Thinking of taking flight assessment for 7-20kg class, anyone flying that class?
At some point I'll be looking at investing in a larger UAV, with the capability of carrying a larger payload (DSLR, higher capacity batteries etc.).

Flying in multiple countries on a UK permission ?
Hi everyone, New here so please dont bite if I say something a bit newbie. A job we have in the pipes would mean needing to fly in a few different countries, ranging from a few places around Europe, NZ to the USA and Canada etc I have just last week sent off my Ops manual etc for approval of my permissions, so should get that back in the coming weeks and be all above board in the UK.
