. But once you've done that reporting apps like Altitude Angel are a little redundant

I'll keep the ST16 clean personally, too many people have messed them up trying to add Apps etc.

Think you hit the nail on the head with your last sentence.;)

Well the US has the LAANC approval system rolling out. We haven't needed it so far as we've had lots of leeway but I can see a very similar system being implemented in the UK
