I'm happy as long as it doesn't cost, the us trailed a cost version and ended up refunding people

Completely agree! It needs to be free or there will be a lot of unhappy pilots around!

Not happy at all! Why should we have to sit a test to fly a small drone! Ridiculous.

It seems like it'll only be stuff we should know anyway!

Does anyone at DJI know if they're involved with the testing like in the US?

Much the same as came out in Germany a couple of months ago. The knowledge test is a farce, took 15 minutes online and cost 25 Euros. Beter these rules as none or a complete ban.

Because there are soooo many idiots and irresponsible owners and I like to think that the new rules might curtail their activities.

people complained in the same was about driving tests and car insurance.  The fact is a small cheap drone can do a lot of dangerous and criminal things.  Sadly there are  many idiots in the UK with drones. From what I have seen recently of the proposed rules it is fairly basic and common sense.   I expect there will be a cost to it but it seems fair enough.
