quick-start safety guide on flying drones for fun and First Person View's video that explains the basic rules.
The CAA, in partnership with VisitEngland, has launched '400ft Britain', a drone photography and video competition.
The competition is aimed at images of the countryside as drone flyers need to observe the UK Drone laws which prohibit flight over congested areas or within 50 metres of a person or building.
400ftbritain.com for more details and to submit your photo or short video. The competition runs until 31 January 2017.
