Meanwhile, please define drone. Is drone an radio control flying vehicles?
anymore legal flying field? looks like only old holland rd based from the CAAS map, got surprised that Tuas also restricted area to fly
Jurong is even worse, quite often low flying aircrafts/helis at west coast/Chinese Garden/pioneer/NTU area.
fly where.sg map shows those area near Tuas check point is actually flight path of military aircraft too.
Tuas South is still ok to fly during weekends cos is quite "ulu" place, how ever new factories are building up faster than u can imagine of. So enjoy this hobby while still can lah.
As for true authorized flying field in SG, join RMS lor, fly at Pasir Panjang area, the club got all the necessary papers to fly rc plane there ����
Authority wants to catch "multi rotor" (a.k.a drone) but they fire their shots at UAVs. Just like Chemotherapy, which kills both good and bad cells to treat cancer. CAAS is following the guide book they have and seems like policy maker doesn't play RC planes/drones. If the panel of the policy makers are made up of RC enthusiast, the restriction will be different. Hahaha
I only hope that the enforcement is not carried out too strictly and i also dream of one day the authority will define a day & time (like 6am to 10am/5pm to 7pm during Sundays or public holidays) which we are allowed to fly at the favorite flying sites that happened to be within 5KM radius (area around Changi airport is definitely not allowed but airforce seldom fly their aircraft on sundays/Public holidays at airbase leh)
Once upon a time, when everyone was flying gas powered, every Tx have to be registered with Telecom and pay annual fees.
Legal or non-legal ground, there will be volunteer to make sure Tx frequency don't clash when people are flying.
We fly far but at "safe height". Authority never give us any trouble.... until fire station site became "state land".
Hell(excuse me pls), which piece of land in our country are not somehow or another belong to the state?
Then are these land belong to Singaporean which during NS we protect? How come we are not allow to use them?
Giving up on high powered stuff, I found a tiny empty plot at a super ulu place.
Brought a Cheerson CX-23, removed the camera and happily flew for a months or so height not more than 20m and refrain from sensitive area
, till another another fellow share the field came in with the big DJI flying with google...
Hell(excuse me again), there are military area around, and we are flying between two airport. Nut head fly high using camera was simply asking for problem!!!
I gave up the ground :-(
People flying model today are simply not as discipline as what we used to be.
The whole issues is about FPV...
and of course bad eggs and nut brains
I love PAP
