BIG NEWS for FPV Drone Pilots!!! | Mr MPW
Everyone Matt Williams, mr. mbw, and today big news for fpv pilots, [, Music, ], [ Applause, ], everyone that lives with Trump do be welcome to today’s. Video hope you are doing well, wherever you are now a big one.
Today, I think, continuing along the theme that we’ve had over the last few days, if you’ve been following along with the channel big news for fpv pilots. Now it’s, one of those things where I think fpv pilots on the whole have been quite concerned, quite rightly about the upcoming rules and regulations when we switch over to the new Yossef framework.
But I think there are a few things hidden inside the cap 1789, which are worth pointing out worth bearing in mind, because actually it looks as though the CIA have been very pragmatic with this, and you’re, going to be able to continue.
If not do more, potentially legally, then you’re able to do now. So let’s, dive it in and take a look before we dive in to the meat of the video. Today, I’m just going to ask you to hit that like button smash it if that’s, something that you feel like doing, press the subscribe button and press the Bell button next to subscribe.
I can stay up to date with all of the information we ‘ Ve got coming all the time. Ok, so inside the cap 1789, then what we’re gonna do is look at the UAS open 60 and then I’m gonna dive into a little bit more detail on the exemptions which you see a reference in the Uas open 60 and again, hopefully getting you into these documents.
Getting you aware of them and showing you where to find the information that’s, the really important thing, not just giving you the information but showing you where to find it, and hopefully that’s working for everybody, so responsibilities of the Remote pilot this rule sets out the corresponding tasks that the remote pilot is directly responsible for these are generally the more immediate day-to-day actions and are essentially split into pre-flight and in-flight tasks.
Their cover actions such as possessing and carrying the correct proof of competency, fitness to fly sites, inspections and preflight checks, compliance with operational procedures and regulatory limitations, including visual on a site requirements.
It goes on say that there is a requirement to activate a green flashing light when operating at night, which will apply from the 1st July 2022, which I know the FPV community are trying to get removed from their requirements as well.
The rule also makes special notice of two points. Areas were any form of emergency response. Effort is on the way must be avoided unless the person operating the remote pilot permission to enter, and then the bit that I think is really interesting and useful.
Potentially for fpv operators fpv pilots. This will provide an alleviation to the visual line of sight requirement in that remote pilots find in the open category may be assisted by an unmanned aircraft observer, as stated in the definition that observer must be situated alongside the remote pilot.
This allows the remote pilot to look away from the aircraft, for example, to a screen or fpv equipment, while the observer undertakes the visual lookout task and so provides the same freedom as is currently offered by the two general exemptions that been issued by the CIA, o Rs 1290 for an hour’s 1297.
I will dive into those in a second, so I think personally, that is really given the green light for fpv to continue under the cap 1989. Under the knee. We asked the framework, however, and I think this is very important for a lot of fpv operators to grasp.
You know what you’re doing at the moment. If you’re going out and flying on your own and potentially find a long way away from yourselves, is not street-legal. Okay, it isn’t by the definition of the law.
Legal for you to do use you do at the moment to operate under these exemptions, have to have a visual observer with you situated with you, so that they can do the look at maintaining visual on a site with the aircraft, and so that you can fly The aircraft in comes from doing that, so that’s.
One thing to bear in mind: okay, it’s. Not the CAA, saying you’ve got kind of caught, plunge to go off and do whatever you want and do that flying, but provided that you’ve done and according to the rules and regulations, you should be good to go.
So I’m, going to now dive into those exemptions. Just so, we can take a look so that everyone is aware of them particular fpv community and what is entailed in the kind of particularly the remote observer, the competent observer side of things, those dominant take a look okay, so diving into the general exemption for eight Five seven: this is the official record series for twelve ninety seven, and I think this very much mirrors the wording of the twelve ninety four that we just took a look at the part, though, that I think, are a bit more detail than this.
From section seven onwards, it talks about the competent observer and it’s, roles and responsibilities, and what the remote pilots, roles and responsibilities are to make sure that the competent observer understand their remote their responsibilities so worth having a look at section 7 likes A very very similar I would suggest to the other exemption, but it lays down again further in black and white, exactly what we as the remote pilots need to brief our competent observers, the regulations and responsibilities that they are bound by then and when they’re operating as that constant observer for us so that we can fly fpv safely and legally.
So, as i say, i will drop links to all of these documents down below. I think it’s really interesting. You know a lot of people like safe, saying that fpv is dead and all that sort of stuff we’ve kind of played on that idea on the channel in the past, but again really important.
The you know it’s, a huge part of the community. Lots of people are now getting into fpv, particularly from a commercial drone in perspective, because it’s cool and there’s, lots of amazing angles and shots that and dynamic flights that we can get and capture that we just can’t do with a standard drone, so I think this is going to become more and more prevalent as we move forward.
The CIA have by no means put the kibosh on fpv. I think what they have done is put the onus on us as fpv pilots to make sure that we’re, doing it safely and legally so yeah happy to take your thoughts comments.
Questions on this, though, please drop those down below. As always, I’ll, be around in the comments when the video goes live for the first 20 minutes or so so, if you want to get in there get in there quite quickly and drop those comments down below please don’t.
Forget to give the video a like, if you did, give it a thumbs down if you didn’t subscribe, if you haven’t and make sure you spread the word about the channel, if there’s, anything else, you’d like to know about please.
Let me know I’m here and happy to do this kind of thing to help you and to help the community continue to thrive and to grow, but do everything safely, because I think we’re in a place where a lot Of people are thinking that drones are dead and we’re, not gonna be able to continue flying and there’s, all these draconian rules and regulations.
But I think if we operate within the spirit of the you know that they’re intended, then we are going to be good to go as a community, but I’d, say give video like you did thumbs down. If you didn’t subscribe, if you haven’t, I’ll, see in the next one.
I’ve. A Matt Williams fly safe and blue skies. [ Music, ]
