When I was in the army we used to have families complete with kids and pushchairs ignoring all the warning signs and red flags, and walking across a firing range where we were firing live ammunition.

Seems a bit harsh, could you not afford some targets then ?kulou

Thread: drone footage

As Forest Gumps Mum would say ' Stupid is as stupid do's'

Many a video out there of people acting responsibly and quite a few 'Proper modellers' having a dabble with fpv/multis these days, also many a newbie out there abiding by the law and setting clubs up. Don't see much footage of that posted though ?


Thread: Theft From Cars...
22/04/2017 21:34:11

Good turnout at the club today and loads of cars in the carpark, our carpark has a locked gate, Don Valley MFC South Yorkshire.

One of our lads heard a bang then car alarm going off, so a couple of lads ran across, 2 motorbikes ouside the gate and 2 lads running out of the field and getting on to the pillion, 2 cars with windows broken and things stolen, another car with brick marks on the window where they tried and failed. Police told us there had been a lot of incidents in Donny today with the same M.O.

Not looking for sympathy folks, no one was hurt.

Keep your wits about you and leave nothing on show even though you're off the road and feel safe, this type of crime moves around till the cretins get caught.

First incident in over 30 years sad

Nope John's responsible for his own well being, any mistakes he makes (not that he do'swink) he will take full responsibility for, any advice offered from any quarter will be considered appropriately. Any "governance" must be via £50 club fee or the "law" of the land.

John...anti "governance June 8th face 1

Incorrect the BMFA make no laws, we govern ourselves under the laws of the land and we're philosophical about it.

BMFA don't govern me nor our club, if they do...grass wants cutting n can we have fish n chips 14 times for Thursday night..oh n mushy peas for me please wink


If you hold a BMFA membership card or have BMFA insurance, then the BMFA do indeed govern your flying activities, John.

Good governance doesn't mean someone sitting on your shoulder or telling you what to do. It simply means providing a workable framework of basic rules to keep you, and those around you, reasonably safe in your flying activities.

Perhaps you aren't a member of BMFA?

Edited By David Mellor on 18/04/2017 22:49:49

Yep i'm a BMFA member and clubs affiliated.

Self governing though, you don't need a handbook for common sense.

My kids where brought up by me n the wife, they're responsible adults..the BMFA played no part in that.

Society has all the laws it needs to deal with idiots, BMFA has the Nats to sort and grass to cut at the NFC, leave em be they've done their bit.


18/04/2017 16:25:51

There's info in BMFAs mag and it's website, it's not been passive, it's engaged where it would do the most good.


18/04/2017 15:30:59

Nope smoking's a bad example, i enjoy a nice cigar despite you addressing my recognised problem, but i do abide by the law on where i do it.

And i repeat the BMFA has done its bit. nothing stopping you and society doing a leafletting campaign though.

Having flying insurance costs money, smokers pay a heavy tax and can't smoke in many places, advertising's banned, tobacco is a poor comparison.

BMFA do's it's bit, leave enforcing the laws to those with the authority to do it.
