The drone pilot started at age 15, and said there was nothing else like flying drones, especially at speed. The sport could now even lead to a career, with Mr Whibley named the Freestyle Champion at the Australian Drone Nationals in 2019.

There are not many other speed racing drone pilots in north-western NSW, and Mr Whibley said his city competitors were very jealous of his practice pad. “I’ve been flying FPV drones for about five years now, so I’ve had a fair bit of experience, but there have been lots of crashes, I can tell you that,”

    My 13 year old son worked hard to save up for his own drone and bought himself a Mavic Mini after completing many chores. I read all the CASA rules about how to fly and how not to fly the drone including looking at local government guidelines and all was good. We went to a local footy oval here in WA and began to fly the drone without another person in sight. A council Ranger showed up 10min later and asked us to leave stating that people needed to feel safe at the park. I said no one is here he said it doesn’t matter in the off chance someone was to arrive at the park they need to feel safe. I respectfully said the CASA rules don’t say anything about in the off chance someone rocks up at the massive oval where your flying your drone to pack up and leave. I said we read the local rules as well and we’ll make sure we don’t fly over anyone and stay over 30m away at all times. He said no you must have missed it on our webpage you have to leave you can’t fly drones anywhere in our city council the rules are on our website go look again. I went home and guess what not a thing was even mentioned about flying drones in the area not even a single refrence to drones anywhere on their website except to say they use drones to spy on ppl driving in 4×4 block out zones. I checked the website for the next council over and it said as long as you follow the CASA rules you’re welcome to fly drones here. I really hope my local council comes to terms with the fast pace of our technologically changing world and encourage the younger generation to embrace it rather than bullying them to pack up and go home. Who know one day some bright kid out there might contribute to building the first commercial flying car or go into robotics and help invent/create bionic limbs or something cool like that.
