    Is it possible to fly below 20-30 meters high around and airport-as I live near one as was wondering if it will let me activate it at a low altitude

    will my/our fees pay for the construction and upkeep of taking off and landing facilities/pads at designated drone flying spaces? like say west of Alice Springs but north of Adelaide? or will my fees just pay the inflated wages of a fat unnecessary bureaucrat somewhere in Canberra?

    On your website it says that to operate a Drone using FPV (First Person View) requires a CASA Approval to to fly recreationally or you have to become a member of a model aircraft association. This is outrageous as most people want to fly for fun and do not want to go out spending money on memberships and licensing. Flying LOS (Line of Sight) on an FPV (First Person View) Drone is much more dangerous than flying with an FPV Headset as you can easily lose track of which way the drone is facing, resulting in a crash. You can ask anyone that has flown an FPV drone and they will say LOS is much harder to control. Come on CASA, if a person wants to fly FPV for fun they should not have to be giving you money.

    if i have, say 43 drones, will i need to register each and every one of them for the going fee? or will it be a one-off fee that covers all my drones, like how my car license fee allows me to drive any number of different cars anytime anywhere

    Lol LOS with a FPV drone

    What’s sad is that most Australians will just blindly follow this.

    if i wanted to force more government regulations and unnecessary fees upon recreational drone operators, should i or shouldn’t i fly an unregistered drone above a major airport, such as, say, Gatwick airport for instance and then disappear never to be seen again even after a massive dog and pony federal anti-terror investigation that sees no one be charged
