"One of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them: It is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. Anyone who is capable of getting themselves into a position of power should on no account be allowed to do the job. Another problem with governing people is people."
also since no one seems to have linked to the video (which apparently isnt ip blocked or at least isnt for german ips)

that said while i agree that this was handeled incredibly poorly be the looks of it i can see their point as far as flying across a motorcross circuit with people driving on it is concerned (although i wouldnt consider that reason enough to shut down a club)
Interestingly enough -- they are also citing the flying of an FPV model beyond visual range as an example of the regulations that we've broken.
So how come CAA can't cite the regulation that prohibits that and have refused to provide me with the list of rules and regulations that pertain specifically to UAV/UAS (ie: FPV beyond visual range)?
I'm nearly 100% sure that it's because there are no rules covering this type of operation. The discussion paper of 2007 doesn't seem to have been followed up and no regulations have been created from it.
