Eh? CAA is a UK body, it may have the power to stop a british flagged aircraft or registered pilot anywhere in the world but how could it stop a Frenchman using one in France, or an American in Texas?

They all sing from a very similar sheet when it comes to aviation rules as you would expect. Google your chosen country and CAA and you'll find rules pertaining to you. Even the FAA for our friends away yonder can be found under CAA via Google if you wish.

Put another way, if you do wrong "A" CAA will probably come calling or of com in our case for transmission issues. Again, Google whatever country you are in to be sure you stick within set power and frequency restrictions.

Cheers

lagged reply on this thread, sorry! - did you end up buying a copter in the end Brian?

I take my copters out on the water with me when I can, although landing can sometimes be difficult depending on wave conditions.

Hi, Alex. Nice to "talk" to you again after 12(???)years.
I will always remember your kindness when we popped into Milford in Cyanide.

Yes, I did buy a copter-a P3P-but not NEARLY as nice as yours though!
Here is a sample:

Nicely done alex.

The phantom 4 is out in a couple of weeks but tbh it isnt worth upgrading from the 3 imo.

Ive pre ordered the new typhoon H, due next month.

I got this one because the camera can come off and go in a hand held grip, has retract landing gear, 360 degree continuous camera and it folds down into a small backpack.
