FPV UK is a not for profit association of hobbyist radio control model aircraft (or “drone”) pilots.
First Person View (FPV) flying is flying a model aircraft (or “drone”) using a small video camera mounted on the aircraft and video goggles to see the view from the camera. This first person view gives the impression of actually sitting inside the cockpit of the aircraft and adds a whole new exciting and enjoyable branch to an existing hobby.
FPV UK is the national governing body for radio control FPV and “drone” flying in the UK.
1) To promote the safe enjoyment of First Person View model aircraft (or “drone”) flying
2) To represent FPV model/ “drone” flyers in discussions with other bodies (specifically the CAA, NATS, DfT, and Ofcom)
3) To cover members with £5m 3rd party liability insurance
FPV UK works with the regulator for UK aviation – the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the National Air Traffic Service (NATS), the Department for Transport (DfT), the House of Lords, and other bodies, on matters pertaining to “drones”, FPV and recreational model flying.
