It looks dangerous to me

It has no awareness to anything else around it
and no collision avoidance.

It could be miles away, guided by GPS without pilot input
what if it flew into a light aircraft or low flying military jet ?

Not true. many aircraft do fly below 1000ft

Your GPS controlled model is classed as a "Small Unmanned Aircraft"
and no longer a Model Aircraft.

Lots of info in CAP722 http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/33/CAP722.PDF

e.g.

"4.1 The aim of this policy statement is to clarify the position of the CAA in respect of its
role in assisting the UAS industry to find a solution to achieving a capability and level
of safety which is equivalent to the existing 'see and avoid' concept. It is also
recognised that Sense and Avoid is only one of a number of requirements that will
need to be addressed for safe operation of UAS.

5.1.2 The separation and collision avoidance capabilities must be able to:
• Detect and avoid traffic (air and ground operations) iaw Rules of the Air;
• Detect and avoid all airborne objects, including gliders, hang-gliders, paragliders,
microlights, balloons, parachutists etc;
• Avoid hazardous weather;
• Detect and avoid terrain and other obstacles;
• Perform equivalent functions, such as maintaining separation, spacing and
sequencing that would be done visually in a manned aircraft."

"NOTE 3: Further Constraints the CAA May Think Fit to Apply
Further constraints the CAA may think fit will normally include a prohibition
on flight:
a) at a distance beyond the direct unaided visual range of the pilot/operator
of the said aircraft and in any event at a distance exceeding 500 metres
from the pilot;
b) within a specified distance, normally 150 metres, of any congested area
of a city, town or settlement;
c) within a specified distance, normally 50 metres, of any person, vessel,
vehicle or structure not under the control of the aircraft operator except
that during the takeoff or landing an aircraft to which this subparagraph
applies shall not fly within 30 metres of any person other than the person
in charge of the said aircraft or a person in charge of any other small
aircraft or a person necessarily present in connection with the operation
of such an aircraft;
d) unless the aircraft is equipped with a mechanism that will cause the said
aircraft to land in the event of a failure of or disruption to any of its control
systems, including the radio link, and the person in charge of the said
aircraft has satisfied himself that such mechanism is in working order
before the aircraft commences its flight."

As you see it's a Minefield What a Face , you would need a Lawyer to give a full answer

I'm in No way an expert on this, but I do see potential problems.

Exclamation well i have a paraglider in my house and that is massive its a full flying sorce i can sit on the seat and fly in the uk with no training and no help and there is no licence in the uk for that at all even a novice can fly it and any one brave enough to fly one can buy one and take it up and i think that must be much more of a problem for jets or aircraft and that is defintly f,p,v and by the way light aircraft fling lane is 4000 feet i know this because below 4000 feet is for power microlights and thing that go in to that catagrey

so i understand what you are saying and im greatful for all the info but i just cannot see any problems with a quad flying under radio even if it has a gps with it any way all out there and you Paul L

santa santa happy xmas santa santa and please have a good rendeer rendeer new year x x x x x x x x x x from ron and the wife pauline santa santa

As a qualified Hang Glider pilot I'd advise you would be a fool
to fly that Paraglider without training or instruction.
I have seen the broken limbs due to that.
Contact the BHPA for a list of instructors and Flying Schools.
http://www.bhpa.co.uk/
The local club is The North Yorks Sailwing Club
http://www.nysc.org.uk/

One major accident with any public GPS Controlled model aircraft (UAV)
will likely mean the CAA banning all such activity.

Sorry Ron , I don't intend to put you down or stop you having fun
just want you to be aware of the dangers.

Have a great xmas
Paul santa

Flying Schools. BHPA i would not recomend them as there has been so much with the BHPA please look at the history they have on the net for deaths and accidents

i would recomend this man for the price and experiance he is a great guy to know and train with and ill be going to scotland for 3 weeks flying with him in the summer and i cannot wait

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Precision-Paragliding-RE-Training-BHPA-Ltd-rated-pilots-non-UK-pilots-/190617492796?pt=UK_SportingGoods_OtherSports&hash=item2c61b01d3c

this man has years experiance and has never had a fatalatey

also did you know BHPA Flying Schools. for paragliders the instructer does not have to have any flying experiance just a righten exam please check this on the net

and buy the way i have rearched this and i would never take my life for granted it can be dangrus so please think befor you think about flying a big wing glider


just want you to be aware of the dangers. of the BHPA Flying Schools


any way sorry for going off the subject this is not about x coptors and fun things lol



now back to the subject iv bought this and i will say i will be flying it as i have 250 acres of ground to fly on with permmition to do so ,,so i really will have to stay up here with it but never mind i would have liked to of come to your club and have a fly with you lot and let you see it and what it could do but i understand you would not want to see this in action and it would be bracking your polices never mind ill be doing a video as soon as i can for you all

santa santa santa santa every one have a good xmas from ron and family santa santa santa santa

I trained at a BHPA School
I flew Hang Gliders for 10+ years
100's of hours flight time.

My experience of the BHPA training scheme is nothing like the Ebay advert.
I also knew many people who trained with the BHPA scheme.

http://www.activeedge.co.uk/

Active Edge Paragliding & Paramotoring is a British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) registered school based in the Yorkshire Dales, England. It's run by one of the most experienced BHPA Senior Paragliding Instructors and multiple British Paragliding Champion pilot, Dean Crosby. He's the only pilot in the UK to compete at National level in all three soaring disciplines, paragliding, hang gliding and gliding.

He has been teaching HG and PG for over 25 years. you should talk to Dean he has flown in this area many times.

It's your choice , but talk to other Pilots first
The North Yorks Sailwing Club
Club meeting 1st Monday of each month, Blackwell OX Carlton in Cleveland.

It's NOT to make you pay more Ron

It's to ensure your Glider is Airworthy
