I thought it was about time to start a U.K group, mainly due to the time difference between us and USA, so members can discuss their issues here and hopefully get the help they require sooner?

    Drone talk today on Radio 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03757ck only a short clip on them...... I did a quick interview about privacy and how they will not be "covert" and will not be easy to miss sitting somewhere close by watching!

  • Hi folks,
