and not just Devon & Cornwall - seems like they are ALL grounded!

But what's this about flights within 50 metres of people and property being suspended "until further notice"? Do the police have an exemption that we don't? And if so, what makes their drones magically safer than anyone else's? (Or not, in this case!)

I would have thought that the police will have an exception to fly where they see fit due to the circumstances(on going crime in the process)…. but duff gear will hamper them.....hopefully its a simple fix for the things..... made by DJI I see.....bit un-nerving one falling from the sky-major damage to anyone below...

It's more likely to be a dumb journalist garbling the info they have been given.

Maybe they're worried about them getting nicked if they suffer a power failure?

'..fears they could fall out the sky'

Well at least it's a change from people fearing the sky will fall down, ..... if we leave you know what. wink
