Thread Name: BS: Drones
Subject: RE: BS: Drones
They said on the radio this morning that drones are sold with a device already installed that prevents them flying too close to airports; it causes them to land or to fly back to the person controlling them. They said that this must have been disabled by the people using the drones at Gatwick.
Having a law that makes all drones have a registration number would be as effective as the law that says all cars must have a visible registration number - it doesn't stop criminals using false or cloned number plates in order not to be identifiable.
