Following the post “Lords call for compulsory Drone Register – VOTE NOW” Drone Reg has received a huge amount of votes with mixed opinions on the question in hand.
We have seen the rise of drones taking a hit in the media recently and the push for legislation that restricts the use of your flying machines is high on the agenda.
It seems that users have various opinions on the matter and we are here to help you have your say. After the vote count, the clear winner with a vast majority (68%) indicates that most users are in favour of having the right to choose to be on a government register for the ownership and personal of their ‘drones’.
It was interesting to see the level of concern through the other results with 21% voting for a compulsory register and 11% suggesting that you should register your UAV if it is above a certain weight.
Although the majority are against it, some users have stated, “If it means I can use my quadcopter for financial gain without going to the CAA for permission I would not mind within reason”. It is unclear if this would be the case but this could have a huge impact on the community allowing for competitive markets to open for all flyers.
We can’t thank you enough for taking part in this poll and wish you happy and safe flying!
