Thread: Latest CAA Update

Question for someone who thinks they know.

If we ALL have to register and put a number on the planes/drone/ heli. what about the planes the club owns. Our club has 3. used for training, and anyone of 5 people could be using it for training. So who registers them?

A good few of us at my club have been discussing how we are not going to pay the £16.50 each. But do it as a group. One of two ways,

1. form a cooperative and call ourselves XYZ Cooperative model flyers. We have 50+ members in our club, But only 10/15 to form the cooperative, and pay £2 each.

2. I would register with the CAA, and in return the 10/15 will pay me £2 each.

In each case just one registration number and one fee.

My club has also muted the idea of being the registered operator for the whole club, and as members pay nothing, just the club pay the fee.

Just been reading the CAA drone registration/ test. The cost is per year. We have a number of OAP`s in our club that say they are not carrying on when this comes in. So if that figure is rolled out there will not be 40,000

Does it say anywhere how often the £16.50 has to be paid ? is it yearly ? As 170,000 x £16.50 is £2.8 mil. And if there are only 40,000 of us then it will be £70 per person. What i have read is they are expecting 170.000 over 18 months

Paul C. Not sure which parts list you have been looking at ? But just engines has the full asp range of engines all blown up , and fs 52 has the woodruff key as has the 61. as they are the same engine. The 70 and 80 being the same engine do not they have a woodruff key but a collett . as does the 90

Good luck with that. No bids so far ? and there is another one for sale but less money. and no one making spares for them. ASP/SC/Magnum fs range all good engines. i have 7 of them. ASP are a victim of there own success . Out of those 7 , i only bought one new, people were not buying new. Just engines have limited stock of spares, and are having some spares made themselves.

The only way to have a throttle on/off safety switch is Throttle cut. And as you have said Frank, that option is not available in glider mode. So Areo mode is the only option, then if you want butterfly/ crow or whatever , the it must be done in a mix

Page 129 throttle cut is what you want. easy as a drunken tart, any switch you want.
