New regs come into force in November, it seems:
The Spark weighs 300g so it’s covered by them. I’ll look into my requirement to
register my Spark, but I can’t imagine that enforcement will come quickly. I
might get myself a commercial licence.
If you avoid annoying or worrying people you can fly in free airspace. For my
latest shot I talked to the other people in this small caravan site before
flying. But the owner of the site, a builder, owns his own Phantom IV as well.
