From the NZ Herald article:
"We are travelling at very fast speeds, about 2 miles a minute and we are covering a lot of ground quickly

Any helicopter landing at that speed as more problems than a small drone to contend with.

"The drones are very small and we have no way of seeing it

Yet, according to the story... that's exactly what they did. WTF?

A Kingsgate Hotel guest said they saw the drone being flown nearby before landing on a balcony of one of the rooms.

They said it looked like the culprit was a very skilled drone operator.


And they're qualified to judge the skill of the operator how -- or are they just speculating?

Don't get me wrong, anyone who flies a drone within 7m (or 20m, depending on which "news" story you believe) deserves a damned good arse-kicking. However, it becomes *very* apparent when giving these stories even a cursory inspection that they're not strong on fact, self-contradictory and bathed in speculation and fiction.

So the burning question now is... would this have happened if the new (massively over-reaching) proposed regulations suggested by the MoT in their recently released discussion paper on new drone rules have prevented this.

The answer: Absolutely not.

They were called in (so I heard) because CAA said "registration of recreational drones is a waste of time and money" but the politicians and money-meisters pushing for this were adamant that they wanted the revenue streams so they turned to MoT instead.

I can't comment but I do know that the MoT are far more compliant than CAA, from the perspective of their political masters.

By the way, I never transport *anything* with my recreational drones or RC model planes so what the Fk does MoT have to do with them?
