hi, hope you guyz can help me out here...

I understand that R/C flying is subject to the law. Complying with the air navigation order and noise pollution guidelines.

Stated :
____________________________________________________
Air Navigation Order

- A person shall not recklessly or negligently cause or permit an
aircraft to endanger any person or property.
- A person shall not cause permit or animal to be dropped from
small aircraft so as to endanger any person or property. (This
includes dropping of bombs, sweets, parachutists or watever
from your model)

Additional restrictions only apply if your model weighs more than 7kg.
____________________________________________________

So what are the restrictions for models weighing more then 7kg then?


Thankz in advance :)

Cheers :D

Those rules are for full-size aircraft, not models. The only aeronautical rule I know of is you can't fly an RC model within 5 miles of an airport without prior permission. The only FAA rules concerning model planes are about robotic drones and remotely piloted planes that can fly outside visual range from the operator.

Check out the (AMA) Academy of Model Aeronautics.

But the Max limit on a model for AMA sanctiones is 55 lbs. You can go higher but then you are dealing with the IMAA.
