Well, the CAA's 'Drone And Model Aircraft Registration and Education Scheme' went live yesterday.  And apart from Canada, it's probably the most convoluted and messy registration and assessment process in the World, requiring two different IDs and an online assessment that goes way beyond the basic Drone Code. And one of those codes must be fixed to your drone. And the other code shoudln't be attached but must be carried and shown on demand.   Which seems beyond messy.


I got 19 out of 20 first time round - the snow question caught me out

Here's what's involved and what the test looks like...

Incidentally I just emailed the CAA to find out how to report a drone stolen to them, couldn't find anything on the site about that.

Yes the snow question was setup to trick I think.

Question 17 of 20
Nick is out flying a drone when it starts to snow.
What does he need to consider to stay safe?

Select one
That other people can still see his drone.
That the snow might obstruct the view of the camera.
That he is not getting too cold to be able to use his controller.

Common sense would suggest the 3rd answer. You should n't lose control. Hope that's correct ?

Yep. There were a few questions with similar style answers that weren't actually the correct response for the question, so I figured it's so staggeringly obvious that you shouldn't fly if you can't control the controller it had to be something more meaningful

I got the snow one wrong too! Not sure what I actually get for my £9.

I have a property within the 5km FRZ of Gatwick and looking at the map, it's also covered by the extended centreline of Redhill - going to be a major PITA trying to check the roof/gutters

Would be good if they had a 100 ft maximum altitude rule in place near you rather than a blanket ban.....

'Test' is a joke and probably just an attempt to justify the outrageous registration fee.

I own a property in Horley that I wanted to survey the roof of but it's covered by the Gatwick FRZ AND the Redhill FRZ...
